A place for my photos and random thoughts

Just too much noise.

with 8 comments


Plain and simple, I wanted to write. I came to the coffee shop to enjoy a mocha and get into some writing but with the background noise it wasn’t going to happen. All I could hear was the annoying music in the background and a couple of guys talking decibels above everyone else. As I sat there sipping on my mocha my eyes wandered outside through the window. My mind quickly followed and I was now focused on the sunshine casting shadows of the black cast-iron chairs and tables across the flagstone patio. No longer a writer but now morphed into a photographer, I found myself pulling the camera out of the bag and moving towards the French doors leading to the patio. With shadows and shapes like those, images had to be taken. I’d write later. Just too much noise!

  3. I’m glad the noise didn’t distract your artist’s eye. Great shadow play in this.

  4. Apparently, noise causes good things to happen, this was a good image with lots of feel.
    It’s interesting, this. Here, in Sweden, there’s been a new movement initiated, where famous persons claims back the silence. The audio pollution is really a problem, nowadays, too stressful for all but the already stressed.

    • I’ve really gotten into the silence and quite in my years. I concentrate better and feel relaxed afterwords.
