Those of you who have been kind enough to follow the QH know that I tend to stay in the real (or at least near real) when it comes to my work. But, inspired by Vlad over at Wind Against Current, and his response to both this week’s photo challenge, Silhouettes, and Ailsa’s theme, Horizons, I went wandering through the archives and found this shot that I had started playing with when I shot it in 2011 and then dropped and picked up again in 2012 and then forgot about.
In 11 days Abigail goes off on her next great adventure, college. This is good and the way it is supposed to go but I do feel as if my world has turned into some weird Peter Max/Teletubbies land.
Ailsa’s Theme is: Horizons
The WP Weekly Photo Challenge is: Silhouettes. (WP’s real challenge this week is their unexplainable “fix” to the posting screen but that is another post.)
August 23, Duck Harbor, Wellfleet MA

Other views. Other textures
Now you didn’t think I would leave this challenge without at least one shot of The Hudson, did you? The texture in this picture is both from the river and from a very simple technique of slow shutter speed, 1/15 of a second, and a simple rotation of the camera body.
Some other textures:
I went to see the Old 97s (set photos here) and The Devil Makes Three (set photos there) at Lincoln Center Out Of Doors today. During the Old 97s set I took this shot that I think hits the texture mark. A note on technique. I turned the photo black and while and added a little sepia tone in Lightroom.
Some other textures to contemplate:
The Zoetrope, or "Wheel of Life," is an instructive Scientific Toy, illustrating in an attractive manner the persistence of an image on the retina of the eye; by revolving the cylinder by the hand, and looking through the openings, the images passing rapidly before the eye are blended, so as to give the figures the motions of life in the most natural manner.
