this sunday’s theme in “fotosöndag” was empty and as i was out for a short walk testing a borrowed 14-24mm wide angle zoom i came across these empty stairs. adding a vintage filter to enhance the solitaire feeling, almost a bit eerie.
the sun setting over the power lines crossing the barren landscape. a silhouette that i realize has some resemblance with a photo i did in sicily, at one of the craters of the volcano etna. it’s here: walking on the moon.
due to weather conditions instead of flying back to stockholm last friday i spent a night close to chicago o’hare airport and then most of the saturday at newark, waiting to get back home. so i spent a couple of hours looking at new york in the distance;
finally i was able to leave new york behind me with the city lights reflecting in the wing of the 757 taking me home. i would love to go back to new york, make no hasty conclusions here – but would then rather spend the time in the city than waiting on one of it’s airports…
apart from the travel last week to and from north carolina being awful with weather caused delays, in chicago on the way in and almost everywhere on the way out, i got a bit of spring as temperatures in charlotte were in the 70′s (around 20 C). attempted a walk along mallard creek greenway one day after office to enjoy the temperature, but after 5 minutes it started to rain quite heavily :(. just enough time to meet this little fellow, nice singing – but unknown to me. someone native in the area, i know a few of you are nc’s, can tell me maybe?
