The heat wave we've been having this week finally broke when we got rain tonight. As a result I was limited in what I could shoot outdoors. But I recalled an exercise in Freeman Patterson's book 'Photography and the Art of Seeing' in which you are to take 20 steps out of your front door, draw an imaginary 20' circle, and make 20 photos within that circle. So, since I couldn't go out in the rain, I looked around from my front porch to see what I could shoot. I managed 23 photos, but I'll just post the one below, and save the others for another day.
NOTE: we are leaving on a family vacation tomorrow. I'm pretty sure there will be running water and electricity, but I'm not sure whether there will be any sort of internet access. So if you don't see any posts after tonight, then you'll know there isn't and I'll be back in a week. I will have my camera, of course, and will make photos each day - I'll have to catch up on posting them when we return if there's no internet access. And I'll catch up with all of you then too. Have a great week!
