There’s likely to be some sort of yearly retrospective at some point but until then these are (mainly) traveling shots. We’ve gone from Richmond VA to Huntsville AL and then to Jacksonville FL. All interesting highway paths. Shooting from the car is a challenge. It mixes aspects of landscape photography and the speed of street photography. I’m also shooting with the 85mm so that also adds an element of challenge as there is no zoom. I like marsh areas like this. The tugboat and the trees helped set it off. I tend to shoot silhouette shots at the beach. I liked the captured motion in this one. This guy was waving to cars on Christmas morning. People are interesting. A classic “See Rock City” shot. The barn is red. The road is unpaved. The roof is rusted. Another Christmas day shot. The Santa hat sets off the outfit. A huge number of vultures surrounded this particular pieceI guess “piece” is the right term. roadkill. We almost hit this vulture. I liked the strangely watercolor-like effect here even though the focus would likely have been better on the vulture. The mix of human made straight lines and the natural curves were the elements that appealed to me here. Someday I will go here. I’ve shot it a few other times from […]
This one was made entirely by the book covers. I liked the glimpse it gave of how she spent her time on the bus. I’m not exactly sure where this bus comes from but it drops off a number of people each day and it is an interesting group. “That mother . . . . just took our picture.” Closest to drama I’ve gotten thus far although I have been accused of being with the FBI and/or police with the stranger photo series. I still find the colors of the leaves to be impressive. I particularly like them over bricks and cobblestones. Lots of personality in that stride. The lens flare may be a bit over the top but I liked the imperfections in combination with the sic semper tyrannis in the background. We found this snake while wandering around in the woods. It was one that releases a rather unpleasant musk when it’s unhappy. The kids handled it for a while anyway. I like the mix here of the curve of the snakes neck, the pattern of the scales, and the variety of textures. The brightness of autumn leaves and rain slick cobblestones . . . There’s so much properness here. She is headed someplace, probably church. There’s also something about vines and bricks. A lot of the things […]
I find these pet pictures interesting. They seem oddly private and at the same time sad. Your pets are on display trapped in your house. You don’t often see people practicing for boxing on the street around here. This one looks better larger. Fun light, lots of repeated shapes. Gyro guy looks oddly tender as he makes the food. He chatted up everyone and in at least two languages. More fun with light in the morning.
