Walking at Work – Week 21
I needed a bit of redemption after last week’s pitiful showing. As a result, I spent a good bit more time in the morning and wandered back to some areas on Broad Street that I’d been neglecting. A random high school tour group was coming through our building. I got the chance to divert them into the maker space area. It probably ruined their entire schedule but they had a blast.

The background makes this more interesting but the expressions make the shot. A different expression and interesting contrasts and shadows. I like pets looking out windows. I’ve taken a great many shots of this cathedral. This is one that finally felt interesting and a little different. I was on a porch rather than on the sidewalk which gave me a very different angle. I’ve taken this shot […]
