Six photos of an Evening

Updated: Dec 20, 2018

I was down in Colonial Beach for the evening so I went out and made some photos. BTW, I am trying to say that I make photos and not that I take them. It has been pointed out to me that by looking at it that way, you are making yourself more a part of the process that a person that just happened by and stole a moment.

I have been looking over the essays of Brook Jensen from Lenswork Magazine. He is advocating a number of different ways to set up and explore projects in photography. He suggests (as many have before him) that one should start looking at the habit of photography as a series of projects. Some projects can be long term, some can be short term and some may only be a few photos. I took his advice and decided to collect 6 photos of the time I spent at the beach a few days ago.

I was particularly enamored with the swan that presented himself (or herself, we didn't get that close) when I was walking toward the pier. He was hungary I guess because he walked up to me and just stared at me. I MADE a number of photos of him, not all of them in focus. I also made a triptych of him below

I am not really sure what this collection of photos says but maybe it is up to the viewer.
