Hello and welome to My View for Monday, May 25, 2009.
Happy Memorial Day to all of you celebrating this day in the USA.
It’s been almost a month since I posted anything to My View. I appreciate your patience and your support while I was so very busy with teaching and with The Mindful Eye.
Last Thursday, I returned home to Atlanta after two months on the road, except for one stretch of 7 days and a couple of other days. It’s been an amazing two months and I’m not sure that I can describe all the things that have happened accurately — or that I’ll even try. What I will do is to post as many images as I can from the extended road trip and talk about those. I started posting some images from this marathon road trip on the two previous posts to My View.
This image is one that I took after the end of the absolutely amazing Next Step Workshop in Savannah that was held from March 22 – 28. Every day during the abnormally cool week-long workshop, dark clouds loomed and rain threatened. But, it held off — until the Saturday evening after the workshop ended. And, then — it rained, and rained, and rained. Rained so that streets of Savannah flooded.
Today’s image was taken on Sunday night after the workshop from the upstairs dining porch of Fiddler’s Crab House down on River Street. The fantastic photographer and photography teacher with whom I work, Craig Tanner, and I had stayed over in Savannah for a few days in order to get some work done for The Mindful Eye. It had been storming for most of the day that Sunday, but the rain slacked off enough for a few hours so that we could walk from our hotel down to River Street for dinner. As we were waiting for dinner to be served, I noticed all the lights and colors reflecting from a wet River Street.
As always, your comments and critiques are most welcome.
