It has been a quiet busy week exploring the frontier out here in New Jersey.
The weather has been weird for this time of year, temperatures fluctuating wildly. It been wet at times, but not too cold. I have not pulled out my big coat for the year, it feels weird.
My work-life balance has been a little off and a little disruptive. It seems like my day job is going through a bit of a paradigm shift. It’s made things uneasy on most days. After the 12th hour of either email are phone conversations, a bit of mental exhaustion slowly fades in. It is a time where I just have to learn to adapt, attempt to be a finer person, do what’s necessary.
I have not been wandering around much with my camera during the workweek. Calls start earlier lately, and my camera stays on my wrist while I’m either responding to a message. It makes long for the weekend more.
Recently an old lens fell into my world. On Sunday morning, after a rain, I took it out for a test on my Sony a7. It was a screw mount lens, and the adapter I had for it was a bit too big. It made this lens a fascinating macro ish lens. It was fun figuring it out in the quiet next to a lake.
Again this was a week, fueled by coffee. Those quiet moments I found, for a sip, here and there, were helpful.
These images, from my week of photography, describe to you and explain the light, places, textures, characters I’ve visually observed in my travels. If you can spare a little of your time and share in the wonders, I have seen.
