Disappointingly, a travel day and a spent battery offered no photographs along the drive. Furthermore, the drain of driving zapped any inspiration for content, but the sky looked like it might lead to a colorful sunset. The scene was typically relaxing, but the only creative 'slant' I could create was the diagonal, not the aftermath of a tipsy endeavor, but simply a different look at the setting sun.

As many photographers would agree, the daily shots offer a chance to see life through different lenses...with considerable awe and wonder, both at the capture and the processing points. Its therapeutic nature has become an expectation, but sometimes the 'pressure' of providing a '365' becomes a bit routine and uninspired. Then, when you least expect it, the crazy and zany ideas take now looks a bit like a modern abstract painting to me. 4th Ave N & Gulf of Mexico, Naples, FL


  1. You are does look like an abstract painting! I like all the different colours in it.

  2. Interesting angle - it's important to get out of the box sometimes.

  3. I really like this angle. It caught my eye right away. It goes to show that sometimes those last minute crazy ideas can make for great pics.
