The job that pays my bills has me fully absorbed in a major project. On one side that’s great. The downside is too much time away from home and right now no time to shoot. Not even a tiny little bit. After a fifteen hour work day there is only a chance for a quick dive into last years archive before I call it quits.
This photo I took at the Kronach Light Festival last year. This is what I wished for during the day. To take a quick timeout from the meetings, sit for a few minutes in a quiet, spiritual place, thoughts drifting, eyes gazing around, unwinding a bit, reloading the battery, then back to work with new strength. My cold is still bothering me. As much as the many photographic projects I have on my mood board and that will have to wait.
Image taken with the Olympus PEN-F and the mZuiko 17mm f/1.8 with 1/30 sec and f/1.8 at ISO1600, handheld, jpeg out of camera, cropped to 4×6 ratio in Lightroom. The PEN-F generates excellent jpegs as you can see. Besides cropping I did not touch this image in post processing.
