2014 Deck – Week 52

Another year, another 52 images for the project.  Almost thought I wouldn’t make it this year…  My fascination with Jhandi flags on the shore as well as my focus on seascapes has spurred some thoughts to the cohesion of images into proper collections…  My Oniabo collection is still taking shape and I hope that the new year will bear fruit in similar manner.

The last photo of the year exhibits the theme nicely, in colour, so it would not be a part of my Oniabo Collection, but it is a seascape with Jhandi flags at Lusignan.

After taking a series of images here, with both the Canon 60D and the Canon 6D, I then used my phone to snap one for Instagram, and I rather like that one!

2014 Deck – Week 51

One of the things I like about the seawall, is that you just never know what’s going to wash up (or out)  🙂

2014 Deck – Week 50

In week 50 of 2014 I took a lot of photos, however most of them were on a photo shoot for a family, who specifically asked that we (Fidal and I) don’t share publicly, I don’t do those types of shoots normally so I was looking forward to it, and I think I got a few nice ones 🙂

So since practically all my photos for that week were scratched I fell back on one I took that was during the shoot but not of the family 🙂

If it messes with your eyes, it’s doing the same thing to mine… cool!!

2014 Deck – Week 49

I normally try to get impacting photos for my Deck Project, but this one I wanted to include because of the message…

Our shorelines are collecting more and more garbage and it is getting more and more unsafe for our children.  In this season of giving, this season of Joy, let us think to the future, and with regard for our fellow man, with respect for our planet, do our little part in disposing of our garbage in a responsible way.

2014 Deck – Week 48

So, it’s not Abbey Road, but i like the little twist on the idea…  Something about these young ladies crossing the road made me want to snap the shot…

2014 Deck – Week 47

I don’t often do these types of shoots, but when I do I usually have fun, it allows me some experimentation and I get to be in a place that few would have seen before…  A new Bar.

My friend Diane asked me to take a few photos of a new Bar that she was going to run, well, sorta new, it was originally located at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, but has now been relocated to the Midtown Hotel, it’s Friendly’s Bar, and it’s pretty cool.

The nice thing was that she and Larry did not want people in the shots at this time (hopefully I get to go back to do some with people), so I got to be as free with my shots as I liked (and a couple free drinks)

2014 Deck – Week 46

I could have just kept on walking, but while I visit the seawall fairly often, scenes like this don’t occur with much frequency while I am there, and the juxtaposition that I noticed in walking could not be ignored, so I shot it, a few times…

In a small print or viewed small this won’t look like much, I really do have to set this one aside for a large print.

And yes, I did keep it in colour, shocking, isn’t it? 🙂
