February 12-18, 2013
It’s been a while since I posted. I’m nearly two months behind on my posts. I need to catch up!
I haven’t missed a day of photos yet. I’m pretty proud of that. There have been days when I’ve been totally uninspired. It’s the commitment that keeps me going. I just wish I had some greater inspiration some days. This is also the most stressful time of year at work. I should be taking a few moments everyday to relax and release, but I find it difficult to walk away from my desk to do that. But I need to.
As the month of February wore, the daylight started coming back which was nice. But I still found myself taking shots late in the afternoon. I did manage to venture out on President’s day because it was a holiday. I loved that day’s shots.
To start the week I shot this photo from the parking lot of the gym I go to.
I’m not sure why I went with the Black and White treatment, but I liked the way the light was on the building. It was originally the red neon lights that attracted me, but I then like the results in Black and White. I’ve managed since this shot to take a few others from the gym parking lot. It helps me instead of looking for something around the house to shoot.
Like the next image.
February 14 was Valentine’s Day! I chose to go with a self portrait from the restaurant we ate at.
February 15 turned into a later day at work. We had the Good Lovelies in town performing, and I got this one as we were leaving the office for home.
Saturday was a shot from around the house.
I got this picture Sunday after getting home from the gym in the early evening.
Finally, it was President’s day, and I was able to get out and shoot around Anchorage. First I drove down to Potter’s Marsh. Potter’s Marsh was the topic of my first post about this 365 Photo Project. It looks quite different today.
I took lots of pictures that day. Next I drove across town to Point Woronzof and got some fun shots of the shifting ice in the inlet.
When I look at these last two images, I can see that I have really improved as a photographer. It also shows that when I am intentional and work to get my images, I’m much happier with them. If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well.
I just wish I had more time.
