Sea Island, Ga…. sometime in the late 80’s. My wife and I were spending a long weekend celebrating our wedding anniversary when I spotted this bird sitting on the dock piling. Those were film days, long before digital. You had to compose, run some calculations through your head, set the camera and…. wait until the film is processed and proofed to know if you got your shot. I was able to fire off 3 frames before the bird took offense at me being there, this was the middle image.
This photo was shot 13 years ago with a early design digital camera. I know it was taken on the island of Maui, Hawaii and I think, pretty sure, seem to remember it was a night shot. But, it’s digital and we live in the world of Photoshop. Maybe it was a sunset, or sunrise and I was goofing around some years ago in Photoshop. Guess I’ll have to check the RAW file but I kinda like it as a night image, full moon shining on the sea….
As the snowstorm approaches your mind drifts back to olden days, a long long time ago to a warm day on a faraway beach….
The weather is cold here at home, snow showers and windy. I’m not getting much done, daydreaming about somewhere the sun is shining and the weather is warm.
I found the end of a road one day… it was a hot hazy summer day and road ended at a wooden pier overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.
A faint smell of salt in the air with a few lazy gulls gliding around, yeah, I think I have spring fever.
