The weather finally turned blustery, cloudy, and colder. I can take the clouds and colder, but I don’t like walking with a camera when it is windy. It is hard to photograph foliage when it is blowing around so much and it is hard to keep my hands warm in the wind. I just got a new hand warmer today. As you can see by the blue light, it is charging. The light blinks when charging and I had to make 4 frames to catch it on.
But the weather is only the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. My biggest problem is that I don’t know what I’m going to take pictures of this winter, as a result I am faced with the possibility of having to refrain from taking pictures and blogging, and that is depressing.
Early this morning it looked like we might get the rain we need, but as of this afternoon, they never came. Our skies cleared off and it got hot, up to 80 degrees F. I still am hoping for some showers tonight and cooler weather arriving soon.
When I walk around, either outside or inside, I try to keep my eyes open and watch for unusual light and shadows around details. My reasoning for why I like details is due to the fact that I rarely go anywhere new so I get more creative with my vision and even find the end of a handrail to be of interest. Fortunately, the light changes with the time of the day as well as the season so I often see the same object, but in a different light.
I started photographing these kinds of things right after I read the book, The Practice of Contemplative Photography. It was one of the first photography books I read. You can see the definition and look at lots, of pictures by clicking here.
We have had a nice warm spell. Not to be pessimistic, but it could, probably will, be our last warm spell as we move on into the depths of fall, and then winter.
I looked up from my computer and saw this through the window yesterday morning. I liked the colors so I couldn’t resist picking up the camera and making a picture.
