grey-ness

20121208_iPhone_9215

We’ve been flirting with rain.  The wintertime landscape is clouds and pale light, the grey skeletons of trees, the dull gold of winter fields.  Today the temperatures dropped, and it finally feels a little bit like winter.

It must be the light on days like these, but I love riding home in the late afternoon in the fading grey-ness.  It is windless and silent.  And  I feel like I have fallen into some vintage photo, the colors are so subdued – grey, buff, steel blue and hints of ivory and amber.  Almost monochrome.  (With the exception of my very red, red bicycle, of course.)

My “good” cameras have been left at home on these rain-risk days … for now, just some of the iPhone snaps.

    You do a damn good job without the “good” camera.

    I love the crop on the pic of the bike against the fence. I also appreciate the fact you kept a sliver of the road in the foreground. It grounds the picture and provides a series of horizontal lines…. road, grass, fence, trees, sky… I’m sure you don’t even consider these technical elements, as you truly have an artistic eye. (jealous). Keep shooting! My family enjoys your blog very much.

      Thank you Alex … I always appreciate the insight in your comments; the things you see (that yes, I really don’t think about) are most interesting, and help me see aspects I didn’t before. Grateful. And thank you. Happy holidays to you and your family.
