A mixed bag of images for you today. I like this landscape image of the lock and dam. I’ve seen similar captures on touristy post cards so I thought I would try to duplicate the look. It was such a gorgeous day at the river I really hated to leave.
Most of the dam doors were closed and the water was pretty choppy because of the wind so it made a nice looking scene. Maybe I can sell these to some of the tourist shops. 🙂
There were a couple of guys who had climbed down on the rocks to fish in the waterway between the lock and the shore line. I’ve seen lots of people fish there before. I captured this image with the idea of converting it to black and white.
When I do a black and white conversion I like to capture a rough finish almost like an old film version with a bit of grain showing. Some people do not like that look but I find it appealing on certain images.
Finally this image of a woman jogging along the walk way beside the river. Jeanne and I were talking and I didn’t notice her coming to us until she was right there. She went down to the lock and then turned around and headed back. I shot several images of her as she jogged off into the sunset. 🙂
My original thought, since I was shooting into the sun was to make a silhouette of the runner but the more I looked at the image I decided to do a grungy black and white. Again some people do not like this type of image and I understand that.
Well that’s it for today. Enjoy your Tuesday and thanks for stopping by. Be careful.
