This is JJ playing in the river on vacation. I love the sun on his back, shining on his hair, the bokeh of the glistening water. I'm not that great at converting to black and white, but I like how this one came out.
Also speaking of Black and White...my local Center for the Arts (for which I am a board member) is hosting a member only show this month called, "Basically Black and White". I entered two submissions, mostly because it was free and I felt obligated as a board member. I told them they were not allowed to hang my pieces next to the pro photographer, because its obvious I have a long way to go.
But, for your viewing pleasure, here are my two submissions:
Palmetto State (8 x 10 framed out to 11 x 14)
This wasn't the photo I wanted to submit. (The one I did, when I enlarged it, it didn't look as good, and then the frame I had was horizontal not vertical) I considered not submitting anything at all, but tossed this one in there at the last minute. Much to my surprise, it received a lot of complements at the opening reception.
And the second,
First Snow: This one is printed on Metallic Paper (11 x 14 framed to 16 x 20)
