I couldn’t believe how wonderfully the light bathed this guy’s face. It was almost as good as light in a portrait studio.

We took a boat for a sunset cruise up and down the Zambezi river yesterday. To say it was memorable would be an understatement. Many different kinds of birds, hippos, crocodiles, water buffalo; you name it and it was there.
The light when I took this shot was right out of the African Queen movie!

As photographers, studying light is what we do. Right? That’s why, when Sarah and I went to Mass MoCA yesterday, the James Turrell exhibit was such a treat. Here’s an artist who uses light to “connect the light outside us with the light inside us”.
For me Turrell’s work goes deep inside me and touches a world that normally sits quietly behind my consciousness just out out of reach.

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.

Aren’t we all?

We used to travel a lot. Digging through some of my old “road” pictures, I came upon this one. I’ve got no idea where I took this but clearly the shafts and splotches of light were of interest, as were the multiple doorways. The soft muted browns don’t hurt either.

Sometimes the god of good light gives me a present.
