Long Cool Shadow (in the Neighborhood)
Saturday 8 October 2016 — Category: Shooting
For the first few years after I started carrying a pocket camera with me on my daily neighborhood walks, photos from those walks, as well as photos taken at home, were placed together in the same annual albums: Neighborhood 2011, Neighborhood 2012 and Neighborhood 2013.
However, starting in 2014, I had so many photos from both the neighborhood and around the house that I had to split them into separate albums: Neighborhood 2014 & Homemade Images 2014 and Neighborhood 2015 & Homemade Images 2015.
Now, in 2016, I’m having the opposite problem. For some reason I have not felt any inspiration at all to take pictures on my daily walk. Perhaps it is because I’m so passionate about Portland and my McMenamins adventure instead. In addition, since last year most of my pictures taken at home have been in the kitchen as a wannabe gourmet chef.
So it wasn’t until 9/11 that I took my first 2016 neighborhood photo worth sharing. And it wasn’t until today, nearly a month later, that I even discovered it was still in my camera! Well, better late than never, as they say.
Because I have such a small number of non-kitchen home pictures and neighborhood photos this year, I have decided to recombine them back into a single album. Therefore, the photo to the right has found a home in the Homemade Images 2016 album. Although it was not taken at home, my house is in the neighborhood, and I am not going to make a new Neighborhood 2016 album for just one photo!
Anyway, I really like this picture of my shadow as I leaned on a roadside mailbox. As always, you can click on the image for a larger version. And now you have the longer-than-necessary story about why I put it in the Homemade Images 2016 album instead of the nonexistent Neighborhood 2016 album. Have a nice rest of the day!
