Last week, I received an email from a local magazine asking if they could interview me for an upcoming issue. I was floored by the request and happily agreed to meet at Chandler Hovey park with the reporter and his photographer. We had been under boring grey skies all week but the staff photographer asked me to bring my gear as he wanted a situational portrait. I complied and decided to go about with some long exposure images.
When I arrived, I noted that the tide against the rocks looked like tendrils and sought to find a composition that would capture the feeling of the earth reaching out to meet the sea. I overexposed a bit to blow out the gray sky and then processed the image to black and white to suit the mood of the day.
For an otherwise boring grey day where all I had planned was culling photos and processing the keepers, this turned out to be an awesome one and I’m glad to have the image to remember it by. Thank you to everyone who has helped me narrow down images that will accompany the article.
