Today’s early morning was a sodden soggy mess. The rain was pelting down so hard that even in bed with the windows closed tightly, the rain’s steady, strangely soothing hiss could easily be heard over the hum of the ceiling fan.
A lovely form of meditation could be achieved by just lying still and listening.
Only recently have I begun to have more faith in shooting wider. My Ricoh GR has an excellent 28mm lens but because it also has an ASPC sensor, I have tended to crop a lot of my photographs since, even cropped, there is enough detail left in what remains. Lately it seems my vision can take in and use more elements on the edges of the photo. This is kind of a photograph breakthrough for me.
I was on my way back from trying to take a decent photograph of a new Blue Bottle coffee bar that had just opened in the financial district here in Boston. The area where it was located had lots of angles and what I thought were good places for a wide angle composition but all the shots I took were pretty lousy.

Pretty girls and flowers is a hard combination to beat.

It was foggy today as we cruised down this beautiful stretch of California coastline. The cool gentle air gave the edge of the sea a meditative quality.
There you have it. What more is there to say?
