Today I was begging for a picture. By 7:35 PM I hadn't taken a photo, so I went to scope out a few of my favorite downtown Kalamazoo subjects: the Amtrak Train Depot, the old Gibson Guitar Factory and Bruno's Pizza. All three of my planned subjects just didn't have anything special to offer today. The lighting was generally bad and the buildings were lifeless. Then I remembered this house near Louie's Tavern that I had photographed before in the early morning in the dead of summer. It was a good subject 2 years ago when I last visited it and when I hopped out of my car to snap a shot today, the cold front clouds and the defoliated dandilions framed this house in a new way.
