Last week’s attempt at abstract expressionism didn’t work out too well.
I think the folks who print the paper may have wondered if Old Mitch got into the mushrooms again.
I actually received a phone call from a “friend” who asked me if I had any more of those photos of spilled coffee .... And if I did, to please keep them safely filed!
It wasn’t that bad a photo, really. It was more colorful and vibrant on the newspaper’s website. Online images often look better.
Oh well. As the song says, “Sometimes you’re the window, and some times you’re the bug.”
Last week we got squished!
This week I have chosen more conservatively: a realistic object surrounded by an interesting reflection. Not so complicated.
The rowboat and its oars provide a familiar context for the reflected swirls of light-holding ripples. Its another example of dynamic activity we often see along our shores — a wonderful continuing dance between water and all it touches.
To me, the neat thing about this image is how the boat mixes with light.
A photo freezes motion, preserving a sense of movement and anticipation. It’s challenging without long exposure.
Perhaps, if you survive my complicated gibberish, you can enjoy the photo. At least this one doesn’t look like spilled coffee!
