  1. There are so many things I like about your photography.

    I like the way that you blend shawdows into the framework of your pictures.

    Your camera angles and the focusing effects (closest object not the focus, all objects the same focus, etc,) on long distance shots are great.

    I love the way you tell a story with your back shots. That one with the little boy running away was priceless. I laughed at that one a few times.

    The picture titled “merry go round” was good. The out of focus swirling effect was on par.

    When looking at the pictures of your children, I feel the joy. I have assumed the older gentleman is your father.

    Good work, I mean that.

    I want to see some shots of items growing in a garden. You know, like long corn stalks, large bunches of collard greens or rows of okra. Maybe even a raccoon stalking a tomatoe patch or another delicacy.

    That reminds me, Do you do many night shots? It appears that shadows and angles are your thing and maybe that would be lost in darkness?

  2. Again, thanks so much Carey. One of the things I love about B&W photography is shooting shadows. I know these kinds of shots can be a little cliche, but they are still fun to take.

    Re: the shots of people—I try to be conscious of folks’ privacy and so do not generally put images where you can make out faces on the web. But it’s nice because the back shots and similar ones end up being interesting in their own right.

    I have, I think, two night shots on my photostream. One is “Merry Go Round” and the other is something like “View from the End of the World.” Night shots are hard to do well with my basic digital camera. But maybe santa **cough**myhusband**coughcough** will bring me a more advanced camera this holiday season.

    BTW, I had a whole little essay that went along with this slideshow that I was going to finish and add later. But now I think I will just let the images stand on their own. 🙂
