Snow bug zapper.

POW#0126: Sunrise

Through the trees in the early, freezing cold morning. Most of the color comes after the fact, from adjusting the color temperature to one more suited to the emotional feeling of the moment.

The real photo is blue. Just... just blue.

So cold.

The angle is a commentary on angles.

And this post is a post.

This photo is similar to one I took some time earlier, only instead of mountains the background is buildings.

Did I do it on purpose? Maybe. As a commentary on purpose.

On a fence in the woods. I'd posted a photo of another padlock on a fence in the woods some time back. Same spot. Same fence. Different lock. Maybe they cut the old one off, maybe the person with the key took it. Either way, I'll head back one day and see if there's a third lock.

Taken while out for a so late it was early morning night drive through the industrial area. All sorts of good stuff to be found there, but only at night I find. During the day there are too many people around, too many vehicles. But at night that's when so many of the places actually come to life. Workers and trucks and forklifts and machinery.

Good old Eighth Avenue Place, one of my favourite spots to take architecture shots. Took this one from about four or five blocks away, across the tracks from a pedestrian underpass. Tilt camera slightly to one side, and away we go.

Sometimes you just gotta' stop and smell the roses. Stop and listen to nothing. Stop and look up. There's a lot of crazy stuff out there, and some pretty cool stuff. And some hollow stuff masquerading as "art" but ignore the man behind the curtain.

POW#0196: Lost Car Woods
       
     
POW#0196: Lost Car Woods

A ruined car in the woods. We're talking "middle of the woods" woods. Not just off to the side. Not in a corner. In the middle of a wooded area, where someone either weaved it through trees, or dumped it there a LONG time ago. Along with a couple other cars. Quite the strange sight.

POW#0197: Night Tower
       
     
POW#0197: Night Tower

It's gritty. It's dark. It's a little bit purple. It's a skyscraper at night, and somewhere up there a superhero is getting ready to leap off and plummet to the ground before battling crime.

If his cape deploys properly.

Otherwise the janitor is going to have a bad morning.

That's some fresh gnar gnar.

Wait, that's snowboarding. Have I made this joke before? I have seriously no idea anymore.

Just in time for fall. And by fall I mean winter, because it's probably already snowing in half the place and the pumpkins have snow hats. So enjoy this photo as a reminder of that wonderful two or three days.

I may or may not have tripped while out taking shots one day. I may or may not have decided to take a photo while lying on the ground.

No ma'am, I am fine thank you, keep walking. Nothing to see here.

It's so realistic you can almost touch your screen and leave your dirty fingerprints all over it you scrub.

Nothing says "fun" like setting off fireworks in a crowded intersection.

Oh look, the Police are here. 

Didn't see THAT coming.

It combines several things that make a photo good, into a single photo that is at best "acceptable." Still, I like it, so here you go. Maybe you'll like it too.

Whenever I see rapids my first impulse is to start chucking shit in to see where it comes out.

Like, if it's not nailed down, it's going in the rapids. Sticks? Rapids. Phone? Rapids.

People smaller than me?

Yep, that's the rapids.

You ever start making smores and next thing you know you're just eating chocolate while burning marshmallows? Yeah, I can't remember the last time I actually ATE smores. But I can remember the last time I stared deep into the crimson flames as they washed across the shores of molten sugar, charring them into a crisp oblivion. I've seen things, man.
