When John Etheridge, Book Of Bokeh , invited me to participate in a monochrome challenge I replied ‘yes’ immediately. Like most everything else I do in life I just charged straight ahead.
A short time later it struck me. Good grief, these are real photographers, they even know how to write. To steal from Ansel Adams; they make pictures. I take them.
I like what I take. I hope there are times I place my own stamp on some. But I take them, and that’s what I do. I just want to share what I see.
That said what I chose for day 1 is a photograph that at any other time is deleted. Glare on water, a dark subject, and trash.
Trash is the point here. I typically shoot wildlife….and the sad damage we as people are doing to the tiny little world as they know it.
I guess there’s a reason I didn’t delete this one.
