365 Project : Day 039

They say 365 Project is about taking risks, I’ve read that a couple of times somewhere…  And I think, that’s 100% correct.  If I shoot landscape and architecture shots all the time, I am completely negating the purpose of the 365 project, which is about learning, discovery and creativity.  I need to step away of my comfort zone and try something new.  This is me taking another risk.  Well, I have been most of the time, since I started this project.

I don’t know how this idea came, but it occurred to me… and I’m glad it did.  Otherwise, I won’t have a day 39 🙂  This is another nail biter, 50 minutes before day 40!

Gear: Canon 7D + Tokina 11-16 + 580exii

    • Hi Abby, that’s not me 🙂

      The hand is not pressed up against something, it just looks like it because of the shadow created by back lighting it. And all the blue textured are the actual dusts of the glass door… since we are in the desert, that’s pretty normal 🙂
