In the beginning …

I got into photography about 10 years ago, after the newspaper I worked for cut a photographer position. I started taking a Canon G-10 on my rounds, taking mostly crash photos. Those can be challenging — especially at night or in other low-light conditions.

Every once in awhile, I’d experiment. Here’s an example of that — the front of a Tex-Mex restaurant across the street from the Sheriff’s Office in Ashland. I took it during my morning rounds. The soft light on the brightly painted building caught my eye.

A few more for the window series

I found a few more interesting windows on my Sunday morning trip to Fredericktown.

Saw this one from an alley — framed at the top by a catalpa tree. The crucifix in the window made me wonder about its significance to the person or persons inside.

This is ugly and I can’t imagine anyone wanting a print. However, this window in Butler is shrouded in weathered siding. Combined with the fake brick siding above, I thought it was an interesting combination of visual textures. Seen while gassing up en route to Fredericktown.
