Late Afternoon Accident

The bird helped a lot.

The Tree On The Top Of The Hill

Black and white photographs of the right things can be SO damn powerful. This tree is an example. In color its shape was certainly arresting but, the green grass in front of it and the blue sky behind tended to diminish its absolutely lovely form. Removing those distractions just made the whole thing pop!

The harsh sunlight and his dark clothing contributed to my decision to make a silhouette out of this shot. It was a shoot from the hip grab shot. The shutter clicked at exactly the right time. For this kind of shooting I just set the camera to program and the ASA to 1600 and let the software do its magic.

The Icarus Bird

It’s pretty unusual to be street shooting with a little camera like the Ricoh GR and come away with a picture like this. This bird was one of flock of pigeons that came barreling over me while I was walking through the Boston Public Garden. Silhouetted against the sun, it created a fine center point. The snap focus feature on the camera made it possible.

The Long And The Short Of It

Same day…Same tree…About 20 minutes apart.

An egret and the kingfisher greet the day.
