Pain – Squashed

Pain - Squashed

One of the ideas that came out of the photography class I took from Richard Ritter at Peters Valley Craft Center was to list topics that can be used when going out for a walk. These could include: circles, rectangles, pain, sadness, static, dynamic, etc. You cut them up into cards and put them in a bowl. I selected “Pain” today. Here is one of the photos I took. I’d appreciate your critical review of this and all my photos.

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.

Making Paper with Golden Water

Making Paper with Golden Water

I’ve been at Peter’s Valley Crafts Center in the Delaware Gap National Recreation Area. My wife Jane Ingram Allen is teaching a paper making class that covers paper making around the world. This photo was taken in the evening as the sun was setting and the light from the setting sun was streaming in the window and lighted the water that was falling through the paper making screen. It was one of those chance situations.
