Something Different

I post mostly nature images here so this is definitely something different but it is a picture of the gas station near my house. I was pumping gas one night at dusk after going on a picture walk, so I had my camera with me, and the building just looked kind of neat to me in the fading light with it’s neon lights in contrast with the approaching shadows. So I grabbed my camera and fired off 2-3 shots, getting the composition I liked best.

I imagined the clerk inside thought I was casing the joint or something equally as strange. I felt lucky I caught the moment with no cars parked in front of the store because I feel that would have ruined the shot.

I turned to my right after that and saw another picture opportunity as the sky was coloring so beautifully over the uhaul trucks the station rented out, so I took another unusual shot.

I took both of these with my Sony A68 and edited in Capture One.

Mysterious Building

Spotted this building on the back part of the high school property. I’m thinking maybe they work on the busses here or store maintenance or lawn equipment. Things like that. Any other guesses?

Closed the Door (a Monochrome Monday)

I closed the door on my portrait photography business this summer. I feel bad turning people away, but it just got to be too stressful taking pictures for other people. Doing it for money took all the joy out of it. Lol. I’ll still do stuff for fun for my own family. I like knowing the only person I have to please is myself and also, nature is really my favorite subject.
