On the way home from work
I’m trying to get back in the habit of carrying my camera with me when I go to work. My photography always falls off during the winter but it feels like this year it’s worse than usual, and I really want to return to taking pictures just for the sake of the photos.
Today I was pretty late coming home from work, because we had a release party. On the way home, the weather was gorgeous, the light…well, frankly, the light was mediocre, but I felt like taking pictures anyway.
When the weather is good, and I’m not in a hurry, I take a roundabout route home. It goes down Assiniboine Avenue, through the Forks, over both the Assiniboine and Red rivers, and through the St. Boniface hospital campus. It’s a great ride, and full of places to stop and enjoy the view.
One of the perennial problems I have is not doing anything with my pictures after I take them. Posting pictures was one of the original goals of this blog, though, so this seems like the perfect venue to use.
I have no idea if anyone actually reads this thing :-). Still, putting pictures up makes me feel like I’m doing something, and gives me motivation to unload my camera and pick through my shots at the end of the day.
