This is one of the buildings I see from my office window at work. It is located across from Veterans Memorial Park (shown in yesterday’s post) and is across from the public library. I walked over to get a shot from the opposite direction of my office view.
I work on LaGrave Ave. and this window is a part of our building. I took a walk at lunch today to take in the warmest weather I have felt in a very long time. I’ve never noticed until today the reflection of the church across the street.
The photo I took on Commerce Ave. was pretty popular, so here is another one I took just before the shot from Friday. The first photo you saw was taken as I walked a few steps past the parking ramp.
I find solace in photography. It is one thing I can do that is my own, and in being a photographer I am a better person. I got into photography as a young teen, and over the years I have experimented with many different versions of the photographic process. I’m still quite partial to analog photography. I never grow tired of the magical experience of seeing an image appear as I rock the paper the developing tray.
Above is a photograph of a new project I have just published. Along with my love of analog photography, I also love being organized. I have looked many places, but have never found a journal that works for my photographic needs. This book has solved my problem. I now have a book that I can keep all of my exposure information in. Also, there is space to write notes about the location I’m shooting in as well as what is happening around me in the world at that moment. So far, I am loving it.
If you are interested in this journal made especially for people just like you, click the photo for more information.
I usually see this building from the other side. It caught my attention today for some reason. I think it is because it reminds me of living in Chicago, and how so many if the neighborhood buildings were brick with slightly unsturdy looking back porches.
I just had to post a pic of one of my favorite lunch spots. I go there often enough that they know me by name. Today they were playing my favorite album of all time, Kind of Blue (Miles Davis). That along with the good food and good people created a lunchtime trifecta.
