Every morning after I get up I go into my computer room and open the blinds and look out to check on the weather. When I do that I’m looking and thinking about picture opportunities and checking out the birdbath.
I leave my camera sitting on my computer table most of the time so that I can grab it to make pictures of opportunity; but, usually it just sits there staring at me and reminding me that I need to go make images.
The morning I made this image it was dark and dreary and raining lightly so I picked up the camera and captured the image through the window. The challenge then turned into how can I take another picture of nothingness and “pull” something out of it that is slightly different from all of the others that I have made of the birdbath.
So comes and goes another day of rituals and challenges, the ingredients of life. When they stop you are dead.
