I grabbed this shot a couple of Sundays ago during a short, but productive photo walk with my friend, Mike Tully. (Click the link and you’ll see Mike’s shot from this same location.)
Yeah, I know, graffiti should be in color … blah, blah, blah. But I’m in a B&W State of Mind, so I’ll just claim that the neutered graffiti helps lead the eye through the image.
It is only a couple of weeks into 2013, but that short photo walk with Mike, spurred from boredom, could prove to be my most important of the year. Yes, I know, it’s early and I may end up shooting things I like better through the year, but it’s not always about the image. It is also about the challenge. Mike and I traveled light (one camera, one lens) and we had only a couple of hours to shoot. We made the most of the time and used the self imposed limitations to our advantage.
We also managed to “Break the Boredom.” Coincidently, a couple of weeks after my shoot with Mike, Scott Wyden posted this reminder on that topic.
On another note:
If a meeting I an attending this morning goes well, I may have an announcement on the Blog tomorrow morning. So stay tuned.
