Although I have nice photography equipment, I currently don’t have the means to pay for film, gas, blah blah blah. Eventually I will obtain the means to return on a course that makes a serious attempt to take meaningful images that have a respectable level of quality, but for now…I share this image taken with my phone. I don’t feel so bad. I see this view almost every day. I don’t need to scope out the right vantage point, apply filters, or wait for the right light…or play with development times..dodging or burning or cropping. This image captures what I find to be so beautiful about a Northwest winter day…in a very rough draft form.
