The Year 2021: Pink and White

This month has been pretty slow, enjoyably so! Pink and White the colors that flow.

If not for my drone and camera I don’t think I would have left my house at all. I’ve been clicking away since the holiday.

Also, I just realized the last two sentences rhymed. I didn’t do that deliberately, I’m not lying.

I truly believe having hobbies and a creative outlet can get one through most anything. Boredom, specifically boredom during a pandemic can drive one mad. Beyond flying my drone and snapping photos I’ve picked up a few other hobbies as well: planting, washing the dishes (yes this is a hobby when done right) and checking the stock market daily (it’s compulsion — but hey it keeps me busy)

Mood: White

I’ve always been a fan of winter. While most people slip into spells of melancholy it truly awakens me. The contrast of a cloudy sky, explosive sunsets and snow falling — things I live for!

I spent late December in the snow … a-lot! I drove twice in a week to Lone Pine after hearing of an epic snow dump on the usually dry boulders. I lucked out with the light as there was a full moon. Full moon snowscapes make for amazing photos.

Upon my return to the city I was treated to even more beauty. A rare photo by many estimations is the juxtaposition of the moon rising over the San Gabriel Mountains that frame Downtown Los Angeles. Luckily, the timing was propitious and I was able to nail the shot!

Mood: Pink

The start of the year has been met with a flurry of spectacular sunsets! It’s like the photography god’s timed this perfectly for Los Angeles. A blessing considering all that’s going on in the city 😞

I’ve been knee deep in work — yeah, I’ve been getting back into the groove of workaholism. The lockdown has lent itself nicely to this compulsion to accumulate more and spend most of my waking hours in front a computer screen. Oh well… cest la vie. At least I get to partake in my hobbies once the sun sets.

Fade to Blue

The future is looking brighter by the day but relative brightness doesn’t negate all the darkness.  I live for the cold and dreary but I think coming blue bird skies and warmer days will feel a lot better — at which point I’ll put the camera down and take it all in… one breath at a time.
