365 Project: Day 133

Day 133

Day 133. Just a simple shot today, to remind me to appreciate the simple things, like living in a place where the sky lights up with colours like a canvas, full of textures, contrasts, details.  It does this so often, it almost seems normal, and from where I live (the side of a hill), the sky is just so damn big, I think I can see forever. I probably can.

Day 114

Day 114… hard to believe we are here, already!

Also, I’m home! I have been away for a couple of weeks now, but am now home, sitting at my familiar computer, loving the two monitors that allow me to actually run LR4 properly. Apologies to those people who have taken the time to view, like, and comment on my work – I really really do appreciate your support (which keeps me motivated, to be honest!) and will try my hardest to catch up in the days to come.  Today’s shot is a simple one, just a contemplative evening looking out to sea. Easy to do when you live where I do… on this particular evening, I stood taking photos, listening as the local pipe and drum band rehearsed, watching the various groups of people on the beach, walking on the boardwalk, glancing out to sea at the pastel colours of sunset… a lovely feeling of calm, of connection, of community.

This was taken on the D700 (for a change!), with the Lensbaby Edge 80. Just in case you are interested. Oh, and two other mostly irrelevant pieces of information – 1) I’ve decided to do away with the square brackets (I never really knew why I was using them); and 2) I’ve finally remembered to update my watermark for the new year. I know, world-changing stuff, right??
