Siguen las birthday vibes porque nunca tuve quinces, ni un shooting tan cool de cumpleaños.😂 Gran trabajo de mis compañeros, a mi me tocó la producción, que fue patrocinada por @combiwow 💖
Ice is really coming in on the still backwaters with this round of cold weather. This will be my last "as it happens" #thedetourphotoproject post. I have a few more pics that I may share later when I have more time, but the end to this personal project sharing pieces of my day has arrived. I can't believe it. And it did not end as expected... This all started with road construction in April that closed a significant portion of my commute route and forced me to drive half of it along the Mississippi River. The drive is gorgeous and it became obvious to me in short order that I should bring my camera with me. My drives then became opportunities to scout safe pull off locations for accessing the river or views of the river. My stops became a break in the 65 minute commute that provided me space to enjoy and be present in the moment. My photographs, obviously, a means to share.
Construction was scheduled to be completed in November. I've heard that construction is essentially complete, just painting remains - but the detour signs persist. I had planned on taking this project to the point where the river freezes over, but this is where I must leave it. Heading from the west coast of Wisconsin to the West Coast next Monday for a work assignment for a few months. I'm excited. I'm terrified. I'm going to miss my husband, cats, family and friends. But it's temporary. Anything that gives you those feels is worth doing. That's what it feels like to get out of your comfort zone :) I will probably pick up this project some time after I return, but likely in a different form. I do not regret a single stop. Watching the waterfowl migrate, listening to the songbirds singing, river lapping at the shore, finding tiny jewels in the damselflies zipping over the surface, watching the leaves change color and the stars come out as the night crept in. I can't wait to do it again.
