7-17-14 Throwback Thursday

I don’t do throwback Thursday. Never have. But recently my mother dug an old piece of my history up and I shared it on several forms of social media. So I figured, let’s go back half a decade to Cape Cod in July 2009 and watch the oyster farmers at work.

What did my mother dig up? I am sure this will be familiar to some of you…(personal information is blacked out). Without looking! Who knows what 1-H means?

I am trying an experiment tonight. You will know the video slide show worked (click to play) if you see no further typing from me.

7-13-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Relic

RELIC:

an object surviving from an earlier time, especially one of historical or sentimental interest.
  • a part of a deceased holy person’s body or belongings kept as an object of reverence.
  • an object, custom, or belief that has survived from an earlier time but is now outmodeD
We went to the Wellfleet Flea Market this morning. I saw lots and lots of relics – well not very many parts of a deceased holy person’s body – but lots of others. My favorite was this one:

Here are some other relics:
Okay – the World Cup is starting – I’m out!

7-12-14 Street? Travel? Tourist Brochure?

I talked briefly yesterday about the “The Photographic Tools For Travel Photography” taught by David H Wells at ICP. He truly is a remarkable teacher.  If he is doing a class or workshop in your area, take it. You can find his photo site here:  http://davidhwells.com/ and his blog/educational site HERE: http://thewellspoint.com/

One thing David strongly recommended is to ask fellow photographers to give you their edit of your work.  So I am asking you, my readers to jump in!

As I said yesterday we all, David, the class, and myself thought my work bordered or was street photography. As it happens I am in Wellfleet and thought I would ask your opinion. Which of the following do you think are street and which travel? Comments below or back channel are both appreciated.

Travel or street these young women should not be doing this. It is completely destructive of the dunes.

06-13-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra Extra

Today was an Extra day all around. Friday the 13th AND a full moon?  What’s up with that? Anyway the moon put me in mind of this Cape Cod extra. The shot was lined up and ready to go and suddenly the fog thinned slightly…

True the temperature was only around 60 and the wind was kicking up but It is the unofficial start of summer they tell me and the Atlantic beckoned…
