9-27-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime (Que Sera Sera)

Nighttime

Told you I would be back.  I love the night, I always have. I love the different feel, the texture of the air, the shadows, the mystery.  I also like the night because no one else is around to interrupt your train of thought, to demand answers to questions you have answered already, to tell you that this project is a crisis and that email must be answered. Eh, I am a little bit grouchy today. Too many people wanting things, answers etc. Que Sera Sera.

Anyway, I love the night and I especially love the night on Blackfish Creek in Wellfleet, Cape Cod, MA.

8-26-14 Glory Days – Bookends

These are perhaps my two favorite photographs of the summer. This is the way they came from the camera. I spent a lot of hours getting these shots. I believe I featured a different version of them earlier this year but I kept returning and finally got what I want.  I will probably work them a bit and may show them again or not.

8-8-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

This weeks challenge is: Texture. (You knew that)

A little change in ISO and a little change in shutter speed certainly changes the texture of the water in Blackfish Creek.

ISO 6400 – f/5.3 – Shutter: 1/2 second

ISO 140 – f/5.6 – Shutter 15 seconds

Not all creatures care…

RSJohnson_1408053381

 

The Walrus and the Carpenter
Walked on a mile or so,
And then they rested on a rock
Conveniently low:
And all the little Oysters stood
And waited in a row.

“The time has come,” the Walrus said,
“To talk of many things:
Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–
Of cabbages–and kings–
And why the sea is boiling hot–
And whether pigs have wings.

Lewis Carroll

7-26-14: Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’

The challenge is something you love. It doesn’t actually have to be anything to do with summer but, why not.  This is from Wellfleet, Massachusetts, a place I truly love.
