A Solitary Walk (Playing with Angle and Light: Three Street Scenes)
I like to walk; it clears my head. When I'm on a bike I have to pay attention to my surroundings but when I walk I can do just that...walk. Tonight I had some thoughts that were troubling me so I thought I'd go for a brisk walk on this chilly (32F/0C) and wet February night...OK, I stopped at a local tavern for a couple beers also (that helps clear my head, too...or maybe it clouds it, whatever). Anyhow, and as usual, I brought a camera with me. I also had my small tripod...in order to get clear pictures at night it's essential my hand doesn't shake. What's interesting is the angle at which these photos were taken...about 10 in./25cm. off the ground. The tripod I use I originally purchased to use on my bike, but tonight I was walking. It gives it an interesting perspective, I think. Anyhow, the walk was good...and the beers were better. As usual, click any photo for a larger view.
