Something catches my eye and I photograph it, always with the intention of reworking it into something I can call my own. My thinking: It’s not what you look at that matters but what it is you see and how you see it. That’s what matters. That’s how the artist shines through.

    Gorgeous work, has a dreamlike quality.

  • Thank you for your wonderful comment. I just reworked this photo last night. Wanted to give it that moody warm painterly glow like a varnish finish on canvas. I’m very glad you like it!

    very dreamy,leaves you wishing you were sharing the moment with the people in the capture!

  • Thank you. I love the beach. It spirits you to a simple place in time, especially just after sunset or on a drizzly, misty day as was the case here.

    Ooo … this is a photo? Almost looks like a Turner painting! Would be tempted to paint that one …

  • Yep, it’s a photo. I like atmosphere too! Be my guest if you want to paint this. I’d be intrigued to see what you would do with it.
