I was taking a photograph of the duck against the flotsam, thinking it was interesting. The duck was distracted by my presence and the turtle was getting closer. I figured I should leave not wanting to be part of any subsequent problems. When I processed the photograph in black and white I gave it a sort of old time contrasty look.

These two photographs were all about how these colours and textures would work in black and white. I like lady bugs. Their amazing acrobatics make for great photos, but sometimes the photo is part of how you learn.

This flower struck me as quite unique and I did my best to capture what I saw. In circumstances like this its not always clear others will have the same appreciation. That is one of the risks of the photographic art.

I found these as they are. They made me look twice and that is my objective, to shoot photographs that make people look (often popularly called “impact”). There is a lot of “language” in photography, some is not entirely clear to everyone and I have seen several dictionaries on line, none of them complete.

I have walked this route more times than I can count, and taken almost as many photos. Today I’m wondering when I will get back there with my camera. We live in uncertain times. All is well at my end and I hope it is at yours as well.

There is an endless number of variations on how windows (with or without reflections) make for great photographs. Depending on how you process window photos you will be surprised at what is in the reflective portions. Sometimes you can mix the surreal, abstract and reality in one shot without compositing, often just by adjusting shadows and contrast.


Texture (Two Photographs)

Texture has many meanings in photography; it can refer to mood, background or even the subject.  I try to keep this in mind when taking and processing photos, as it’s an element I can make creative use of. I chose these photos because texture is front and centre.
