It took me not even five minutes, but I was asking myself if this was the best use of time in the morning, just before going to work? I think it was.
I’ve come to appreciate more and more the shifting palette of the sky outside my studio window, and all I need to do is open the window and shoot.
This particular morning was cold and there was some snow on the window. I left it closed, and for a few minutes, I tried to capture the near and far, the cold and warm, the blurred and the sharp. Ice and fire. I tried to focus on the one and on the other, doing both justice.
My state of mind was just this: to observe two opposites and try to capture them, individually and as a whole.
Oh, and did I mention, I thought I saw some silver and gold there too…
So, what do you see here? What state of mind does this put you into?
