Just a quick edit from my little jaunt this weekend. I was playing with my Panasonic G5 and my Nikon 55 1.2. While not the sharpest image, it works. Enjoy the view from the shore.
In the misty morning, on the edge of time
We’ve lost the rising sun, a final sign
As the misty morning rolls away to die
Reaching for the stars, we blind the sky
Children of The Sea – Black Sabbath
This really was shot in the morning where I had to leave for work way too early. Luckily I had my Panasonic G5 on me and my Nikon 55 1.2. Cranked it wide open and got the shot. Way too much editing later I present it to you. Enjoy.
RIP – Ronnie James Dio
For some reason the numbers on the boats prows just fascinated me. This series almost was in black and white but I did a little extra editing and left it in color and pleased with it. Photographically speaking, not that exciting. This was me seeing how much detail I could get out the images. There is a lot going on around the boats that draw the attention. I wanted that detail to be involved versus just the numbers. Enjoy.
Sometimes you can edit and it all goes smoothly. Other times you edit and its like trying to break boulders with a rubber mallet. As I was trying to create a series, I felt like I was holding a rubber mallet and being told to knock down a mountain. It just wasn’t working. Taking a preset I created for another image and just hitting it for this one I knew I was done. I could keep fighting with other images or just be thankful that the Lady Jane came along. Enjoy.
I would eat pretty much everyday in Saint Cecilia Square, or Mariachi Square as I call it and it may be known as that locally as well. It’s where they all hangout looking for work and walking around to the restaurants trying to drum up business. For something like $5 or $6 they will sing a few songs for you. The downside is they aren’t what you call into posing for photos without getting paid. Can’t blame them so I took the shots I could get, mostly with them in a more natural state. Enjoy.
Returning back to Tijuana. I like to jump around with the stuff I shoot just to keep it interesting and not so monotonous.
When I do street photography like this I like to keep it in color because I think it adds vibrancy. In a place like Mexico you get muted colors mixed in with vibrant colors to make it an interesting mix. This set was shot on two cameras, my Ricoh GR and my Panasonic G5. Some were shot out of the window of a taxi as I was heading back to my hotel.
I’ll be wrapping up the Tijuana stuff over the next week. I have some interesting stuff still to share so enjoy the adventure.
