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.
My first attempt is here: http://quotidianhudsonriver.com/2014/09/26/9-26-14-weekly-photo-challenge-night/

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.
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
A world of textural difference

Not all creatures care…
The Walrus and the Carpenter
Walked on a mile or so,
And then they rested on a rock
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.
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.
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?
