My Commute to Work

Like many of you I have a full day, with my job, family and chores around the house.  It’s often difficult to find time for my passion, photography.

With the arrival of Spring and Daylight Savings Time, I began to notice some photo opportunities during my morning commute to work.  I figured that if I left about 20 minutes earlier than normal and did some pre-planning, good things might happen.

Here are the results of yesterday’s commute:

I saw this tree as I was leaving my subdivision.  The early morning mist around the base of the trunk was appealing to me.  I hoped that I would be able to expose the scene correctly to capture the detail.

Time was a factor so I took a few shots and moved on.

I took these 2 shots at a local park just as the sun was rising.  There was mist on the water and fog in the air.  The timing was just right so I quickly set up my tripod and fired away.

Happily I was able to get in some photo time and arrive at work as scheduled.

I will definitely use my commute for mini photo shoots again, but maybe there are other ways to fit photography into a busy life.

Please leave me a comment and let me know how you find time to pursue your passion.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. My first thought was, “This is what he sees on his way to work? I need to work there.” LOL>>> Your photos are beautiful. You captured the moments perfectly. Finding time is always difficult. I grab moments here and there because my schedule is never the same. I try to know what the weather is going to be like the next day so I can prepare and I carry my camera and stuff with me everywhere I go. I’m only a beginner so, I need all the practice I can get and therefore, grab any moment I can find. Sometimes, I’m driving and see something when I waiting for a light change … Grab my camera and shoot away. 😀
