When you're facing the ocean on almost any kind of day there's probably something worth photographing. I was lucky enough to be in Florida at the beach during the onset and retreat of hurricane Irene with absolutely no ill effects from the storm. Instead, there were the most extraordinary sky shows of brilliant clouds and roiling ocean. Here's but one of many negatives I made last week. Not unlike digital photographers who wisely discard huge numbers of "captures" that just don't make it, I have discarded a lot of negatives that just weren't worthy of further attention. This scan is of one that I will print this week if I can. I really like it.
