I used my time today work on the laptop a bit and do some catch-up on paperwork. For a brief period, I even pulled out my fiddle and played a few tunes (until I realized there were still folks working in the downstairs Art Association office...sorry!!!).
Sometime after lunch, I figured it might be a good day to wander around the local art galleries. You just can't imagine how many nice galleries there are in such a small little town! High quality art from very well-known local, statewide and even out-of-state artists. Most of the artwork seemed to have been inspired by the beauty of the Leelanau area.
Here's just a sampling of some of the galleries I wandered around in all in one afternoon (and this was just in Glen Arbor):
Lake Street Studios
Ruth Conklin Gallery
Of course, I had someone tell me I should get out there and capture the moodiness of the somber gray weather. However, when I was all fired up to see beautiful fall colors and crisp autumn skies, I just couldn't get inspired. Most of my photography tends to concentrate on the beautiful colors found in nature, and when there isn't much color, I find myself struggling to find subject matter.
Better luck tomorrow?
Dinner tonight was takeout Thai Peanut Noodles from MayBings Takeout Market. After my terrific yet calorie-laden meal at Art's yesterday (I found myself craving another juicy burger from there!), I steered clear and had pasta and veggies instead. Besides - there is still some cherry pie left...
