Brandy Day153: Straight. No Chaser

image

Shooting on borrowed time.
I couldn’t take it. I was feeling lousy. I needed a camera in my hands again.
Happy that the past two days had been rain filled so I felt I wasn’t missing out on too much. As the rain tapered off and the clouds broke, I noticed the orange glow in the sky. I wasn’t sure what I’d get when I headed out but it was worth the chance. As I drove I crossed over 69 and this is where I stopped. Where I shot until the sun set. It was beautiful. The sun melted into the horizon as the clouds ushered in another storm.  The onset of the looming storm didn’t matter and neither did the past couple of days, I got this shot and for that moment I was more than happy.
Shot from an overpass mid country facing I-69 south.

Brandy Day141: Don’t Take What You Don’t Need….

A change in the weather.  Some gnarly clouds rolled through tonight. Thunderstorms remind me of so much. I love the smell of rain, the roll of thunder, the surprise of lightning, the ominous look the clouds hold and the breathe taking sky it creates after the madness. It is all simply so easing and beautiful.
Every year deadly storms rip through small towns or big cities. Lives are randomly chosen and lost. For those, we remember.
Shot over Giest Reservoir after the storm.

Brandy Day81: I’ll be Outside!!

image

Last open, all day double. Started off decently slow.
I was taking food to a table when I noticed the orange glow reflecting off a building across the street. I walked back into the kitchen, grabbed my phone and stated to whoever would listen,  “I’ll be outside” as I rushed out the back kitchen door.
You have to be tired of the sunset photos. I get it. Someone once said, “I love them, they are all the same but yet somehow different”.  I see it. They see it. I love it. In midst of all the chaos I still find my happiness.

Brandy Day71: Head in the Clouds

Seriously I can focus on nothing but the sun setting when I know its coming. I can be super busy at work and yet continue to peak out the window. I won’t hesitate to ask someone to keep an eye on things so I can run outside and snap a quick photo. There is something about watching the sun set to summarize the days end.
What makes me smile though, is getting texts from my friends or family members asking if I’m catching the sunset, if I can see the colors in the sky, or if I see the cloud line. They know what it means to me and that is awesome. Tonights cloud line was gnarly!
Shot outside of work, slinging drinks and selling wings.
