You Gotta Be There
Quick post today - on my way to Dan Burkholder's Iphone Artistry seminar at Soho Photo on White Street in New York. Need to learn a few more Iphone tricks from the master.
While in Florida I had an attraction to this one particular beach. I returned three times to shoot the sunrise and twice for the sunset. I was hypnotized by the water splashing into the rocks (depending on the tide) which created this mystical atmosphere in which to make images. I have always had this attraction to water as I grew up by the ocean in Atlantic City (gambling had not yet ruined this victorian seaside community).
Today's image is from that beach in Florida - this particular image jumped off the screen at me - not much work done to this - it is very close to the original high resolution capture - one of those moments.
