Black And White #6
These two photographs were also taken when we were sitting on the Melbourne Causeway and waiting on the Space Shuttle Atlantis to launch.
This family was enjoying some leisurely fishing, and their hard shadows in the intense sun begged to be a black and white photo.
I added the second one to show you how intense the sun was last Friday. The way it overpowers this photo was just how it felt to try to see the shuttle launch which happened about 90 degrees to the right. Most everyone had a hand up to block the light from the left. Sunglasses only helped marginally.
It was a beautiful day and a spectacular launch despite the sun's trying to upstage the shuttle.
