Back in September I had the opportunity to take photos out on the field at a hot air balloon race. As soon as I took this picture of one of the burners, I knew I wanted it in black & white. Yes, the burnished copper fittings were interesting, but in a way it just looked dirty.
And make sure no one turns the gas on while your looking at it close up :)
Speaking of black & white, I would be remiss if I didn't mention my friend Mark over at Musings in Monocrome (http://www.highton-ridley.co.uk/blog/2009/10/october-freebie-prize-draw-now-open.html). He is once again giving away three signed, mounted prints in the month of October. You really should visit his gallery (http://www.highton-ridley.co.uk), choose your favorite and recommend it to others. Then, head over to his blog and let him know you want in on the giveaway. You can see all the details here.
There are many times I view things as though I were looking though the lens of my camera. Now, I'm ready to share with you my views of the world around us.
I've said for years that if I could "do it all over again", I would have choosen photography as my career path. By the time I discovered my passion, I already had a college education that led to a good paying job. Giving that up to become a struggling artist is not appealing. Besides, I like what I currently do.
But I still wonder, what if I had chosen a different path?
I actively seek comments & critiques/suggestions. If you've got compliments, I'll take those too :)
