Underneath Stearn’s Wharf
Today was a day of play, so I wandered down to Stearn’s Wharf this morning. I have been working with a beach theme for the photo of the day, and combined two photos for this one.
I went to Leadbetter Beach just a little bit after sunset. I missed the light I wanted, and what was left was fading fast. I found a couple walking the beach, grabbed a couple of shots, and hoped for the best! I decided to stop shooting, and just enjoy the night. I soon found myself mesmerized by the seductive power of the ocean. It was as if I was watching it breathe!
Photo of The Day – Shoes of Jason
I actually made it to East Beach during the afternoon to shoot. I’ve been shooting a lot at night, so it was a nice change. I wanted to play around with low angles, and happened to come across a pair of Vans sitting in the sand. As I was shooting, the owner of the shoes soon appeared, looking a bit perplexed! I guess I must have looked a bit strange taking pictures of his shoes! I told him about the project I’m working on, and he shared some of recent travel adventures! And, they were quite the adventures! Maybe I need to shoot more shoes!
365 Photo Challenge – Mannequins
I switched themes today. I decided to try something new this week. At first, I was going to do a storefront theme. I even had the place in mind that I wanted to start with. There is this fabulous wig store in Santa Barbara, and I have stopped by the storefront window many times. The mannequin heads are fascinating!
I ended up shooting the mannequins instead of the store! So, my theme of the week was born! “Mannequins”.
I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to work in color or black and white this week, so I did a version of each.
