The 2012 Countdown: Day 9

“There are really no bad days for photography…
just different degrees of good.”

The past two days have been overcast, damp and chilly – pretty typical for early December in my little corner of the world.

There was no golden morning light; no dramatic clouds or bright blue sky. No intriguing shadows.

Yesterday, I stayed home and shot indoors (with minimal success).

Today, I went out anyway, racing to stay ahead of the coming rain. And on a day with little to recommend it, I studied forms and texture and lines; the weight and heft of concrete.

Even with all that was lacking, it was still a good day for photography.

  1. These are great Brenda–excellent industrial grittiness you’ve captured while at the same time examining the clean lines and geometrics of our urban world

  2. If these images are any indication, it was quite a successful day. Great eye. Great processing. Great quote.
    That first image has a richness of lines–curves, horizontals, verticals, diagonals. And, they are created by different materials. Wonderful, wonderful.
    The second image feels solid, as if it could hold up something heavy.

  3. A wonderful black and white day!

  4. I have to say – I can’t agree more with the quotation here. So true. No bad days. Only different!

  5. I’m catching up with your posts after being away from the computer for a week….good for you for finding subjects to photograph in spite of the weather and light. A perfect quote! Well done, Brenda!

  6. There is so much going on in these pictures — such depth and richness.

I greatly appreciate your comments!
