Photography – Week 84
There is something strange about geckos. This is my oldest son’s new pet. We’ve gone without pets for some time. Harder to see in this smaller size but I liked the shadows here. Hopefully I say this in a way that is different from the way people convince themselves they taste nuances in wine. I simply like the shadows. I would not pay extra money for them and would be happy if they came from light I bought at a gas station. There were a long series of these ads in large and small sizes. They felt a bit like folk art. It was pretty much the middle of nowhere yet the need for wigs must have been great. It is hard to take pictures of dunes that don’t feel boringly repetitive. I’m not sure I succeeded here but I though the way the light hit the single dune like a spot light was worth capturing. I try to take pictures of this building often- usually from the highway. It’s a pretty cool building and this was taken at the end of a 12 hour car ride. The light at that time of night mixed with the street light and rain created an interesting effect. It was freezing cold when I took this shot. It was on the south end […]
I liked the colors backed by the shadows. I’m shooting with the 70-200 zoom lens right now so I thought it’d be fun to do a VCU urban wildlife series. So far I have this rabbit and a series of birds (grackle, starling, mocking bird, robin). The dress rehearsal for the school play. Opening day for baseball/softball. The soccer coach looks on.Can you tell how I’ve been spending my time? Spring is in full swing. Backstage. Serious business. Strange fruit.
