Black and white(house)
I’m posting this photo mainly to keep this site relevant and up to date. My photography has been painfully lapse the past few months and I find myself with the flu again this weekend. The third time I’ve been sick this year! Considering I could probably count how many times I’ve been this sick in the past say, ten years, on one hand, you can imagine how lousy I feel. The good thing is I got sick on the weekend so I didn’t have to miss any work, the bad thing is, of course, I got sick on the weekend. Oh well.
Speaking of work, my new job is great. I’m learning a lot and starting to feel comfortable with my position. Everyone I’ve met so far have been terrific and helpful. Once I put my initial “new job” fears aside, It now looks like everything will work out fine.
This photo was taken from a job site high on a hill. I was going to meet some co-workers there and had gotten to the site a little early. I noticed the moving shadows caused by the clouds and thought I would capture the house right before it too was in shadow. It was a one shot deal, I didn’t have time to try any different compositions. The house was in shadow right after I took the shot. I was thinking of high contrast black and white processing when I took the shot to enhance the brightness of the house against the shaded areas. I had to burn in the foreground trees a little as they were a bit too bright and distracting. It’s not a serious landscape shot. I don’t think one could be too serious with landscape photography in this part of the country, this time of year. Besides, I’m not a serious landscape photograper.
