The Stairs at the End of the Tunnel


In a part of the neighborhood that already does not feel particularly safe...

EDITED: Didn't like the sepia tone after a while...

Leaf in Patchwork


Makeshift patch-up repairs to footbridge across a railway.  Only a matter of time before they shut it down entirely and rebuild.

Balusters


I'm on a black & white kick at the moment. I set my camera on monochrome and walked around in the light rain today for hours trying to "see" in black & white. I don't want to commit to any specific period of time for this, but I expect to reverse the usual routine of shooting in color and then converting occasionally to B&W as an afterthought.

I'm also maintaining two other photo posting sites and trying to keep the content unique on all three, with only sporadic overlap.

Instagram - not so serious, but I still try to maintain some quality standards.
Tookapic - daily photos for the 365 challenge.

Tookapic gets priority these days because it's a commitment to daily posting, and sometimes for several days in a row I struggle (hence the "challenge") to find or create even one decent picture to post.
