Blast from the Past

I spent the night last night at a sleep center hooked up to electrodes. Therefore I'm replaying a couple of old favorite 35mm slides that I had posted on my other blog last year.


This photo is a pre-sunrise photo I took in Gulf Shores, Alabama in summer 1983. I've put a number of sunSET photos on the blog, but here is one from early morning; a rarity for me.


And another photo from the same trip to Gulf Shores, Alabama in 1983. The sand was so perfect and untouched that early in the morning, but needed a bit of something, so I put down a couple of shells I had in my pocket. I don't really know why I like this photo so much, it is contrived. But that's the way it is I guess. You like it or you don't. I do.

The top one is a great combination of dark clouds and light colored surf. A very dramatic photo!

That first shot is amazing. The mood in the light and shadows is so dramatic.

I love the second shot....it may look contrived because u have seen it being attempted by many photographers ...but it has an ageless quality to it :)
