July 6th Show 307/365
What have I been up to this month? I think I'm supposed to be up to something purposely, but I haven't. BUT if I take a little scroll thru my images I can see a couple things that have been driving the bus. Funny I'm on the bus, but I have no clue where it's going. Maybe that's not so funny.
My favorite thing about summer is having days with long light. I struggle (and bitch, moan and complain) all thru winter. The darkness takes a big toll. This time of year I enjoy going out after dinner and shooting images until the sun goes down.
This gives me a chance to work in that "golden hour" which I so love. Over the year I have tried to be better about making images work outside of the golden hour, but during these last few weeks, I have embraced it treating myself to the gold whenever the sun makes itself available.
So, sun in the golden hour-that's what's been driving the bus. Can I get a life-long ticket for this thing?
Red Dress 315/365
(She had no idea how perfect it was she was in red-nor did she know that I was taking her photo)
(It's been really hot. I'm the only one not complaining. People head to the beach in the evening to walk near the breeze from the ocean)
(Testing my everything looks good in golden light theory....maybe not chain link fences)
Drakes Island 316/365
I'm very pleased with this last image. Think it would be worth entering in a photo contest or something? Let me know what you think.
And that's it! Golden Hour. Awesome. Powerful. Warm. Do NOT tell me how many weeks it will be until winter is knocking at the door. As my Aunt Lois likes to say "don't rush the season".
Thanks for taking a peek at my 3rd Thursday images. It was a bit of a photo dump. Sorry about that.
Thanks to awesome hostess Brenda too.
