Well, indeed, I’ve been sick as a dog the past three days. Not sick as “my dog”, heh, he’s doing just fine
It’s been snowing heavily for the past three days, and our usual walking path was deep in snow, which would have made for great pictures opportunities with the most tiny weenie bit of sun but…. No dice. The sky remained stubbornly withish grey, low, and loaded with more snow to come. I decided to bring the camera along anyway, the puppy now being manageable enough that I don’t have to worry and fuss about him full time.
First attempt with the kit zoom (18-55)
So since the zoom wasn’t inspiring so much, I went back today packing a manual focus lens, since I’ve been using those on NEX from day one. While there’s nothing to write home about, it does give me a more faithful image of how I felt while there.
Then I reached that overhead highway bridge that always just awes me. The thing is humongous, took a couple of years to get together, and I fine its line very, very appealing.
Because of the curvy shape there are a lot of different interesting angles to shoot if from, and I keep on experimenting.
A couple of secondary roads ramp up to the main bridge. This road sign has had a life accident obviously that someone decided to make fun of. I like it. Sort of like a friendly Blair Witch like sight.
Just for the record, let it be known that there are exception to my snow aversion. For instance, Finland :
But still, I’ll always like my riverside in kinder weather conditions, when it’s all warm and hazy and seems stuck in childhood perfection, like this
So that’s what a severe cold does to me, go all feverish and outta my mind and posting landscape shots. Go figure…
