A Study in Contrast   4 comments


Here is a little piece of Smithfield Reservoir north of Kansas City, Missouri. I wanted to do this in black and white, which is something I don’t normally do, because color just didn’t do it for me. I beefed up the contrast 100 percent and cropped out the extraneous part of the photograph that I originally thought more highly of. I believe I sharpened it just a bit also. I hope you enjoy it.

I don't know why, but every time I look at this, I think of Stan Laurel of Laurel and Hardy. Some may be too young to know who he was, but the team of Laurel and Hardy was among the most popular of Hollywood icons of their time.

These branches as fingers seem to be crying out, "Help! I'm drowning!" Well, okay, maybe that is a bit of a stretch. What's your caption?

One of favorite things to photograph is reflections in water. I don't know why. Perhaps it's the symmetry. I just know it looks cool. Maybe that's enough of a reason.

I was in a mood to just go driving one day this last summer and decided to drop by Pony Express Lake and see what I could see. It’s amazing to me that whenever there’s water, there’s picture-taking possibilities. I know, there’s picture-taking possibilities everywhere you go, but I just happen to like water for some reason. It’s so expressive.
