Yesterday, I wrote about being out of my comfort zone. I want to continue that for a bit (no more video at the moment, that was a practice).
The forecasters were pretty much right, it had been raining all morning and was due to stop between 11-12, which it did. I wanted a change to my normal route down to the waterfront. Today’s walk still took me past a couple of pieces of water – difficult to avoid in Gosport. Near Alverstoke is the end of Stoke Lake, This is a managed piece of water which is popular for boating and swimming. It’s quite tidal and sometimes water can cover the road that runs along side it.
This is the point where my issue with my comfort zone kicks in. I saw this shoe at the waters edge, left by a receding tide. I wanted to take a picture of it, but given that it is in a highly public place and there were people about. I felt stupid taking a picture. That though, is the thing. It’s only me that feels that way. And indeed, other people may think I’m weird. Do I really care?
It’s supposed to be an arty-farty picture. I might try it in B&W.
Not too bad in B&W, plenty of texture there.
