It's been a while since I posted one of my Shades of Grey photo's so here is my latest work.
While there is some colour in this, it is actually a black and white that has been split-toned with some yellow and blue. It was taken in colour of course, but the atmosphere pretty much turned the whole scene to monochrome anyway. The photo was taken a few evenings ago during the heat wave we were experiencing in the lower part of British Columbia. My wife was watching television and yelled out "photo op", her favourite phrase when she thinks something is worthy of my attention.
So I dragged myself out of my cave and wandered into the living room to see what she was excited about. Nothing much to look at because the far shores of Texada Island were obscured in a combination of marine haze and some wildfire smoke that had been hanging around for a few days. However, there was a single sailboat at anchor just below us and it was close enough to be seen clearly along with it's reflection on the water. It was one of those serene peaceful moments you want to capture and enjoy over and over again,
This might just become the second piece to get printed large on a canvas and hung on a wall in our home. A companion piece to an existing photo on the wall in the living room, same idea, lots of haze and minimal colour. This one has even less content. The photo on the living room wall is the first one showing up on the home page of this site, a foggy morning in Coal Harbour, Vancouver.
