Within an Hour

It's been a long couple of weeks of freezing weather and furtive portfolio editing with my friend from across the fence. It is remarkable how many different ways there are to shoot, and not just across months, but within a day, or even, within an hour. As frustrating as it can be to be a newspaper photographer sometimes, there comes with each day an opportunity to be completely different, to be better, to try harder, to wait longer, to care more, to leave open the opportunity to colossal failure and sometimes monumental achievement, even if that achievement is known only to you. I brought the lights. Sometimes I used them, sometimes I didn't. It feels good to be learning something and, finally, just to be taking pictures. These are outtakes from today.
