I wasn’t sure I’d make it to the end of the week, but here we are on day 7.
I took my camera with me on my lunch break uncertain of what I might find. Turns out, I didn’t have to go far, as this image materialized before I even made it out of the parking garage.
I’m unapologetic about using the tilt-shift effect built into the camera. It’s made for subjects like this! Who doesn’t love trains, especially ones with a classic Americana motif? The tilt-shift effect makes it look like a model train I might have played with in my childhood.
I was off early this morning to a location that I thought would make for some solid, albeit, predictable shots. Another location presented itself on the journey and I found what was inside very interesting.
I saw this location a few weeks ago and took some shots but I wasn’t happy with the lighting. I returned today on a lunch break and while the lighting was basically the same, the location spoke to me more.
One of the themes that may bubble-up in this endeavor is flood recovery, or rather, the lack of recovery. The home featured here is in a prominent neighborhood near downtown Columbia, yet it looks as if nature has taken over.
I had another idea in mind when I set out this afternoon, but I ended up in a completely different place.
I took a mile-long walk around the city today during my lunch break, and at 90 degrees with a high degree of humidity, it was a tough slog while wearing my work clothing.
Kind of interesting how these rural scenes appear not far from the city center.
