Memorial Day – 2021

A day to remember the fallen and a day to wish for a more peaceful future.

From April 2016 while on a photo walk in my town.

Fujifilm FinePix S9900W

Same town, same day. I think it’s a hawk.

Reflecting on reflections – a favorite subject.

Bold reflection of the Fernandina Beach Post Office. Taken with a Fujifilm X-A10 with Canon FD 24mm f2.8 lens.

I think I enjoy the challenge and the opportunities presented by reflections when composing difficult shots. Should both subjects be in focus or only the primary subject? I think of photographing reflections as creating double exposures and I also view reflections as a way of seeing something new in an otherwise ordinary image.

Subtle reflections in a jewelry store window. Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island, Florida. Taken with a Fujifilm X-A10 with Canon FD 24mm f2.8 lens.
Fujifilm X-A10 with Canon FD 24mm f2.8 lens and Fotodiox adapter. There’s even reflections in this shot which I love to see.
Centre Street, Fernandina Beach, Florida. Reflections in a classic doorway.
Reflected buildings in the late afternoon sun. Amelia Island, Florida.
Natural reflections – the best kind. A summer sky over the salt marsh, Amelia River, Florida.

Buy Me A Coffee

If only we could see through walls, life would be…

Easier? Harder? Less private? Fun?

Which do you think? I pick…

There we go. If only we could see through the roof think of all the clouds we’d see.
A plane but not much else.
Move closer, change your perspective – see more.
The way some people see the world.
That’s better. Take a wider view of things – be more open (you’ll see more and be happier).
Peaceful sunrise along the Northeast Florida coast (Atlantic Ocean).

Fun!

Happy SUNday!

Our local municipal airport is getting a new terminal building – evoking the feeling that it’s a WWII U.S. Navy F4U Corsair (which during the war these airplanes were used to train Naval aviators at this airfield).

It’s taking wing!
