Happy Labor Day

Now that I am retired, I think I have a deeper appreciation of those who labor. Of course I worked for a long time and still do creative work every day, but there is work and then there is labor.

I have also done some labor in my time. I worked in a commercial bakery. I worked in supermarkets. I was a cab driver. I have done photography inside nuclear reactors, steel mills and paper mills. I understand what labor is and to all of you who labor…thanks and enjoy your day!

Smithsonian Candidate #2…Ghost Ship

I am thinking of entering the Smithsonian Photo Contest even though I have zero chance of winning. I say that not to denigrate my ability as a photographer, but each category already has over 50,000 entries. Sure a lot of them are crap but some, well follow the link above and see for yourself. Also you can only submit work from 1/1/2016 until the present and all works with people must have a model release.

If you are familiar with any of my work (e.g. Moment and Souls) you probably realize I don’t have a lot of model releases.

Fortunately I do have some images that may qualify in other categories and will be publishing some here to see if you feel they quality. Please comment and let me know your thoughts. This is an entry in altered image category of a boat at sunset off La Isla Dora in Quintana Roo, Mexico.

Sunset at the Dock

I took this picture while this boat was at the dock. I couldn’t help but wonder how this would feel to see the sun going while at sea. No other boats around, no land in sight.

Would I feel anxious, peaceful, scared or happy. Probably all of the above making it a unique experience.

Cruising at Sunset

Next time w visit Mexico I have to figure out how to be this guy for a day. This is MY boat. I want this boat and I want to be at sea at sunset and sunrise for that matter. I am planning an ocean cruise but this is different. This boat is a personal yacht to only share with very close friends.

Play Me

In every country we visited throughout Europe we found pianos in public places available for public performance. This one was inside the mall adjacent to the Central Station in Amsterdam. The piano was in tune and pianist actually knew how to play.

Creative Tree Trimming

I have noticed that in Europe there is a formality and structure to even the smallest garden. This attention to detail extends to even the way they trim their trees. This tree is along the Rhine River near Breisach Germany
