Taking a knife to a gun fight

Having a landscape lens when you come up on wildlife is like taking a knife to a gun fight. I chose a landscape lens on a river boat ride knowing full well there would be wildlife while using internal reasoning that I didn’t want to lug around heavy equipment – after all this was a leisure trip.

Guess what… yup, entering a cove there was a troop of monkeys 😂

What did I do?  What any gunfighter would I took the shots knowing I’d gone to a gunfight with a knife.

All we are is dust in the wind so count your blessings and go take more photos.

HIGH NOON at the estate gate

High Noon at the  Estate Gate I finished 2013 with a photo of an estate gate and I begin 2014 with a photo of the same gate.

Both photographs were taken at HIGH NOON on different days. 

IMHO I believe light has more to do with making or breaking a photo than the kind of camera that is used. 

Personally I like this photo better than the last post because of the subtle lighting on the overcast day.

Bells are UTILITIES in the maritime lifestyle

Bells are useful UTILITIES on the sea, relaying information from the wheel house to the deck and below deck.

At the entrance of the St Augustine Marina is a concrete column with 2 huge bells, this view was taken while standing beneath the bells. 

I’d gotten away from B&W because the Topaz filter crashes nearly each time I use it. Thanks to Tammy, Boomer and Steve for suggesting “Quests” be transformed into B&W I decided to continue the process. The program crashed over and over. I did find some work arounds and used previous suggestions to add detail and separation so, it will be interesting to carry on the conversation on your thoughts and suggestions!

REMEMBER days gone by using photographs

Photo’s help us to REMEMBER times in our lives, some of them are momentous and others are quiet fleeting moments. While sipping on a cup of coffee I noticed a light fog on the surface of the pool water. Knowing this was most likely not going to happen again until next winter since cool nights are becoming a rarity I was compelled capture an image to help me remember this special time of the morning.
