What I Pic

I’m keeping it simple today, both photographically and in text. It’s just one of those kind of days. As usual I took a variety of photos today but most of them were just test shots with my lens that just came back from repair.

With a gray cloudy background, I played around a little with a cross-processing look to lighten the mood. That’s all for now! Enjoy! Pentax K20D, DA55-300

I took the first and the last shot in this post yesterday, the others I took over the last few weeks. I used to worry about being timely ( trying to post photos I took that day or at least that week ) but I find it more interesting to collect & curate as a mood arises. It may cause some confusion, but my attempt to create beauty is much more important to me than being accurate. I save and sort photos waiting for the perfect collection to come together. Sometimes the photos inspire my thoughts and I wait till the words come out which can take weeks. Often a color pallette or subject forms…
