I continue to try to find subjects that interest me away from the ocean and marshes. Yesterday, I took a long drive on the west side of the St. John's River (quite a bit away from it actually), and stopped for these. It's a challenge to find compositions I like in spite of the chaos, but that's the fun of it. (Film)

Among the many things I miss about NY, is autumn color.  However, the little bit there is here presents itself as a much lighter value than its surround.  In the north, it would be less evident as the context is also a lighter value.  These photographs are from around the corner.  I was hoping for late afternoon sun that would illuminate the trees from the side, but no such luck...near total cloud cover.  But, I did enjoy the contrast the remaining leaves on these plants offered.

Trying to make something from not very much, it's interesting that, like a painter, manipulating tones can create something that wasn't there.  No, it's not Photoshop, but simple burning and dodging.  (Film)
