Staycation – let’s see what I can do with it
Ah. a week off from work with nothing planned! 🙂 Well, nothing fun planned, 😦 I do have some house things to do but no trips, no events on the horizon. Considering this is turning out to be an actual summer weather feeling week for a change I kind of regret not planning anything now. Oh well, I have another week in autumn and maybe I can make it up then.
What I will do though is try to make the best of my usual surroundings and try to do some local photo explorations. I think shooting in familiar places takes an extra effort because you have to look at things subjectively as if it was for the first time. I often say I like to shoot what other people don’t notice and here is a good time to shoot what I normally don’t notice. Or shoot things that I had in the back of my mind to try someday when I have the time. No excuse now, I have the time!
These are few shots around Point State Park in Pittsburgh. It was a beautiful Sunday evening for my wife and I to go for a stroll and since we haven’t been around the Point in a while, I thought it would be a good place to give the wide angle lens another workout. Yes, I am still in the wide-angle mode and I almost force myself to use it exclusively lately just to milk out if it what I can. The different viewpoint is refreshing – but not as refreshing as a beach vacation. 😦
