Late summer roundup

It feels like ages since I've posted anything. I've been shooting, but just too lazy to post and write anything compelling.

I won't deliver any compelling prose here, but rather a mixed bag of images shot late this summer. Some holiday snaps, some observational stuff, some street, some god-knows-what. Gotta keep pressing that shutter button!

Photo essay #15: lazy Sunday mornings

Sunday mornings in the summer are special. You can sit around the table on the patio, linger over a few cups of coffee and soak in sunshine before it starts getting too hot & harsh.

Of course, the morning light is always nice (when the sun is actually out!). My trusty X100F is never far away, and it was easy for me to get distracted from my reading by noticing how the light was hitting stuff the garden and around the house.

I was more interested in shapes and shadows today, so most everything was shot in Acros and is straight out of camera. Of course, there were a few images that just begged for colour, so they got some SOOC Velvia love.

Not so suite

Modern suburban mid-range hotels are strange. We all know who stays there: families on road trips and business travelers. People who want to be anywhere else, like home. 

These hotels are waypoints, not destinations.

And yet, they couch themselves in an aura of fake "luxury," by calling their rooms "suites" and dolling up the reception areas with a thin veneer of modernity and aspirational luxe.

But the rooms themselves offer no illusion.

 

 

It's always sunny in Philadelphia

That's not really true, of course.

The City of Brotherly Love is quite picturesque, especially around the downtown and City Hall areas. The architecture is truly outstanding and very well maintained.
