Green and Blue...Because it's Been so Gray.

This is another one from the archives. I shot this last August.

I've been going out to shoot but have been totally uninspired lately. I know it won't last forever, but it is none the less frustrating.

I am not a fan of the kind of winter weather we've been having. Everything is flat, gray, and boring not to mention cold here right now. At least if it's going to be really cold and gray like it's been, please let it snow! Not a blizzard but something to make it interesting. We've had practically no snow even though every week they call for a storm or two. The storms fizzle or miss us altogether, but the cold, gray, flat, light stays and stays. I'm bored now.

To find something that I am interested in shooting or that I haven't already shot has not worked out at all lately. I have to drive too far to get out of my boring suburbia and I am just not finding the time to do that right now. When I do have the time to go looking, the light is at it's worst. So for the time being...sigh...I guess I'll try to find some more indoor stuff...boring! Or continue to search the archives...also boring.

Maybe this afternoon (Sunday as I write this) will bring some new inspiration. Earlier it looked like the light might be better later this afternoon. Although now, as I type this I can tell by the light coming through the window over my shoulder that the gray overcast is returning. Looking out the window, I see that it is back. I just checked the weather and it doesn't look good. Oh well...We'll see...Maybe tomorrow?
