Turning Tables: Empty Umbrellas

This is the last photo in what has become an unintentional series of images I’ve labeled “Turning Tables”. I didn’t set out to photograph empty tables in empty restaurants, but in the course of my photo-walk around Celebration Town Center, that’s what I saw; it’s what was present. I think this illustrates something very important about photographic creativity: being versatile, adaptive and aware. Admittedly, it wasn’t until I had captured the third image that I realized I had a theme going I could build upon. Sometimes it just happens that way, and I believe we have to let it. I find that some of the best photographs I produce are those which were spontaneous and unplanned; captured by chance in the course of doing something that was intentional.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the photos.

Long Out of Gas But Not Out of Go

Very special prayers for peace, healing and understanding in the wake of the evil and cowardly bombings in Boston yesterday.

“Love one another…”; “love your neighbor…”; “love one another as yourself…”; “love your enemies…”; “God is love…”
Why don’t we get it? Why can’t we do it?

Today’s photo is another one from last week’s Daytona Beach photo walk. What appears from this image to be an old gas station is, in reality, now a popular and thriving local drinking establishment. So I guess it’s fair to say people fuel up around here, just in a very different way.
