Ice But No Water

Ice But No Water

I was ready to leave City Feed, a store in Jamaica Plain, MA and wanted to get some water for my glass. This sign caught my eye. Is Jamaica Plain running out of 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.

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.

I was out looking at a public art exhibit at the Boston Harbor when I spotted this idyllic scene. I decided to take the shot thinking someone would find this beautiful. I guest it is.
