A place for me to share my recent work, random musings on photography and reflect on my thoughts, experiences, ideas and revelations.

Making Progress

I've spent most of this weekend at the computer and am starting to make a dent. I added a bunch of images to my website, including a section called "Experiments" with a couple of new galleries. I got the idea of doing some "mini-projects" and did a couple of them on our NC Coast trip. These two galleries are images of sand patterns and wave motion blurs. I think they'll make nice prints but need to figure out a way to present them. That's another item on the to-do list!

The Hurrier I Go

The hurrier I go the behinder I get, my grandma used to say. Just this weekend I was able to start digging into the 1400+ images from our trip to the NC coast. I haven't found any "portfolio" images yet but I feel they will appear as I go back and listen to some of them.

This image is one of a number of shots I took of this drift fence, what we used to call snow fences up north, along Highway 12 on Ocracoke Island. The late afternoon sun was casting some nice shadows and the sky was nice and blue with some nice wispy clouds.

Some may suggest that I need to take out the power lines in the upper left, and I suppose if I make this into a print I would do that. For now we'll stick with reality.

Ocracoke Island!

We had been anxiously awaiting our return to Ocracoke Island, having only been there for part of a day back in 2005. Our memory of the place as being a photo-rich environment was quite accurate, as I filled a couple of 4 Gig cards during our stay. I had been hoping to get a different-than-the-picture-postcard shot of the Ocracoke Island Lighthouse, and I think I have it with this one. I shot this just after sunset from the 4th floor balcony of our motel, The Anchorage Inn.
