HDR ME ASAP

Where has Pluck and Lights been? Is she dead?

Asleep, maybe, but not dead.

This blog was originally conceived as a ‘daily photo’ blog. In that regard it’s become a failure over the last month. I’ve been hinting, though, that I want to take it in another direction. We’re not there yet but it is coming, I think, within a month. 

You see, real life just got real. My wife just accepted a job elsewhere which means we need to pack her off and I need to figure out my St. Louis endgame. That’s bittersweet to me. St. Louis is a great town and it’s a great time to be here.

My guess is that I’ll be in town for another six months. I have projects that I want to finish before I leave and I’d like to have work waiting for me in my future city. These things take time to setup  such is the two-body problem of modern life. 

The photo at top is a shot from my archives. It’s an HDR shot of a wet street in downtown St. Louis. I don’t do HDR too often any more, because it’s so easy to abuse, but I like it here. The city is dark and reflective during rain storms and single exposures just don’t capture that dynamic range.
