Maybe it was for the better
I was trying to think of what to post last night, thinking that I had no interesting photos from the weekend, when the power went out at my house. My house and the surrounding neighborhood, for whatever reason since it wasn’t storming and there wasn’t an accident that I was aware of. My electric flickered off and on just a few days earlier and was out for an evening a few weeks earlier than that. I am suspecting a kink in the works somewhere along the line.
With that, I did feel a bit of relief that I couldn’t post anything. After browsing through a number of photos nothing, and I mean nothing, caught my eye. And that was the problem, I imagine – nothing caught me eye while I was shooting, hence, nothing caught my eye afterwards. Garbage in, garbage out.
Better luck next time.
I did manage to take a photo of this really cool old garage on the south side of Pittsburgh. The owner was just locking up when I strolled by. He saw that I had my camera and said that lots of people like to photograph his garage, understandably. He said he had to go, otherwise he would let me look around inside where he had more old signs and equipment. I thanked him and said maybe I could catch him at another time. As he left I peered into the window and snapped a shot of the brush and oily machine.
