Man, I'm dying to get out there and take pictures too. Portland has so many good textures. And the sky? It may always be overcast, but it's not slouch. Sunsets can be mind-blowing and texterous cloudcover abounds.
I like how the center is really crisp especially, then it kinda loses focus. Awesome work!
I'm working a lot now, which is good, but it leaves less time for creative endeavor. Ideally, I will make enough money to be able to not work so hard again, then I can focus on those things. I do consider what I do for a living a creative endeavor very often though, so its not all bad.
wow....you exactly wrote, what i think about my situation, too. i HATE it when i dont have time left to work on my pictures again. i mean, the real drawings and so on, where my heart belongs. i got 6 days of work and 1 day, where i'm in Berlin and do stuff, for example taking photos of walls like yesterday, but thats nothing... i hope, both of us get the time (and enough money) to get creative again without much strings attached.
