Stormchasing can be an unstoppable beast during the summer, where I feel like I’m non-stop on the road or processing weather photos. It’s actually been a nice break the past 4-5 days to have nothing going on almost anywhere in the state. I’ve gotten some other projects started, made headway in other areas that need addressing and have just relaxed a bit around home with the family.
Although yesterday when I picked my daughter up from daycare she said “Now we go stormchasing daddy!”
Ugh, hated to disappoint her. And me. Can’t stormchase with no storms little one!
I actually processed this image back a few months ago when I needed to do something different than lightning and dark clouds. This was from a photowalk back on December 29th of last year around downtown Phoenix. I made it a goal that day to stick with my 50mm 1.4 and just shoot what I saw with it. I love the little details on the old buildings and warehouses in the southern area of downtown.
I always liked this old hinged panel and was glad I finally went back and brought it to life.
(oh yeah, countdown to Discovery’s Storm Chasers premiere is now…5 days)
