My images have been a bit uninspiring lately. I don’t know what it is. Maybe the change in weather, maybe I’ve exhausted all of the possibilities in my immediate surroundings. Probably more than anything, a change in environment would help me artistically and even more, mentally. Since being layed off, I’ve been around home more than I have ever been in recent years. It is nice being with my wife and doing a few things to the house I never had time to do. But at the same time I really have no funds to do much of anything else. I’m glad I shoot digital because I never would have been able to afford shooting film as much.
So, plenty of time and no money. What to do, what to do. I think a short road trip is within my means but I’d have to travel a fair bit from where I live to get somewhere that feels substantially different. At the same time I think that if I go somewhere different I may stumble upon a new job because the prospects are few around here. Unless you’re a doctor or fry cook. I’m neither. I’m trying to weasel my way into the art world since that’s where I really belong but that takes a while, and a few lucky breaks, to get “in with the in crowd”.
These shots were taken at a tree near a shopping center. I liked the cool yellow leaves. Pentax K20D, DA17-70.
