Three days ago I didn’t know I would be doing this. It all began while Mary was away babysitting her two grandsons…my chores were essentially done…and I had a lot of time on my hands. So I ventured out into Mary’s yard with my self-assignment of…take 15 photos in 15 minutes within a circle radius of 100 feet.
Today is my third day with the same assignment. This time all the photo were taken of/on my 1986 Ford Bronco II. I think these photos do a good job of illustrating how a photographer sees things that people who are not into photography miss as they walk through the world.
Reflections have always been a favorite subject of photographers…and I found a bunch. I urge you to click upon these 15 photos that I took in 15 minutes so that you may see them in their larger view…
It’s kind of unusual for me to have a lot of free time on my hands. I know I’m retired, but generally I’m on the go, places to see, people to meet, cleaning, preventative maintenance on both of our vehicles, a good book to read, etc… So, in the future, when I find myself in this mode…when finding something to write about for a daily Blog entry…that problem has been solved. I’ll just assign myself another 15 minute photography assignment and viola!…another blog entry.
I just love being a photographer and a full-time RVer. What a lucky guy I am!
13 days until my departure to the sunny and warm south land. Towards that departure date yesterday I drained, flushed and re-filled the hot water heater on the motorhome. We also started loading basic supplies aboard.
