I often feel like as we're making great strides conquering sexism against women, but the ways in which the patriarchy harms men is laughed off and ignored, sometimes even by people who believe in the equality of the genders.
From my perspective, equal doesn't just mean "A woman should be able/allowed to do anything a man can do" but also "A man should be able/allowed to do anything a woman can do." (Applied to the entire gender spectrum, of course.) And this cultural phenomenon that many people are deeming "toxic masculinity" or machismo is what stands in the way of true equality.

A week ago my daughter and I drove up to Indiana Dunes State Park to check out the dunes and see lake Michigan. I think my daughter was thinking about a day at the beach and I was thinking cool sand dunes with shadows and curves. What we found were dreary skies, stinging flies, biting misquotes and dunes covered in trees. The "ghost" in this shot is my daughter as we started the walk back to the parking lot. I think I'll need to do more research before we go back again:)
P.S. I'm guessing that song dates me a bit ;-)

For this image I wanted a dark and moody feel with strong contrasts. I started with a 5 shot hand held HDR set and then did the B&W processing in Nik Silver Efex. I can see a few HDR artifacts but overall I like the effect. I didn't bring my tripod as this would have been a great place for some long exposure shots:)
