Seems like a good time to contemplate the powers of nature. Ansel Adams was at home here with the dominating clouds above snowy ledges and dark cliffs. For photographers, Yosemite presents a pallet of tones from the white whites to the sky filtered to black and everything in-between. It’s tempting not to try to breath in the fresh air of the place from this image.

Welcome to a Pac-Man Convention, a lily pond at the Grounds for Sculpture in Trenton, NJ. The pads seem to float in space until you see the underwater rocks for perspective. A lot of visual excitement here if you look closely, without the distraction of color. Enjoy.

Since we are all photographers at heart, I hope you won’t mind my occasional intrusion with a photo and caption. My own thoughts about an image might spark an idea for your own work or play.
If you’re from the Southwest, you have probably known about the church Georgia O’Keeffe made famous in Rancho de Taos. Every photo or painting of this monument is different. I think my image speaks to the contrast between heavy masses and soft, almost feminine, curves. It’s amazing something so organic could be man-made. I like it in black and white because it accentuates the lines and shadows that give it such character. Enjoy. And Happy Thanksgiving.
