365 Days of Photography with Day Number 97-98…

These are the After Hours. Pay attention. Notice the switch that turned off the stars and catapulted that governing light of night. Clear drafts greet your lungs cold. You’re spying through a collection of impressions stretched in uneven shadows while ambiance plays on your minds eye. 

And coffees nearby. Always.

For Dennis. Thanks.

When Lightning Strikes

©LS1First flash I’ve captured. Loud claps and stuffy air. Staticky power lines, with echoes booming between boxcars. I was pretty fortunate, better yet privileged, in dodging a wall of showers nearby.

©LS2This was what I saw it before it saw me. Sure, timing plays a role. But it’s the knowing with doses of confidence, and those ingredients coupled with the elements made me a very happy guy. My first real thought, “Only if this was the farm truck. Zane would love it.”

©LS3When my shutter opened, I turned my head. A bright flash brought me back around. I was going to delete it, but decided against.

©LS6Moving the frame in time for flash and crack against humidity.

LS4This wasn’t entirely planned. It’s a little fuzzy, however I kept it.

LS5Totally went that route. B&W. This was also a toss up.

All Terrain

©SC4 copyAll terrain. There’s tire marks on this sculpture. Wide tire marks. Like, you know, from a mountain bike. I’d love to see what they’re doing off of this. And it used to be BMX.
