I have photographed this work several times, never very well. I have tried angles, settings, etc. This time all I wanted was to get the depth and focus correct. Let the rest just happen. It did.
I have no name for this, the pun may or may not work. No matter how it’s shot the results are the same, so here it is.
From another angle, same result.
The statues and fountain are very complex. My favorite pieces are actually the small water spouts. They run on the sides of the fountain.
Not a very creative article, but in spite of my sarcasm I do thinks it’s an interesting piece.
Early every Saturday morning the local NYC stations played old safari adventure films. As a young boy this was fascinating stuff.
This is still fascinating stuff.
Except it’s not WPIX channel 11.
Note; if you enlarge the images you can see more Alligators just oou of sight. I could not get them all in the view finder.
Back side of Magnolia Cemetery.
This photograph has the markings of old development processes and a small amount of water stains. The shape also has a standard ‘barrel’ roll distortion from the old lens screwed on to the box camera.
I placed my watermark here so there is no question it’s a ‘fake’…besides the fact it’s digital.
I wanted to try it and what better subject than something that’s been exactly the same for 150+ years.
This is a scene I see played out often. I always have the same reaction.
Another in the series of the Great Egret Mating Dance.
I am an old school photographer who worked and learned using B&W. Now of course my medium of choice is color since I shoot wildlife and nature.
That said, a Great Egret is one of the most suitable for shooting Black and White. This time of year I take advantage of that.
The ultimate diving bird. These little guys can disappear under water, stay there, and come back up far, far, away.
They have timing down to the millisecond before a photographer pushes the shutter! In other words, we rarely get a clean shot.
No need for color here at all.
