The Fish Market

35mm black and white film. A little patience paid off here. After buying some fresh red snapper and grouper filets here I waited outside with my camera knowing that eventually someone would stand in the right place inside and make a nice silhouette. As a lucky bonus the boat entered the left side of the frame at exactly the same time creating a nice balance with the light colored marina in the background on the right side of the frame.


Mountain Sunset

As I continue to scan some of my old slides to present here in my journal I’ve come to realize that I miss the rich, saturated colors that I could get by deliberately underexposing Ektachrome film. With the right subject matter, a light to moderately underexposed slide looked terrific right out of the camera. No processing software necessary, just shine some light through it and enjoy.

Winter Moon

I never pass up an opportunity to photograph the moon when it has a ring around it. I saw this ring last night so I grabbed a camera and strolled out into the neighborhood to find a good vantage point to shoot it. I don’t know why, but ever since I was a child I was fascinated with the phenomenon of lunar halos and now I’m happy that I have the means to capture their special beauty and share.
