Locked and No

Locked and No

This photo was taken at Peters Valley Crafts Center near the blacksmith studio. I like playing with words in a effort to truncate and/or partially show them. This is the case with this sign. The full sign reads No Smoking.

This photo was taken outside of the blacksmith shop at Peters Valley Craft Center. It turned out to be a wonderful area for shooting.

Blowing Bubbles

I’m digging into my archives. This was taken in front of the Fine Arts Museum in Taichung, Taiwan. Lots of people gather here to enjoy talking and playing. It has alway been a great place for taking photos of people.

Water

Water

As I mentioned earlier, I’ve been taking a photography class at Peters Valley Craft Center taught by Richard Ritter. Today’s assignment was to take photos of water. I found a rock to sit on, put my Canon D600 on a tripod set low to the water and set to Live View Mode so I could see the water through the LCD monitor. I then set the aperture and then changed the speed and ISO settings with each picture. This photo was taken at f 6.3, 1/1000 at 800 ISO. This is the first time that I took time to play with the various modes. This was particularly true of manual.

I took this photo at Peters Valley Crafts Center where my wife, Jane Ingram Allen is teaching a class in sculptural paper making. I’m taking a photography class taught by Richard Ritter with a focus on composition. Although this was not part of an assignment I could not miss the opportunity of taking the photo with so many highlights.

I took this photo from the High Line in Chelsea. I found it interesting because of the depth of cars vertically and horizontally.
