I saw this on the way to work yesterday. In a few seconds my mind ran the gambit of… do I stop and take the image and be even later than I already am or is it one of those that got a way and I can remember it as the signature shot that could have been… I stopped.
Even though it is not the shot I thought I had when I took it I still like the looks of it. I only took three shots so I wasn’t that much later. People kid me all the time about the amount of photography equipment I bring with me every day.
Photography is one of the three passions I have in my life. If it were just a hobby or a matter of liking to take pictures then a single camera in a small bag would do. But I try to capture the very best image possible with every shot I take. Not knowing what that shot may require I bring the entire kitchen sink with me. Weird I know but that’s the way I’m wired.
I didn’t have a meeting yesterday so I grabbed a Subway and went hunting for something. This old barn was sitting off the road in a field. There is a small stream that runs in front of the barn and wanders down to the roadway.
I tried to get that stream in the image and as a result my angle in relation to the light was not the best. Had I been able to climb the fence and walk closer I could have gotten a better shot. But since I was wearing a suit and it would have been trespassing (there were signs) I opted for this shot even though it’s not what I wanted.
Jeanne fully expects to get the call someday that I’ve been found at the bottom of a ravine and there doesn’t seem to be any reason why my car would have traveled down there. I was coming around a tight curve and saw this old John Deer wagon sitting in the field with the last remnants of sunlight shining on one side of it. Never mind that I ended up on the wrong side of the road before I looked back at what I was doing. 🙂 Anyway I turned around and captured this look.
It was hard to capture this image because the road is narrow and I had to keep dodging cars long enough to capture the shot. 🙂
That’s it for today. This is the first time since I started the blog two years ago that I’ve posted something every day of the month. Doesn’t sound like much but it was my goal to post everyday in October.
I don’t take many days off but I’ve found that occasionally on a weekend it’s nice to have a day off. Anyway, thanks for sticking with me. If no one was reading the blog I’d stop and I don’t want to stop so you have to keep reading. Please.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
