A bout of writer’s block dragging you down? Don’t let it!
Nothing helps me beat the ol’ Block, like photography (except maybe hiking…but that’s for another post!); specifically landscape photography, but every now and again, I like to mix things up!
So, drop and give me 250!

Can you smell the rain drying into the pavement? Distant gasoline vapors, tar, wet bricks and asphalt? In this brief flash of setting sun, and swirling clouds– can you feel the humidity on your skin? Taste the dissipating storm, like ether on your tongue? Is there any wind? Is it summer, or spring? Does a light, damp breeze rifle through these empty buildings?
What do you feel?
Is that man on the water-tower, friend, or foe? Does he wave to you, jeer at you, or ignore you altogether? Can you hear the blare of car horns, planes overhead, tires screeching, men and women shouting, dogs barking, trucks honking…or is it quiet? Nothing but crickets chirping, sparrows singing, and people whispering as they pass?
Get to it!
