On this Sunday several local organisations were hosting a nature event by the beach. Yesterday’s image showed a young girl all eager to collect stones on the beach and talk about them afterwards. Reality was it was hard for me to find anyone to photograph at all as it had been pouring down all morning.
I had dragged my own daughter along but she was not about to go collect any stones. Instead one of the sweet volunteers showed her a game with stones even my mother played when she was a child.
The lines of the building itself, The 8 House, are clean. All patios are designed the same and the same trees and green are planted. But they can’t keep people living here from displaying colourful plastic furniture.
The idea behind the 8 House is for it to function like a mountain village with houses perched on the hill sides and paths for people to walk through the village. I’ve been following the project from before they finished building it and have posted quite a few images by now of the clean and, to me, beautiful lines of the building. From tomorrow I’ll be sharing some images of what real life looks like at the 8 House.
Another straight forward B&W conversion in Lightroom 5. There’s something about the lack of colours in the fog with frosted surfaces that made me want to try to work with B&W a bit. On the other hand, the lack of colour makes what little is there all the more interesting – at least to me 🙂 I also fear I don’t know enough about how light works with B&W expressions so more practice is on my list.
On a fortunate morning in February, there was frost on the ground and fog in the air. I couldn’t get the kids to school fast enough, threw my camera in my car, and headed straight for the beach. I was hoping the fog would hold and it did. This is from the lawn behind the marina by the beach. The round doughnut looking things are orange benches.
