I never saw it

Window

This image came up unexpected. By that I mean I did not see this or envision it. What caught my attention was the late afternoon light. We had rain and overcast skies all day until late afternoon when the clouds broke and the sun came out casting long shadows. I saw the light against the bulding and grabbed my camera. I honestly did not see the window until I looked through the view finder and then it was all I could see. I moved around placing it in various positions in the frame while keeping my reflection out of the window. I also expected to convert it to black and white but I do like the subtle soft hues instead. I settled on this one and ran it through Topaz Adjust. I never saw it coming.

Noon Shadows

It’s not about moving pixels, it’s about pictures that move us. – John Weiss

It feels good knowing how often I look for light. It tells me I’ve grown as a photographer, no longer just shooting but looking for images which stir me inside. Not everyone will like this image or others I will take but that does not matter to me. This image is for me. I saw the light, the shadows and then took the steps to create an image that is appealing to my eye. in fact, I took several images until I got the one I wanted. When the opportunity arises, I will shoot it again. And, I’ll share it on this blog, just in case someone else may enjoy it.  Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Starting Out Nice

A Morning Sunrise

The morning sunrise through my hotel window. Most of the my flying lately has required early morning show times, some as early as 4:35 AM. Yesterday morning I was in Manchester, NH and could sleep in late because our flight time was noon. As I saw the orange glow of the morning sunrise through my window I jumped out of bed and grabbed the camera. Standing in a cold room with only my shorts on is a sure way to wake up. So after a couple shots and enjoying the sunrise colors I showered and began another day. The day had already started out nice.
