Thematic Photographic 339 - Aged

Bricks in the sun
Ingersoll, ON
June 2015
As I hinted in a recent entry, I've been carrying my DSLR with me again. Yes, it's heavy, and yes, it gets in the way no matter what I'm doing. But it gets me back to shooting in a way that no smartphone can ever match.

On this bright summer morning, I pointed my lens out the window of my train as we stopped in a small town on the way to Toronto. I was headed to Canada's largest city to shoot a television segment, and taking a few minutes away from reviewing my notes to grab some pixels was just what my mind needed.

I had forgotten how cathartic lens therapy can be, and despite the annoyance factor of dragging my equipment around, being able to bring home images like this makes it worth it. And then some.

Your turn: This week's Thematic theme is Aged. If it looks old, feels old, or just reminds you of something that's old, please share it. Pop the photo onto your blog or website, then leave a comment here letting everyone know where to find it. Visit other participants and feel free to ask friends to join in, too. Have more than one photo to share? We encourage multiple-postings: The more the merrier. Here's more background on how Thematic works. Thank you for keeping the photographic light alive!

Oh yes, this is just my style. I like the corner capture, it offers a sense of wonder, what goes on behind those lovely windows? Here's mine

"If it looks old, feels old" This was before I discovered your Thematic Photographic Carmi but I could've done a self portrait for this one...
