I just can't help it...

I had to go out in the snow, in the sun, with a camera.
Like so many other people, I find it fascinating. Snow transforms it all, in this case, a rather grey and dull office building park into a winter 'wonderland'.

But once I was out, I realized there wasn't much to be done. It all looks breathtaking, but it's still an office building park. And suddenly I was taken back to my student years where the assignment was to 'go out and take pictures'. It's a challenge, to look past the obvious. Try to change the angle, get on your knees, shoot 'from the hip'... It's easy of course, breathtaking places bring the most amazing landscape pictures. But try and look at what you have, close to you and try to make it amazing/surprising/new...

With the limited time and space I had, I only found this branch from a plant bathing in the sun, and loved it's shadow. Not original, I know, but I guess I was just feeling like that plant, cold but enjoying the warmth of the sun.
