Sometimes one’s home life presents colorful photographic opportunities. This was supper 2 nights ago. I couldn’t resist.

Summer Fun (A Happy Picture}

With all the terrible news these days, I thought I would just post a happy picture of a bunch of people cooling off in Boston’s Frog Pond. 

Gay Pride “Belles”

Boston holds a huge gay pride parade every year. It’s a celebration of sexual diversity and frankly, for a photographer, presents a gold mine of subjects. These “belles” were all seated in a row along one side of Boston’s main public library. It was unclear to me whether they intended to march or just enjoyed dressing up and being noticed. Either way their dresses were a rainbow of color presented an easy composition.

Under The Trestle

There’s an old railroad trestle that runs along the river here in Petaluma. For the most part its underpinnings are inaccessible to camera toting folks. However, there’s one spot where one can see underneath it and yesterday the midday sun lit up this mass of rocks and rotting pilings. I like this jumble composition and wondered whether it would look better in black and white but when I tried it, I really missed the blue.

The strong verticals in this photograph neatly divide it in thirds. To be honest about it, I didn’t see this when I took the picture. It was the figure in the foreground that mattered,

Sometime the photography gods bestow treasures on those who aren’t expecting them. To wit, yesterday we had stopped for a cup of coffee and a snack in the town of Jenner before going on to a rock climbing site that Sarah’s son wanted to try. I pulled in the lot and got out of the car and there immediately below me was this little kayak mooring site. All it took was one click.
