Photo: Chilly Night – Bend Oregon

It’s 2012 and this is my first post of the year and I thought long and hard about what I should write about. Do I draw up a Year in Review post? Maybe list out my Resolutions?  While I still may do those I figured I’d just get started and post a photo.

One of many goals for 2012 was to force myself to be more creative. A problem I’ve had over the past few months was feeling unmotivated and uninspired to create any kind of photographic art. I tire of my current surroundings as I’ve seen them since I was a youngin’.

Last night was my first attempt to force myself to go out and try and find beauty where I previously wasn’t able to see any. The following photo is of downtown Bend, Oregon. It was chilly, somewhere around 25F. And while I’m not totally in love with this photo, I figured I’d post it anyway. Something is better than nothing right?

I also shot a 10 second timelapse at the same intersection. I would have shot more probably but I wasn’t able to feel my fingers and toes anymore. I’ll be posting that in a few days. I’ll probably release the link on my Facebook page first, so if you haven’t yet be sure to “Like” us over there! VBG on Facebook
