Here are some shadows on the laminated bow of  an old, freshly painted wooden dinghy.

I don’t even remember where I took this photo but I know it was in Europe in 1992 and it was taken with Kodak ISO 3200 black and white film.  It’s not too grainy considering the low light, fast film, and scanned negative.

Lamppost – City Park



Truth be told, I do not like winter as much as I used to.  I am starting to understand why so many retired people flee Canada for sunnier climates during the winter.  However it is a great time of year to take photos with the low sun, long shadows and strong contrast.

Shadows on a Yellow Wall

When my wife and I went to Puerto Vallarta I was out on the deck waiting for her to get changed for dinner and this is what I saw.

Not much to this photograph.  I just liked the way the sun was falling across the door and the fact that one rarely sees this color.

Elephant Carving

My wife has this little elephant carving that is only about 2 inches tall.  Since I can’t afford the helicopter ride over the savanna to get a similar shot with real elephants I guess this one will have to do.

John Deere – Shadow of the Steering Wheel

It was a little precarious standing on the fender of this antique John Deere tractor at the Log Barn near Enderby but there’s just something I like about shadows and vivid colors so I took the chance.  What a risk taker you’re probably thinking.

Yellowstone Bus Handle

While I was waiting for my wife and daughter to look through the gift shops at Yellowstone park I noticed this odd shadow cast by the door handle of one of the antique Yellowstone buses.  Sometimes I like to take photographs that you cannot immediately tell what the subject is but if you look closely enough you can figure it out.

Orangey Guy – My Late Orange Platty

I really liked the way the sun was filtering through the blinds and figured my bright orange platty would look great in one of our blue bubble glasses so I combined it all for this photo which would become a memorial shot of my deceased fish.  I hope his final trip down to the lake via the water treatment plant was a good one.



Note: no fish were harmed during the taking of this photo.  The death was a result of another incident at a later time.
