Muir Woods to be exact. A lovely national park just north of San Francisco. The light among these giant redwoods varied constantly from harsh direct sun to a gloomy darkness, making the extreme contrast hard to handle. This couple in front of me just got kissed by the sun in a way that created a silhouetted look that I liked.
For me, this small muddy creek and a weathered rotting railing team up to make a mental barrier to the beauty that lays beyond.
A mist hovers lightly on the hills in the distance as we walk the 2 mile route around Shollenberger Park. We didn’t see too many birds today as we had started out rather late but, no matter, the hills’ soft muted colors made a beautiful backdrop to our stroll.
Not much to say about this except I like the juxtaposition of the ages and color tones and putting the two images together messes with my mind.
I pine for simplicity!! Simple cameras taking pictures of simple subjects often create the most impact.
I’d like to say the composition of this photograph was completely planned. It wasn’t. I knew the worried woman in the foreground would make a good subject but the train arriving along her right side and the man in red on her left just fell into place as I pushed the shutter. I really do like the final result though planned or not.
I’m sure these luxury bedecked, gold plated, plastic surgery scarred ladies think they look just great…but The camera tells a different story. This is one of those lucky street shots that gets improved by something in the picture I never saw. I was concentrating on just taking a picture of these gals and I did get the shot. However, what really makes the picture…
