Only 65 more days of this weird, not-so-good year left, yay.

Cold values

I keep finding myself drawn to blue values and cold palettes without meaning to lately. See what I mean?

Crazy

Crazy about the colors I caught in this photo. It was such a dark, overcast day full of downpours so capturing this makes getting soaked pretty worth it.

How’s your week going, folks?

Update: Like this photo? Now it’s available as a matted archival print here in my Etsy shop.

Feeling a blue today, one way or the other…Ready to move on to a cold, snowy winter.

Could do with a little rain on this overcast autumn day…

Into the Void

22/10/2013 — Leave a comment

The autumn weather snapped finally, a pleasant enough change, but not so great for outdoor swimming. Instead, I’ve been enjoying the gym indoors for the last few weeks, switching things up and cranking the tunes while grinding away on equipment. It feels great (if exhausting) and allows me the same time to reflect that I get out of swimming (even if I miss out on the wind and sun on my arms).

But I found a solution to ease the indoor transition— a new playlist to keep myself happy and focused while kicking my butt at the gym. And while listening to this new playlist, a track came on that propelled me back in time. Back to brisk autumn weather in Göteborg and catching the morning train to get away to Stockholm for the weekend. This song brings it all back:

How about you? Do any songs propel you back in time or take you some place else? Which song(s) and where does it take you?

Here are a few more from the rainy days last week. Really liking the subtle golds and blues and the warm tones of the rain drops.

Hope everyone’s week has gotten off to a good start. Any plans this week, guys?

Palette

There’s something about this photo, I don’t know what it is. I guess it’s the colors; their combination and proportions. Perhaps they remind me of Vincent Van Gogh’s work while he was in Arles. One of his variations of Augustine Roulin as ‘La Berceuse‘ (1, 2,3, 4)? Or maybe Crab on its back?’Or maybe one of his self-portraits? Maybe I’m completely off base with Van Gogh. Perhaps its Little Jerry from Sesame street? I don’t know, what do you guys think? Does this color palette remind you of anything? Just curious.

Blur

The flash of colors in these outakes make me think of blue and yellow macaws flapping by. There used to be an antique store by the harbor with such a parrot who greeted visitors at the door. These days, the shop has moved to Maine and the parrot is now a green wing, but I’m sure it’s still a treasure trove of dusty wonders.

Wet Rainbow

Pleasantly surprised this shot came out. At this point in the afternoon, it was raining so hard I was having trouble seeing and had to keep wiping off my lens.

Soaked

Last week we finally got some much needed rain. So that meant a few things for me: working out inside and spending hours in the rain with my camera. It sounds nuts, I know, but putting up with the wet weather is worth it when you get shots like this:

Looking forward to sharing more of these with you over the next few days. How about you? What have you guys been working on lately?
