09 Feb Winter Light

It’s been a very, very long and harsh winter in Minnesota… Several days of dangerous temperatures, turning into weeks. I can’t tell you how tired we all are of dealing with this. Having to worry about your eye lashes freezing shut as soon as you step outside the door gets old very quickly… So what is a photographer to do? Wait for the warmer days? Absolutely not! The visual muscles would weaken and deteriorate. You need to exercise them on a daily basis. I recently introduced you to ‘Photo antiquing’ in this post. I’ve visited a few more antique shops since then. But that’s not the only way I keep my creative soul happy between trips and projects. I also chase light and textures

I was visiting an artist studio for a purchase recently, but it was closed. Actually the entire building was deserted. The extreme cold tends to keep people inside. Not me… I can’t stay in for long, I go stir crazy!

Of course, I had my camera with me and I walked up the few floors of the old factory building and played with light for a few minutes. It wasn’t much, but enough to get a few warm images on a very cold day…

It’s this cold here…
