When the Universe Calls... Part Two

Yesterday I wrote about an interesting encounter I had while taking pictures at lunch. That was part one of the story, which you can read about here. This is part two.

When the Universe Calls...

You answer.

I was out shooting pictures at lunch today, head down, focused on the task at hand and ignoring all the background chatter. Jen was with me but I could sense that someone else was hovering near.

I tend to ignore the curious observers for the most part, especially the "hey buddy, what are yah shooting?!?" calls from across the street. It's not that I mean to be rude but I am out there concentrating on the task and usually with limited time. If there's a break in the action I am usually happy to engage in friendly chatter.

Making Lemonade...

How does that old saying go? I think it's something like, when life gives you lemons make lemonade. Tonight I made some "lemonade".

Feeling Blue

I just returned from a one week visit to New York City, which included a one day workshop with Joe McNally in Dobbs Ferry, NY. Both the vacation and the workshop were amazing. But now I'm back in my home base of Calgary and I am truly missing the vibrance and excitement of the big city. I'm feeling a little blue.

Last night was my first 365 shot outside of NY in over a week. I didn't have a lot in the tank but I knew it had to be flash and I knew I needed some colour. This is what I ended up with.
