Today’s picture is all about light and shape.  It’s lit from the inside of a cover over a building.

Photo Friday: One Man’s Ordinary

February 9, 2018

The biggest issue with many photographers is they get complacent with their surroundings and don’t think they can find anything “interesting” to shoot.  I read an article during the 80’s that helped me through this problem. It said that what one man finds uninteresting, another finds amazing.

Don’t allow yourself to think you have nothing to shoot, because it’s all interesting to someone.

First Look Photo: City Architecture

February 7, 2018

Thanks to the wonderful website 52Frames.com I have been looking at some of the architecture of Portland.  I really like the looks of the city building, in the tower, at night.  I especially like the way the arches are lit up.

Wanting to try something different, I decided to photograph a flag next to a building, from the base of the flag pole.

Thanks to the biting cold in Portland, Maine steam rises from the tops of buildings, making for very interesting photographic opportunities.

Strangely enough, I love winter pictures in black and white.  This shot was taken during the second snow storm to hit the Portland area this season.

The best thing about living so close to the ocean is all the things you can see from fishing industries.
