October 15: As a photographer, you are attracted to light. You notice how things are lit -- especially if the lighting is dramatic. On Wednesday morning, as I was cleaning in the warehouse, I kept noticing this beat up old trash can that I had sitting in the open doorway, as the early morning sun shone on it.
I really have no other explanation as to why I took this picture. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
It's a good thing this year is almost up...
October 16: Farmington Pond. I was scouting locations for Saturday, when I would be taking engagement pictures for my brother-in-law, and his soon-to-be-fiance.
Which brings us to...
I took this shot on Main Street in Bountiful, Utah. It's the side of an old, abandoned welding building. We could see this door from several blocks away. I love the character of the wall surrounding the doorway, and the contrast of the red door against the stark white wall.
Actually, from a distance, it looked like there were steps in front of the door. Once we got there however, we realized that not only were there no steps, but the doorway was about four feet off the ground, with a ledge of about four inches to stand on. But Andrew and Michelle are troopers (not to mention YOUNG), and hopped right up.
I love this shot.
On our way back from viewing the Autumn colors up Meuller Park Canyon, we passed by the temple, and I shot it against the sinking sun. I like the way the building is in silhouette, but the statue on the spire is lit up (I told you photographers like dramatic lighting.)
Well, it's been a couple of weeks since I included a good weed shot.
