One is the Loneliest Number

Another Directors Challenge, this time the subject is "One is the Loneliest Number"
I tried some self portraits in different landscapes.
But my original idea is the long exposures of Brandon at a summer festival. Brandon stood very still as people flowed around him.

Dance !

I've been inspired by environmental portraits of dancers. The art of dance and photography combined is very cool. Fortunately I know a great dancer! My niece Alyssa :)

Behind The Glass

Another year at the Welland Camera Club and 4 new categories for the "Directors Challenge". I love these specific challenges. It really forces me outside my box.
The first category is Behind The Glass. I've always liked cityscapes that were shot through rainy windows and was fooling around with those ideas before. What I really like is when the drops of water are sharp and the background is just blurry enough that it takes you a second to recognize what it is. With Brandon's help here is what we came up with.

Back Cove

These are some images from Back Cove, its a great little spot we found in Cherry Hill Nova Scotia. Found this spot one evening and after talking to a local there we realized the the wharf we were standing on was scheduled to be demolished and replaced that day.
I guess the construction crew was delayed by a day for the start of the project. I figured they would be starting early the next day for sure. Got up early and took these before the crews got there.

Gabarus Fishing Boat

So we just got back from a vacation in Cape Breton & mainland Nova Scotia. Great times spent with family and friends.

So many images to go through, here is one that stood out to me while the cameras were downloading. it was very cloudy and gloomy this day, which made for some great skies.

Much more to come !
