Photography – Week 129
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 was at the train station around 5:20 AM. I like the dull colors and almost stupor like gaze of the man against the open-mouthed-hyper-enthusiasm of the TV “personality.” I didn’t get quite as close as I wanted. I shot fairly quickly because I couldn’t believe he’d keep holding that awkward pose. Another early AM train station shot. She just oozed bored resignation. This one just felt a bit surreal to me. The older gentleman in the background hit the light in an interesting way and the double glass doors lent some interesting reflections. Just a leaf plastered to some glass in the VCU engineering building but between the colors and the patterns of the water and background I found it to be interesting. Photographs earlier this week were pretty hard to come by because of lots of rain. The pipes made this alley wall feel a bit like lined paper. Just lots of black and white shapes.
