Lonely (Project 52 - #6)

Friday Evening, 7:30 pm

In a building with over 400 employees, I would expect at least one other car in the parking lot at such an early hour during tax season. But not last night.

Gwynne ~ I know this feeling a lot... and NOT just at tax season either! ~ jb///

Tax season? Doesn't that start around April 10?

Seriously - do you get a lot of business this soon after the W2 forms go out?

JB, me too...but then I'm often the last one to the office in the morning. ;-)

Brian, we pretty much hit the ground running after year-end with businesses, as soon as they get their books closed. Of course, it's not as bad as it will get yet. Our first big deadline is 3/15 (for corporations). But you're right about individuals...we won't see many of those until next week, and many more the first week in April. 8-}

Oi! Except for the difference in vehicle, that's pretty much the exact same deserted row I see every morning when I roll in to work. Maybe everyone's procrastinating on their taxes like Turtle and I are, this year.

Heh. Now I'll have to post another of what the lot looks like when I arrive in the morning. It's quite the opposite of this. Procrastinate away, Foo. I don't do our taxes until the final extension due date in October. ;-)

Wow - That's empty! Your car looks lonely lol.

I like this picture: nicely composed. "Lonely" is a good word for the car, too.

Thanks, John. I wasn't really thinking about composition, but I did take several shots and this one was the only one that felt "right."

That's because the car is leaving the frame. I remember that much from the basic photography/darkroom course I took (so many years ago) in college.

But that's probably what you meant, huh?

Speaking of composition, you may have seen a link from my blog to JoeRecumbo's blog. He's over in China for a while and has been photoblogging a bit. There are several architectural shots in his current posting (toward the bottom) that are positively frame-worthy.

I only mention it because I know you like art.

Thanks, Foo. I had not been to JoeRecumbo's blog and I love those shots...very frame-worthy indeed.

Interesting what you say about the car leaving the photo. I might have expected to get dinged for that. But then, the only thing I remember from my photography/darkroom class (besides the thrill of images appearing out of nothing!) was that contrast and patterns are often more interesting than subject matter (esp. for b/w photos). But I kind of like the way the lines of perspective all come to a point at a "window" in the center of the photo without being the focal point of the photo, balancing out the fact that the car is falling off of the page. And know that none of this was intended or understood when I snapped the shot. ;-)
