“Fury” is an honest portrayal of the brutality of war, the toll it takes on soldiers, and how those soldiers manage to fight on in the face of overwhelming odds. Make no mistake, this is not a movie for the squeamish. “Fury” tantalizes us with calm, and then hits us square in the jaw; and this happens from jump street.
As always, very minor spoilers below the trailer; nothing that will give away the overall plot or ending.
Today is not the day I normally post pictures, but I was looking for a new header image when I happened upon this shot. Since I neglected to post yesterday (I’ve got an idea for a fun post but haven’t had the time to put it down on paper yet), I thought I would quickly post this for your enjoyment.
The power had gone out and so I resorted to candlelight for the night! How old-fashioned of me. Anyway, I love the way the light plays on this shot, and while I staged the layout, I didn’t expect it to come out this well. Enjoy.
As a writer, I draw a lot of inspiration from nature. When I look around and see everything that there is to see, I can’t help but be in awe. When I discovered photography, I realized that I had the perfect opportunity to capture images that I can later use as source material for my writing.
While the following pictures are not the source of anything I’ve written so far, they are very much examples of the type of inspiring sights I search for.
I almost always take both a color and a black & white shot when I am out and about for two reasons:
Sometimes, black & white can be more striking than a color picture, and vice versa
Editing a picture on the computer somehow makes it feel less authentic (even if I’m the only one who knows)
This was an occasion where both are beautiful, and both convey the majesty of a small river in Texas.
