fence pass

I was out taking photographs today. I’m trying to make it a habit to keep the camera on my all the time. You never know when you see something, you’d like to capture. This fence caught me. Its not a simple one plank fence but rather two planks joined in between by plank that runs across. It could make the best setup for taking macros of figures and lego pieces.

looking up

Trying to envision what sitting under a tree is like. If you’ve never done it, here is your chance.

rain cloth

I’ve no clue why I’ve never just carried a large cloth with me. It seems like the most apt rain gear judging by the trends. I can agree with this idea too. My jacket only shields my torso but what about me – as a whole. Now only if I had warning when it would rain, I would give this a shot. Since, its Michigan, I will perhaps never be certain though when it will pour.

lone flowers

I’ve been trying to capture all the blooming trees around Ann Arbor. The cyclic bouts of rain and sunshine have brought out the greens. Every shower of rainfall colors the city with a damp goodness, it can only be seen to believed.

good times

This weekend has seen a throng of people packed into Charley’s and Cantina. Its not like that it isn’t the case on any other weekend but the glorious sunshine made the situation even better. Today however, was different. It seems people have returned to the grind for the final finals week.

cycling through

Its been raining on and off in Ann Arbor for the past day. We get hours of great sunshine, the rain comes in and then the sun makes an encore appearance to throw up some humidity. I like rain and I like sunshine but in this order – hell no. I shot this cyclist climbing up Geddes Ave through the pouring rain.

turbulent skies

Before I got rained in on the previous shot, I was trying to capture the storm system passing by. The soccer field is of Angell Elementary School in Ann Arbor. This is probably one of my favorite experiences in a long time.
