Well - Spring will be here soon, hopefully, and that means it is a good time to clean and get rid of stuff, getting rid of stuff is very hard for me, anyone who knows me, knows how hard it is for me to throw anything away! So when we clean and purge, we can begin anew, we can renovate, give our home a face lift, modernize, brighten things up, and beautify. However you define it, it is good for you and good for your soul. I chose a picture to post that I titled "Tower Under Repair" which I took last summer. It reminds me that renovating is a constant process, you can always find something, somewhere that is being changed or fixed. In this image you can see the scaffolding on the Terminal Tower, (Cleveland, Ohio) even so there is still beauty to be seen. The picture was shot during the time right before dusk, when everything is painted with the 'sweet light'. It makes everything pretty and really accentuates texture in buildings and objects. Being a photographer has many blessings.....a big one for me is how it helps me connect to my environment, people and to my inner self, and sometimes even helps me solve conflicts.
