Looking at You Kid
I know this is going to sound weird, but I am taking the week off. I have given myself permission to do those things that I enjoy without feeling guilty about not handling this chore or that honey do item. I am doing this in part because it is Thanksgiving week and partly because I just need some time to re-center my thoughts and embrace some new creativity. As such, I am limiting my time on social media and spending more time with my camera, toys, and brain rotting video games.
I do hope everyone has a great week and I will see you next week, refreshed and relaxed! Also, Squirrels RULE!
Abstract Sunrise at Higgins Lake
I know my landscape photography skills are weak, yet I still like to get out there and practice from time to time. I figured that while I had a wonderful setting in my grasp, I should attempt some sunrise photos over Higgins Lake, Michigan. So, I set my alarm in preparation of making it down to the water as the sun crests the trees.
I spent about 45 minutes shooting various boats and objects on the shore, all while taking in the crisp morning air. While many of my shots ended up in the “never to see the light of day” folder on my computer, I ended up keeping a few images like the one for today. Once the sun was just clear of the trees, I started playing with bokeh and a bit of abstract work. I like this shot as it leaves just enough for the imagination, yet defines enough that the mind establishes the setting. In the end, I had fun and that is what matters the most!
