More Discovery

We continue the discovery theme. Seems I need to return to a photo site at least once because it takes reflecting on the inevitable disappointments and insights of the first visit. Then return visits offer up new possibilities, discoveries if you will, each time particularly when the light varies. Maybe I am, at least, making progress on what is now something like our sixth visit to Sheldon Church.
Saturday morning produced heavily misting conditions. Heavily footed in would have been a delight but what we got was just fine – soft shadows and softer backgrounds. So it’s time to see how this light guides the eye. We could get in shadows and under trees. This shot would not be possible on a clear day even if overcast. Maybe I’m making progress.

East Battery

It was a dark & stormy night . . .  Oops. No, not that. I have the wrong story. It wasn’t stormy. It wasn’t night. It was a bright and sunny morning. Nice one with clouds on the southern horizon which is unusual. And, never being one to leave well enough alone, I went to work. This is an infrared shot which means it started out pink-magenta then converted to high contrast black & white and then color toned. Why? Because it’s so much fun. Helps to have great material to work with.

St. Michaels

Creating a unique image of this much photographed church in the heart of Charleston is a challenge.  An oblique angle of a reflection in the window of City Hall plus the use of new software is my solution.  Out in the summer heat to catch this image and then dash back to the air conditioning.  Even sea breezes are not enough to keep one cool.

Gallery Night

The first Friday of the month is Gallery Night in Charleston and numerous galleries on Broad Street are open for viewing, offering wine and tempting treats.  It was a perfect opportunity to work on my project of photographing hands of the city.  I could not resist this photo as the artist painted from a snapshot of a model. Her choice of colors glowed. The painting will soon be hung for display in her gallery.
