The Carpenter’s Tools

Every so often, I take photos, then never get around to looking at them until long after… I think I still owe someone some wedding photos… oops!  Good thing I don’t do this as a paying job.

Anyway, I took about ten shots of this during the third week of 2012, a few before Vishal put the level next to the tape and a few after.  I felt that there was something there, but don’t think I got what it was… yet, I went back to this today and processed this one…   three years later, I’m regretting not trying a few other angles and perspectives that occur to me now… I’ve learnt a bit since then, hopefully I get to put what I’ve learnt into practice 🙂  Going back to these images, reminds me of what I did, what I didn’t do, what I could do, and keeps me thinking about the next time I come across a similar scene and what I might do 🙂

2011 Deck – Week 25

This week, the seawall continues its pull on me, when the “feeling” for photography is not with you, go somewhere that relaxes you, even if just for a few minutes.  A short walk along the wall and you either come away relaxed or relaxed and with a few photos that were worth the walk  🙂

This week’s shot may not be the best technically, but it captured a “moment”, and that’s what I liked about it.  People go to the seawall for many reasons, one of the customary ones is exercise, you feel the fresh air blowing over you and you feel rejuvenated, and you can run or walk, and like this guy, exercise your wrists  🙂
