Week of Randomness: Tracery

This image is the perfect one to end the Week of Randomness. Here’s why:

  1. On trip to England last year, we decided to drive from our rental cottage over to Oxford.
  2. The traffic was terrible, and we got tired of not getting anywhere.
  3. So we took the first turn we came to.
  4. And ended up in Cirencester.
  5. Where we spotted a steeple and then (somehow!) a car park that was adjacent.
  6. And right there, inside the church, is where we ran into some friends from Texas.
  7. Who had stepped into the church on a whim.
  8. Random!

(Never made it to Oxford. We’ll do that on the next trip. Maybe.)

Week of Randomness: …and so the day begins

Hello, and welcome to day three in the Week of Randomness!

Of course, if you’ve been here very long you’ve probably figured out that my main photographic principal is to look around back.

Another one (that I should use a lot more often) is to get there early.

Getting there early – while the vendors were still setting up – was how I was able to get a people-less shot of the Pike Place Market in Seattle.

Week of Randomness: Almost Nothing

Santa Rosa, New Mexico, is one of my favorite subjects. It’s got a very nice array of falling-down buildings and out-of-businesses and interesting cemeteries.

On this particular visit, it also had birds. Lots and lots of them, all flying at once from under the canopy at an abandoned gas station. I made quite a few attempts to catch them in flight, and there was nothing good about any of them.

When I was working on my posts for the Week of Randomness, though, this minimalist image caught my attention.
