Happy Black & White Wednesday!
No lunch meeting or appointment yesterday so I grabbed my camera, a quick salad and off I went, looking for images. I decided to take a road that I have never been on before and it turned out to be an interesting although dirty (car wise) experience. The word desolation kept creeping into my mind as I saw the vast expanses of barren fields covered with snow and leafless trees for as far as the eye could see.
There was never any doubt that all the images I captured yesterday would be rendered in black and white. I didn’t really go past many farm homes, just lots of farm land and very few structures hence the word desolation. 🙂
Part of my job (although not officially in my job description) is to help people solve issues with their professional (work) life and in some instances in their personal life as well. It is amazingly rewarding when successful and devastatingly disappointing when not. It is one facet of my work that I both love and hate. Well hate is not the proper word, perhaps regret is a better choice.
Yesterday I experienced both sides, one of success and one of failure, so it was an emotional roller coaster for me yesterday. Comes with the territory but it’s never routine or without feelings.
On the way home last night I stopped at the car wash, because my black car was a light shade of brown from my noon road trip. That made me too late for any photography on my home commute. I have about 25 minutes of good light before I have to start cranking the ISO up and then it becomes a real challenge. So I’m glad I had the opportunity to take a ride during my lunch break.
That’s it for today. Hope you enjoy your day and it has some color in it.
Thanks as always for supporting the blog. It makes my day when someone says something (good or bad) about one of my images. Thank you.
