I’m awfully exhausted (but I predicted an exhausting week with my schedule) for some reason so my photo was done quickly, however, I did scout for a subject. I was trying to work quickly because I was already losing what little light there was in this state. Winter is always so dark and drab. Even when the sun is out it’s just an obnoxious depressing feeling. I want to shoot stairs but there really aren’t any architecturally cool ones in my town. There are some apartments that are pretty old so I guess I’m going to be the designated random person that walks in, shoot with a cell phone and walks out.
I choose this one particular because I wanted to be mindful of the grid on my smartphone’s camera app. This building looks like it could invitingly eat a person even during the summer but when it’s dreary out it looks more like a ‘nope’ situation. The light in the lower left corner of the building makes you wonder who or what is there. This structure is actually an assisted living facility that is under new management for the 5th time in 7 years that I’ve lived here. There’s got to be a reason but it’s almost like everyone signed a gag order.
I encourage you to do something that helps you be creative today. If I can get out there and try so can you. Even if it means taping 2 toothpicks together and calling it a house. Happy Wednesday Y’all!
