A byproduct of the Nicollet Mall reconstruction is the impact on the sidewalks. Some are closed. Some don’t cross at the intersection. You have to cross 7th Street twice just to cross the Mall. I never go outside when I am in a hurry.
Someone asked what I have learned this year. In no particular order of importance:
I love taking landscape photos. Where is the image that I would like to see again? So much beauty in the world.
I thought I would explore more. Many work days didn’t leave time.
I am more likely to stop and take a photo instead of driving past. Haven’t been late yet.
My photos are a reflection of me.
Experiment with the camera settings but don’t obsess. You can clearly help your photos with the proper settings but you still need to “see” the image. The right settings don’t help an uninteresting photo.
Lightroom and Photoshop are wonderful tools and black holes for my time.
