Neglect

I have a love for old, neglected buildings; particularly like the one I’ve captured below because it’s still being used by the place that owns it.  It’s packed with what looks like junk, but really, is the spare and often expensive parts taken from old airplanes that are kept and lovingly worked on in the beautifully maintained hangers just out of frame.

There are so many people who pass this building by and shake their heads, somehow offended by it’s lack of perfection.  I don’t understand that at all.  Picture perfect lines become boring after a while.  Sometimes it’s nice to let your eyes glide over something with more texture and life than you can actually take in though a single glance.

I apply that thought to human beings too….even more so.

Sunrise

I am having so much fun with my new camera.  The telephoto lens I picked up has made taking photos, which I loved before, the most relaxing and fulfilling activity I could have ever imagined.  This weekend I got up with the sun and captured some beautiful sunrise shots.  Nothing fancy, little editing aside from a bit of light and contrast adjustment and all the beauty nature has to offer, one moment captured in time.
