Pure WheelPure WheelThere something about a white sky that I like about photos. Perhaps is the way I was taught how to use negative space in architecture to affect moods. That puts in in good stead to start applying it in photography. It is always in the back of a photographers mind when they are composing. The more you do it the less you have to think about what you are doing. It just sort of becomes natural to you. I am not sure where I am on that scale but I like to think that it is nearly natural. But if you stop thinking about composition, then what will happen?

Far from Brooklyn

March 05, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I perfectly timed my trip to New York to coincide with Independence Day. I had the thought to watch the fireworks, which were on the East side of Manhattan this year, from Brooklyn and get some great pictures of Manhattan in the background. Unfortunately things sometimes don’t go to plan, but this went so far from the plan that out whole evening changed. We attempted to walk over Brooklyn Bridge and settle in the park but we quickly found out that the bridge was closed as were the metro stations. We ended up watching the fireworks from a closed highway with thousands of other people and no space for a tripod. Couldn’t have worked out any differently if I tried.
