Yesterday was the annual "Pelican Shoot" for one of the photo groups I belong to. Every year there seem to be fewer pelicans. But it was a beautiful day, good day to be out, good day to enjoy with friends. The pelicans weren't particularly active on this day. Nonetheless, a few decent images came out of the excursion. Here is one that amused me because of the juxtaposition of the two pelicans:
I call this one "TWO HEADS ARE BETTER THAN ONE".
There hasn't been a blog entry since the end of October. And there is a reason for that. While my wife and I were traveling in October, she began to feel unwell. We, as planned, returned home at the end of October. Within 10 days the reason for her feeling unwell was diagnosed. On November 28 she died as a result of an aggressive brain tumor. Is it a surprise that I did not feel like putting up pictures for a while?
Now I am adjusting to life alone. Photography is a good thing because it keeps me busy. Plus photography colleagues has been supportive. So here is the first picture of 2018:
My daughter provided an amaryllis during the Christmas Holiday. I call this "Out of the Depths".
This image was compiled from 20 images, stacked and blended in Photoshop, in order to obtain the depth of field desired. It is not science fiction. It's real!
Please enjoy and leave comments.
At the beach and being somewhat abstract:
Here the original image is over a wave coming in on the beach. To that I added color and brought out the detail in the wave. Te name of this composition is "Meadow, Mountain, Sky":
I had stopped to look at something at a large wall painting in the Los Angeles Arts District when I sensed something protruding from the wall right beside me. It's great that somebody did this, but don't you wonder why?
