You can see that I don't take many pictures of people. But here's one I really like. This picture of friends Sean and Ellen was taken last October on our trip to Italy. We stayed in a beautiful villa along the Amalfi Coast. And though it was a little cool for me, Sean braved the infinity pool, which is where he is standing in this photo. I like the mood of this because it reminds me of how beautiful, calm and relaxing the villa was. I also like that Sean has his hat on.
This photo was taken along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. What a wonderful drive! We were there in the winter so there wasn’t much traffic, which allowed us to stop when we saw something that I wanted to take a picture of. I like this photo a lot and spent some time on it getting it aligned properly.
Here’s another one from our travels. This photo was taken in 2010 on a trip we made to Scotland. These boats are on the Isle of Mull. I think they leave them there for photographers like me to ooh and aah over. I love Scotland.
Sunflowers are probably my favorite flower and I love them in all their phases. To me, this one looks like it is just waking up from a long nap.
And finally, here’s a photo I took at Three Sisters Sanctuary in Goshen, Massachusetts, on one of the field trips Carrie and I took. This is a great place to wander around with a camera. I highly recommend it if you are in the area. In this photo, I love the juxtaposition of the wild vines and other natural growth against the relative fineness of the stained glass window. The Unexpected…
Are these my ten “best” photos? Probably not. Well, maybe… Photography is very personal and very subjective. I suspect that to me, these are the best because they all invoke wonderful things and good times in my mind. But maybe I will change my mind tomorrow when new things happen in my life.
By the way, we are still waiting for the snow to start in earnest. We are supposed to get 8 plus inches. Here’s hoping that they misread this storm and it will all blow out to sea.
