While out for errands this morning a car pulled into the parking spot in front of me. Almost immediately, the reflections on the windshield and hood of the newcomer caught my interest……..I know it’s pretty lame but what else is there to do while waiting in a five acre parking lot? Make a photograph or two to pass the time.
If nothing else, it helped to take my mind off the sunny, humid and warm day. One can almost pretend the reflections are on cool water.
Sometimes I just want to see what something looks like as a photograph, usually as a matter of curiosity. Some of them go into the “what was I thinking?” category. Others speak to me on some level.
This photo was made last Sunday, a rather hot day by most accounts. When I first stepped into the shade of this tree I just stopped and looked up. Noting the play of light and shadow in the leaves I pulled out the trusty phone and took several photos trying to capture how things looked and hopefully the way it felt.
The following photo was made this morning, again in the spirit of curiosity. Some rain last night had brought the lichen and moss back to life after the dry hot weather of recent weeks. The change was quite dramatic.
Thanks for reading.
This photo from the Dashcam Chronicles is for anyone sweltering in the fetid swamp climate they call summer and wishing for some better weather.
I took this photo during the summer of 2017. I had been driving around looking for a good subject and watching these clouds in the distance. As time passed the sunlight was changing how they looked. When the edges of the clouds lit up and turned white it made them appear to be cloud waves breaking on a beach in the sky. Good imagination seems to be a plus at times, just my thought on it.
On the way to work one morning I spotted this scene of the house with the lights at the back door and the truck then I noticed the unique lawn ornament. After looking at the photo for a while realized this was a great idea, the concept of heavy duty, multipurpose lawn decoration. Feeling the need to have a tree removed, a reflecting pool or koi pond dug out or just filling in that random low spot? No problem, step outside and fire up the bulldozer in the front yard, you will be finished in no time at all.
