Week six felt a little uninspired after the previous week with all the sun and beauty that Alaska had to offer. Coming back from Homer to my ordinary life did make it challenging.
I did manage to look at the Columbine in my front yard in a new way and got the wonderful shot of the purple beauty.
To shake things up, I set my camera to Black and White for a day and got this cool shot of the Dandelion. We spent quite a while trying to get that shot. I still think I could do better.
When you see pictures of the park near my office, you will know I was phoning it in for the day. Hence the title of that day’s shot. As much as I am loving this 365 Photo project, some days it’s a stretch to get out and find something interesting to shoot. I do like this waterfall, but I didn’t try very hard this day.
The white fuzz shot was done on a Friday evening walk. That fuzz is cottonwood see blowing down from the trees. It was everywhere! When it was really in the air, it looked like it was snowing.
The mountain shot was in Eklutna. That was a wonderful day and a long bike ride. We were 12 miles away from the parking lot when I shot this. The sun was coming out, and I love the way the clouds crown the top of the mountain.
The next two shots took me home to Fairbanks, Alaska. My parents are moving from their home of 30+ years into a condo. The duck decoy on the bench is a good example of the random chaos that was ensuing during the move. I like the red door popping out from the gray of the side of the house. And I love the shot of my dad eating his lunch in the item strewn garage on the pristine red couch. It’s so my dad.
And that get us to July 3rd.
