So in my trials and tribulations as an amateur photographer it was not a good day. I saw a picture today that I absolutely fell in love with. It was of the icebergs out by Cape Spear, with a full moon lighting them all up, I thought it was wicked sweet.
I had in my mind I would drive out to Fort Amherst and see if the icebergs were still there to get a few golden hour pictures. I make the trek out, set up my gear and bang - I realize I don’t have my memory card for my camera. That’s okay, I have a spare in my bag, wait a minute, my spare isn’t in my bag. Where the fuck would my spare card be, it has only one place to be….in my goddamn camera bag. So here I am out at Fort Amherst with all my gear, minus the one piece of equipment I need to actually take a photo.
Defeated, I head home, and decide I will come back again tonight and try and duplicate the picture that inspired my trek out there in the first place. I head back around midnight - with memory card in camera - and realize that I have no idea how this women produced such a fantastic photograph. I took a few photos of the moon and bergs, but was not satisfied with them at all.
So once again, I am defeated. I head back to my car and on the way I run into a fox, gnawing on a chicken bone in the middle of the road. At last, something I can take a picture of! I fumble around in my bag trying to get my camera out very stealthy, and by the time I actually get my camera out, the fox is long gone with chicken bone in tow. Man, I really suck at this photography thing.
In one last ditch effort I decide to go somewhere I’ve wanted to explore for some time, and try and get a snapshot of the city. I once again trek to this unknown place (without my flash light, probably not a good idea) I set up shop, and snap and few pictures, and this was the end result. I am really happy how this one turned out.
The texture of the water with the lights is cool, so there, it meets the theme. A new theme tomorrow, I gotta figure it out.
