Small Town USA
February… The dreaded month! In Minnesota it’s the time of the year when you start wishing for a new snow storm to get out with your camera again. Your other option is to redeem those frequent flyer miles and head south until may or june.
Some friends and I went out to look for eagles this morning. There were plenty of them, against a very boring grey sky and all out of lens reach (no one had an 800mm with…) None of us are avid bird photographers, or aspire to be, so we quickly decided to find a place to eat lunch instead of freezing in one place. After a good lunch we started exploring ‘small town USA’. Photographically speaking, it was not a satisfying day. On the other hand, it’s on challenging days like today that you grow the most by learning to see interesting things and a very ordinary place.
