Took a walk this past Sunday along the Red Fox Meadows nature trail. Mostly cloudy day but so enjoyable and much needed time in nature to clear the thinking. It also provides the exercise my body and spirit need. I find it fascinating when scenes appear that catch my attention and become an image for me. I feel like a child discovering something new. Processed this image with one of the presets in Silver EFEX Pro. Made a tone curve adjustment then posted it.

This is a common scene on campus. I probably could come home with a dozen such images each day I wander on campus. However, something interesting about this image is the lack of earbuds by this young lady. She is one of the few with them.
I took this image in the Diane Warren Kindness Lounge at the Lory Student Center. The lounge is a study area with a great view, fireplace and an interesting sculpture located outside the windows. It is usually quiet so it is perfect to finish your last minute readings.
I had coffee at Mugs in Old Town this past Sunday morning. Even added a bagel and cream cheese so it was an even better morning. As I stood up to leave I noticed these umbrellas in the Armstrong Hotel lobby through the shared window/wall. So, I went next door and asked to take a few images of the umbrellas and the chair in the lobby. Pretty sure this will look familiar to Tom as this is where he and Kathy stayed while visiting Fort Collins. I chose black and white because the chair and umbrellas are black. It just seemed to fit the mood.
