Sun on us
I challenged myself to take photos in direct sun. I have a hard time seeing while shooting in the bright sun and am self taught so I just plug along and try to figure it out. I went up to Donkey Hill and hung out with the gang. I had one of those spells where I thought I was getting awesome shots but upon returning to my studio I was somewhat disappointed in the results. I have a new lens and am adjusting and learning - trying to challenge myself to take more landscape scenes and work with light more.
None of it matters in the end. It's the fact that at that moment, I felt inspired - inspired by light, animal, setting, a place I love - to photograph it. If I didn't, it still would have happened, but each photo is like a blessing or ode to that moment and my compassion for it. It's very non judgmental.
