For the 2nd time since I started this blog in 2001, I have decided to reset the archives and start over. The first major change was on January 1st 2006. After following and being inspired by Sam Javanrouh and David Nightingale, I stopped writing and went to a single photo per day in a 365 styled project. That has now lasted 6 years but not without limitations and challenges. I found myself often playing catch up and quickly posting “filler” photos to stay current. With a design so focused on the image alone, it made for writing about anything else near impossible
So back to a traditional blog I go. Instead of spreading a series of photos over weeks 1 day at a time, I hope to do it over a couple posts. A format that encourages better descriptions, stories and processing techniques.
From a technical point of view, I was using Folderblog to manage content and although super easy to setup and use, this abandoned product is outdated with many limitations. Making the jump to WordPress has many exciting features.
With that being said, here starts the next chapter of the Focused on Light photography and design weblog.
Today’s Image – St. Peters, Prince Edward Island
Located on the North Shore of PEI, Canada, this outlet from St. Peters Lake is located roughly around N 46 26.368 W 62 46.553. The wide 17mm framing of a strong “S” shaped curve was intended to pull the viewer up and anchored with cloud formations in both top corners. My hopes is that you can feel your feet slightly being wet. Not visible in this image but a cool and windy late August evening was the cause of some fairly aggressive blowing sand.
