365-294 Make a note

One of those days where I didn’t feel like heading out for a photo. I got to enjoy playing my guitar today and just relaxing. So instead of looking for a subject I thought I would make one. It’s a rare event that I try still life photos, mostly because I lack any proper “studio” gear. Regardless I decided to…

365-293 Let’s keep it simple

I am back home again. Hopefully I can get caught up on some things while I’m here. My day consisted of watching it rain and then driving home on the highway. Although I sort of kept an eye out for a photo, I didn’t find anything of interest. Well, I did see some nice autumn views when driving through the mountains…

365-292 “It’s for an art project”

As I was taking some photos of a building today, a woman came out of a door that I just shot and said “may I ask what are you taking pictures for?” I replied, matter of factly, “it’s for an art project!” She stared back blankly, followed by a brief silence and then muttered “Hmm……..OK.” I use the “art project” reply…

365-291 Pardon the interruption

It was another day of traveling back to Charleston for work and being at work until nearly dark. Throw in simply being a bit tired from my wacky work schedule and it’s a recipe for disaster, photographically speaking. I absolutely couldn’t find much to shoot today. And what I did, I didn’t do well. I did get to shoot some…

365-290 Turn around

For the second day in a row I have a photo of an old structure. Whereas yesterdays barn was a structure I was familiar with, I just discovered this house today. At lunch time from a project near Wheeling I thought I would explore a road I haven’t been on. Checking the map on my phone I saw that it…

A different look

I’m sure you’ve noticed the different look. I wanted to find a way to better showcase the photos and I have to thank Nathan Stitt for tipping me off to the theme. I threw a random header photo up because I think the duck has seen enough action. If any readers have an idea of an appropriate header photo, please…

365-289 Passing by

I must have passed by this barn a zillion times in my travels. It sits along a four-lane road in the middle of commercial and residential developments. I assume eventually it will disappear so I thought I should get a photo before it’s too late. The lighting seemed nice today and I was able to easily get a photo. I…

Scenes from West Alexander

A few shots I took in West Alexander, PA on my way to work this morning. Since I was going to work I couldn’t spend too much time looking for details so I worked somewhat too quickly and just shot things that caught my eye. Unfortunately, composition seemed to take a backseat at times 😦 Photos processed with Topaz Black…

365-288 One of two

I got a call this morning that I had to go to work on a project near Wheeling, WV. I had plenty of time to get there so on my way I did a quick detour through the town of West Alexander, PA. I took a previous 365 shot there (365-264) and I remembered some other details from that day that…

365-287 Splendor

The creativity is just taking a nose dive lately. Maybe I’m a little burnt from trying the every day photo thing. Of course, I don’t have long to go and I’ll keep it up but it’s wearing a little. It’s not that I’m not seeing potential photos, I do, but I’m not being able to take any. I often see…
