They say rules are made to be broken. Let me sweeten it: to admit exceptions.
So, on day 8 I gave myself the rule
indoors or out of the window, but never stepping out, using the limited and limiting light and subject constraints offered by my home
and the first exception is on day 11 (that is today, of course).
Because as I was going to work, and somehow I had my camera with me (a habit I am taking after someone broke into our apartment last month, even though I prefer considering it a contribution to my readiness to catch images I otherwise would regret not being able to fix), I thought I should stop along the way to gather some impressions of a beautiful partially sunny and partially misty February day in the land of poplars.
Of course you can’t see poplars, just trust me: I am talking about exceptions, don’t be pedantic.
When I got out and took the children to school, it was plain fog, as we often see it during the cold months around here. And then, as the sun grew stronger and warmer, the fog evaporated in thin mist, the white halo you can also see in the distance, and finally left a blue clear dry sky, with glimpses of snowy mountains in the distance.
I can tell you, my morning at work was productive. Beauty helps.
