In a chaotic world

This motion blur of a truck driving out of downtown one morning symbolized the chaos we are living in right now. Recognizable but distorted, interesting while being dark and ominous at times.

I haven’t found solid ground after the Russian invasion of Ukraine began. It is sorrowful to watch as they stand alone on this longest night with a world watching. Watching but not joining the defense of a nation. I had a long rant but in the end the words felt empty – mine mimicking the outrage voiced by countries the world over. Voiced but not actioned. War is never sought but if there is no response to tyranny nor to domination of the weaker, then I fear what this world will look like. I am a secular person but I am praying for the people of Ukraine.

    • Hello! The camera settings for this image were 1/4 second at f/22 on iso 200. I was using a 17-40 lens at 40mm focal length. Manual exposure and with 6050K for my white balance. In post, I increased saturation and contrast as well as opened up the shadows. Cheers!
