No boat work today. That’s scheduled for tomorrow. I spent most of the morning photographing my wife’s art, but was only able to keep half the images. I’m still learning how to do this, so I make mistakes that don’t show up until I upload them to the computer for editing. If they are out of focus, all the “sharpening” in the world isn’t going to fix it, so I deleted all of those. You would think in the age of autofocus that this wouldn’t be a problem. AF doesn’t really work for photographing art at this quality level, so I just need to learn where to focus each painting, and what detail to look at while I’m doing it.
We took a walk in the late afternoon and I caught a few images – again, about half were out of focus, but I still got some that are interesting enough to share. First is from our side of the water, looking just past our house over the creek.
The next photo was taken a mile from our house on the bay-side of the creek – just east of where we live. Swans winter over in this area and canvas the waterfront for food.
I was late afternoon and the light was that golden yellow.
