Nautical Daydream fits this image so well and I'll tell you why; if I took our gaze from looking down at this composition (because that is what we are doing, looking down from above) one would see a perfect marina scene of lovely sailboats. That is what I was on this tall pier doing along with everybody else; gazing out at the scene on a warm summer day. Some people were eating...
I got to thinking about this intended art project, pivot or whatever it may become when I began to choose the next photo to come into the gallery here. My Earthbound abstract photo collection has the least amount of photos in it so it became the one to fill. I knew the abstract photograph I wanted to fill the spot. All I had to do was find it!
As the saying goes, "Nobody gets out of here alive!" No truer statement can be made. We are all born and we all die. Some people go through it quickly. Others wonder why they get all the extra time. I think nobody really knows why. We've found pockets of places as far flung as South America or Russia where people live extremely long lives as a group, comparably longer than the general population of the earth. We don't really hear about the people...
The time has come to place a new photo into my gallery here! Which one? I got all scientific this week and posed the question to personal friends, sailing aficionados, photography pros and amateurs, artists... even Mom! After vigorous polling the votes were compiled and remarkably the two photos were tied! The comment threads were really great. And interestingly, the photogs who voted were...
Photography combines skill and chance in pretty equal portions. The more you know your equipment and the situation the better the opportunity becomes for the chance part. That could probably sum up life in general. Depending on the level of skill you have to do one thing or another, the chances are better for you to mitigate the things that can go wrong! Of all the things I thought I might be thinking about at the new year, World War III was not one of them.
I will never forget the day. It was almost my last! And it was a harbinger of what was to come. I had visited this location before. It had an intriguing set of old stairs down to the water from the bluff above. I got there early because the clouds were spectacular, especially for San Diego, which doesn't see many days of clouds
I have admitted a new image to my SeaDreams Collection. This special multi-year project gives me immense satisfaction because it is the closest thing I have come to painting emotion with my camera lens. It's of my own doing. There is never going to be anything like it produced by me or anyone else...
"Crowding" is my newest image in the Classic Sail gallery! I originally produced this photo in color but the photo shouted black and white! I took this on the water at the 2019 12 Metre World Championships. On this day, the fleet raced behind The Newport Bridge on the East Passage of the Narragansett Bay between Conanicut Island and Aquidneck Island.
I am on the prowl for nature photography. Locally, I can time the various bloom periods at the coast, in the hills and out in the desert. I also like to grow plants in my own yard. I'm lucky to have a yard in the city. Most people do not. Shooting flowers in the yard has taught
The difference with landscape photography for me is that it is a solitary activity usually done away from civilization. It is a definitive zen moment of my own.This is unlike seascape photography that has several additional inputs; like, wave action, tide action, sea birds, children and families frolicking in the surf, helicopters, surfers, parking considerations and more! See what I mean?
I actually made note of this odd tide pool texture when scouting my sunset location, Moments after I got my sunset shot I walked over to this spot again and saw how the last rays of the sun were casting a warm glow across the scene. It took some wrestling to get overhead of what I was seeing with the equipment. I almost ran back to my car to get a step stool!
I am bringing you some select high performance sailing photography from the 12 Metres and beyond as desktop wallpaper giveaways during 2022. In fact, I'm starting right now! "Squeeze Play" is my first EVER desktop wallpaper giveaway. In the photo you see Victory 83 running through her competitors before dropping the chute to round the mark..
I stepped out of Hostal Lola just before the sun came up and walked over to the intersection where the first rays of sunlight were hitting the brightly colored buildings. I set my tripod down and this gentleman came hurriedly out of the shadows and I was able to snap him as he made his way to a bus stop to get to work. My photo of "Dawn Man" was the start of a magical hour!
Taking photos of moving objects is a challenge. Any time you add several factors to an image it the opportunity for failure is multiplied. Add to that the need to shoot frames quickly and a sailing moment can easily
