Moody Contrast

There are times when I like to set my camera on back & white, and make images when there are distinct contrasts in light. When outside, I look for nice clouds. Images like these can portray various moods and feelings. Here are some examples I made recently while standing alongside the Dan River in Danville, Virginia.

Back Road Gifts

As I drive around narrow back roads in SW Virginia and adjacent rural North Carolina, I often find what I’ll call photo treasures from the past. When one of them has something of special interest to my wife (like the Barn Quilt in the last image) I’m happier than I would have been otherwise, because I love sharing these sorts of “photo gifts” with her and others.

End of Summer

Here’s a mix of photos I made recently that while still depicting a summertime effect, show it’s about time for cooler Fall weather, with an entirely different mix of possible photographs to record. Lots to look forward to I’m sure.
