It takes two……

It takes two days, weeks, months, etc. to realize what you want to do. It takes a breath…..or two, to not always be judgmental and opinionated. It takes two years or decades to figure out that not everything needs to be rationalized.

When I hit August and see the colors change I feel the inspiration taking a break too. At least a month or two. Light changes though. That slightly different angle how light illuminates subjects can completely change how I perceive things. Without explanation and hesitation I start to see and feel images again.

The change of the season nearing the end of the year is introduced with longer and deeper shadows. Prettier light too. Just observe the leaves and how light comes filtered through. That light my friend, is what photography is all about. Don’t be bothered with genres and gear, just enjoy that light.

Missing fall

2010, Photography


When being occupied with daily stuff, disturbances, and work you sometimes forget what happens around you.

The autumn seems already halfway. Most of the trees lost their leafs.

And I am surprised how quickly this year passes by.

I have lost many moments this fall. Kind of feels like I missed this season at all.
