It's been a busy, beautiful fall here, and aside from the pile of images I'm sitting on from our travels, I haven't had a lot of quality time behind the camera. But we have not been entirely undocumented around here. Below, a few favorites from October and November.
I stood still for a while and waited to see who would walk into the frame.
Our last week of hard light. I found some hiding among the trees.
Please check out the work of the other amazing photographers participating in Photo 52 by following the links around the circle. Next up is my talented friend with an eye for delicate beauty, Linda Hooper.
Week seven of Photo 52. This week is the third in our month of backlight, and while my post is perhaps more personal than usual it partially explains my general absence from the blog and the camera. Our little guy just turned three, and his grandma just turned three plus a few, so the family has been in town to celebrate. We took a trip up to Storm King Art Center and enjoyed a beautiful afternoon filled with backlight, fun and love.
Please continue around the blog circle to see what my very talented friend Lisa Rigazio has been up to this week. She has an amazing eye for texture and contrast, and uses it to bring a little edginess to her work, be it an urban scene or her two darling girls.
Blinded by the light...
Week six of Photo 52, and week two of backlighting. I am taking a class at ICP with fellow blog circle participant Justine Knight and our assignment this week involved following a stranger and seeing where he or she led you. The images from this exercise generally range from bad to terrible since stalking is not something I have much experience with.
At one point on my walk, as I tried to put a little distance between myself and my chosen subject, I noticed that after a week of bad timing, bad health and bad light, the sun was creating a beautiful fall glow through the just-turning trees. So I stopped for a moment, aimed my camera upward, then hustled off again so as not to lose my unsuspecting muse.
