It was given to us a couple of Christmases ago by one of my favorite neighbors. . . full of beautiful cuttings, of course.
I had several compositions for this framed up before I took this one, but none really did much for me. And according to my made up rules for this project – One Shot Only. No second chances.
In theory it is designed to force me to compose better photos instead of relying on the digital format which allows us to take as many photos as possible without any consequences. That tends to make me complacent and not really pay attention. I grew up on film where every frame essentially cost us money – so we had to make sure the photo was worth taking before we took the picture.
I was actually looking for inspiration for a logo I have to design for work, but kept getting distracted by some cool stuff. So I thought I’d include a couple of them for the heck of it.
LINE UP HERE: This is Clumpies Ice Cream shop. Great ice cream.
I never did find any relevant logo inspiration; but I did get some air and a few good shots.
I saw this girl sweeping the entrance to Sugar’s Ribs today and instantly knew she’d be my Snapshot of the Day. But I did not want her to go back inside before I got her photo, so I quickly did a meter reading for the shade and then lifted my camera and shot. I had no idea what I got. I just lucked up getting those two people reflected in the door’s window.
Sugar’s has great food. My husband and I have had several date nights there.
