11/19/20 - Leaves on Slate
OK, so I'm heading out of my office bldg. around 4:30 yeseterday and it is of course raining because when I work in the office and have an hour commute and a long walk in from the parking lot it HAS to rain, right?!? I fumbled to get up my umbrella and pull my laptop pull case behind me. I was thinking about how I had no POTD, and I was late for an appt. with no hope of getting there in time. Sigh. But, in front of me was this really cool scene of wet leaves and slate. I was truly wondering if I could manage to pick up my laptop pull case and get down the stairs without falling. Suddenly it occurred to me that I should should take a picture. What?!? So, holding the umbrella over me, other people passing me by on the steps thinking I've lost it, etc. I take this. Now, honest, I can't hold still very well at all and the camera was telling me that if I didn't hold still it would be blurred. So I tried so hard not to breath or sway or move in anyway. You would think I'd have mastered that by now but no. Thankfully, when I looked last night, of the 8 or so shots I took this one was in focus enough to share. I cropped and tweaked slightly (sharpen and make it a tad more blue), and here you go. Boy was that a mouthful on no coffee yet......
I am just floored that the lock shot was so popular yesterday. Thank you all for making my day yet again. How exciting. It just makes me strive to want to bring you even better pictures!
As always, have a great day,
Time for coffee!
