Wandering 166

I'm back in the streets! I'm a bit rusty but I'll get into the groove again. Summer light is harsh especially around noon when I take my lunch break. It is difficult for me to pull my camera out of my bag. Saw this pool of light reflected from the building across the street. I thought I'd hang around and see if I can get something going.

I took this image this morning on my way to work. The weather forecast calls for more storms heading to the Bay Area this week. Temperatures have been below normal compared to previous years. No wonder Boracay feels as if it happened so long ago when in fact, it had only been a month since we were on the beach.

Between working the job and the residency this past couple of months, I haven't been wandering around with my camera. I finally had the chance to do so this week. I think it is an important part my creative process. It is like a pianist doing finger exercises before mastering a piece. In my case, I am continually honing the way I see. I consider these images as my sketches. I will share a few more in the next postings.
