Project 52: The Courthouse
There are good and bad things about starting a weekly photography project in January – in the heart of an Ohio winter.
The good: It may be winter in Ohio but its the beginning of the project and your enthusiasm is high, so you brave the winter weather with equanimity.
The bad: its winter in Ohio. And so, you are out there in the bitter winter winds, hands burning with cold, wrapped up like an Eskimo, tramping around in snow up to your boot tops. Most days, the light is terrible, with flat white skies and flying snowflakes, obscuring your subject.
But you are only 8 weeks in and down the road you know that spring will come and the light will go soft and the courthouse will be surrounded with the pale green of new growth.
And you’ll be there to capture it all.
Here are my favorite images from weeks 5 through 8.
