This was taken driving around in the everglades.
Not one of my best however I felt’ I should put something up given it’s been over a month since the last update.
I’m in Norway right now. In a cool side note, jet lag combined with perpetual sunlight (23h) really screws with your internal clock. My clock says not tired (since I just slept), my brain says go out and explore while it’s daylight, common sense says it’s the middle of the night, you should be sleeping. This whole thing is compounded by not having a watch therefore not knowing what time I went to bed, got up or what time it is right now.

Down the beach from the resort/marina we’re staying at is an old abandoned resort. On a day off I took a walk down there and started to play with a 10 stop filter I bought a couple months ago. This was the result.
All I’ve done digitally is the black and white conversion. Everything else was done in camera with one exposure.
I can’t think of a suitable title for this photo.Show Comments (1)
In my last post, I
complained explained how I’m working ridiculous hours which affects my ability to post regularly. The bonus of my job is the ablilty to capture photo’s that others wouldn’t necessarily be exposed to. I see a lot of sunsets. Seriously, a lot of sunsets. You could say I watch pretty much every one. I see a lot of sunburst effects. I love the effect they give and yet few translate into a decent photo.
This one I got lucky. We were cruising some guests through what has to be one of the best channels in the Bahamas. The run is made all the more surreal by the fact that we were doing it at around 55 kts (~100 km/h) through water so shallow and clear you think you are flying. I had my camera with the hopes of somehow capturing the essence of this run. I don’t think it’s possible to do so in one photo. This one however presented it’s self at the end of the run. Respect to Nikon for their vibration reduction. This photo could have never happened otherwise. At a relative wind speed of 65+kts in a boat, it’s like trying to photograph the world from a paint-shaker.Leave a reply
So I had a short hiatus there. I just started a new job and was thrown in the deep end right away resulting in three 130 hour work weeks back to back. Anyways, I’m back. The update schedule is probably going to be sporradic for a bit but i’m hoping to average 4-5 photos a month.
This is one I’ve been holding on to for a while. It’s rather fitting as that’s a back end of my last job. As is the theme some of my more recent posts, i’m not quite happy with the way some of these have been turning out. I think i’m relying too much on post processing and too little on subject composition. It’s something i’m going to be working on.Leave a reply
It’s late. We have to start early tomorrow. Boats don’t follow normal hours. I’m sitting at my computer reading the blog of a friend who has left everything behind and become nomadic. I’m jealous but could never enter that world. I’m too far removed from the focus. Still, the idea apeals to me. Then I see this photo I took last summer and immediatly it fits. I’m in Miami, surrounded by wealth and vanity. This photo is my escape. If it was to go nomadic, this would be my method.
Everyone here is loving Miami.
I can’t wait to leave.Leave a reply
Every day I get to drive by two shrimp fishing boats that are quite obviously no longer being maintained. They just sit at the dock moving with the tides. I’m guessing that this has something to do with the collapse of the gulf shrimp stock combined with the cheap importation of South American farmed shrimp.
I see a lot of boats worldwide that have been abandoned and are slowly rusting away. For some reason, fishing boats always look different.Leave a reply
