Observations in black and white

Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans - John Lennon / Allen Saunders


Well, “life” happens is not exactly the language I would use.  But life did indeed derail some of my plans over the last few months.  I’ve taken a break from writing and photography, and am just now returning to the fray.

The first order of business has been the editing of images taken during a cross-country road trip - all the way from California to New England last October.  October! That means I’ve been editing fall foliage images in April, which feels a little odd. In addition to the autumn landscape, the trip also provided ample opportunity for abstracts.  

But I’m starting with the smallest collection of all (just think of it as “carefully curated”), to ease myself gradually back into the swing of things.  Just a few observations in black and white, found across the miles from Route 66 to Vermont.
