Herring Warehouses, No.7


PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNAL: I reached the main shed of the complex as the sun was setting. Had it been a perfect shooting night? I guessed so, but my calling had been inside. Outside the low light caught the windows of lobster boats anchored for the night, and across Bass Harbor the town of Bernard was already in shadow. From the end of the wharf (in front of me here) most of my shots would be into the bright sun, challenging if not impossible to shoot, but the truth was I was almost done here, and the challenge of the light was appealing.


P.S. It's not too late to take advantage of Blurb's 20% discount on either Best of Today's: 2009 or Farm. You'll have to register as a Blurb member, add my book to your cart, and then enter the code, BLURBDISCOUNT, in all caps when asked.

A cracking series of shots Emery, difficult to choose a winner, all equally compelling and worthy of prolonged viewing and exploration of not only the image but the technique also.

Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year .. Ed

Chagall wouldn't have done better...

Ted said...

Chagall! Hmmm, an interesting thought. Perhaps I shall have to add a few upside down cows & milkmaids.

Thank you. This seems to have been the favorite of the series of a number of people.
