I shot a bracketed exposure of the bridge during a light snowfall.
It was a cold winter afternoon. Much too cold for outside shooting. I broke out my 35mm macro lens and played in the kitchen for a bit.
While visiting family over the holiday weekend, I made a couple shots of this remarkable ceramic bench that was created by our sister-in-law, Lisa Pesha Fremont of Chicago. This is so cool! Just look closely at all the "figures within figures" contained in the detail of this piece. Lisa worked on this over a two year period and was partially influenced by Park Güell by Antoni Gaudí in Barcelona and Niki de Saint Phalle's Tarot park in Italy. Below are a couple more shots of it.
We were in Grand Rapids MI last week to experience ArtPrize 2013. This is a shot from the upper balcony at the former Grand Rapids Public Museum. I did some post-processing to isolate the green.
So... you stand on a pier on a dark night. You point your camera towards the city lights across the bay. You set it up for a loooong, sloooww exposure. Then, when you trip the shutter you simultaneously twist the zoom collar on your lens. Ok, I was nearing the end of a long drive, I wasn't happy with the moon shots I originally stopped at this pier for, so I said "what the heck - let's have some fun!"
