Photo Friday, three days late.
I have had no time to get out and shoot anything lately, so today I took off from work at 3:00 and went to a place where I find a nice feeling of nothingness. I was particularly frustrated today, as I have some 12th grade students who don’t seem to care at all about their final exam. It’s the last week of classes and the 12 grade English exam is worth 40% of the year’s mark. Yes, that’s stupid, or at least short sighted. But it’s the reality that my students have to deal with, or ignore, in the case of these girls. So I needed to find some zen nothingness. Empty my mind and concentrate on the void.
As for the photo, Photo Friday’s challenge this week is Shade. I thought this matched up with the challenge pretty well. I have yet to master HDR so I don’t try. I don’t love the super-bright foreground with the properly exposed middle ground and the over-exposed background, but the photo still captures what I love about this place.
