Color Wheel

DSC03768

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. 

Red…A One Color Story

There you have it. What more is there to say?

A New Style In Homeless Shelters

I walked up close enough to see the man curled up under his golf umbrella trying to sleep. However I backed off before taking this picture so I could get a good shot of the church to give the image good contex.

B&W vs Color…A Matter of Choice

The more I take photographs the more I’m drawn to the simple power of black and white. I think B&W removes the crutch that beautiful color can provide and leaves composition and tonality in charge. It pares down an image and often that seems to provide more emotional depth.

The Blue Ukulele

An interesting combination between the instrument’s happy blue color and his hard stare. 

Still Unsure (Damn!)

My previous post sang the praises of rendering this image in black and white. Drifting back just now to look at the color image, I’m starting to think that keeping the color may be a better choice.

For now I’ll keep both of them around and in a month or so this quandary should settle out.

Yes Little One It’s A Very Big Ocean

A small girl in bright colors on a beach. Those elements have a lot of potential for making a good photograph. To my eye though, what makes this image is NOT seeing the water.

I’ve heard it said often, what’s not in the picture can often be as important as what is.
