Happy Valentine’s Day

Since today is Valentines Day, I thought it appropriate to share an image from my work in progress “Just a Kiss”. This comes form Monet’s beautiful garden in Giverny near Vernon France. Happy Valentines Day to everyone, remember to love the one your with.

Sunset Silhouette

Sunrises and sunsets are magic. Not just for photography either, there seems to be a special aura and energy that happens at this time of day. I think that sunsets on the beach or on a boat are real amazing life events. This one is from a boat on the lagoon side of Cancun.

Candidate #7– Giverny Kiss

I am going to be posting images that I may have posted before with a candidate # thereby collecting a list of what I feel would be likely candidates to print for a gallery show of Photojournalism. This one was taken in Giverny outside of Vernon France. This place is so romantic, it is hard not to get cuddly. Please feel free to leave comments if you agree or disagree about including them in a “best of” list.

Candidate #3…Street Kiss

I am starting to toy with the concept of doing more exhibition photography after we relocate. During the 1970’s I worked as a photojournalist in Pittsburgh and displayed some work in museum shows including the Carnegie Museum. I stopped working in the field when I became involved in printing and publication. I retired early so I could pick up Photography again and began doing photojournalism although this time without assignments. I am looking for work that Henri Cartier-Bresson would like.

We came across this scene in lake Como Italy but the kiss never happened. The young man saw me right after I took this and they waited for us to leave before continuing their “conversation” Please feel free to leave comments if you agree or disagree about including them in a “best of” list.

A Valentine’s Day Beach Flirt

When did you first learn how to flirt? Chances are it was on Valentine’s Day. Although a manufactured holiday designed to sell greeting cards and candy, I can remember when it used to be important. As a child I would spend a long time agonizing over who received the bigger cards from my Walt Disney collection. As a young man, it was absolutely critical to not be alone on Valentine’s Day.

This picture is a study in flirting dynamics. The young man on the right is clearly with the girl next to him but seems to be trying to win over the young lady in the middle. The guy near the water needs to buy a clue.

Whatever you do have a great Valentine’s Day but don’t fall for that “Must buy candy” ploy!
