It’s August in Tennessee which usually means unbearable heat and humidity but Mother Nature has seen fit to give us a break for a bit. Today was great weather so I decided to head down to Chattanooga for a little bit of exploring. It was not great photo weather as it was sunny sunny with a side of extra sun but it felt so nice to get outside and walk around. I wanted to challenge myself to find a hand full of images I could walk away with and be happy with. Because it was so sunny the contrast was just too much for color shots so I changed them to black and white to emphasize the contrast. Normally I would have never gone shooting but I’m trying new things so part of that is shooting even when the weather is not perfect. So I’m giving up chasing the perfect shot and instead focusing on what’s in front of me.
