Ten Minutes Away Photo Shoot

The FSO theme this week was to take pictures of places ten minutes from where you live.  I think this is a creative idea.  It is one of those assignments that gets me out of my usual style.  Sometimes, I hate what I end up with and sometimes, I am amazed by it.  Anyone who does a creative activity benefits from stepping out of their comfort zone periodically.  These last two weeks have been incredibly chaotic in terms of time management, so I am sharing shots that I took previously of a place about ten minutes from where I live.  These shots are from when we did shoot-out on a building.  It was something I was totally new to and really enjoyed it.  Often, the FSO gives me permission (in my own head of course) to take a creative risk and try something I may or may not be very good at.  Everytime, I learn something and enjoy myself in the process!!  Anyway, I hope you like!
