An over active imagination? Ya, I have one of those! My love affair with rocks is pretty well known and that’s due in part to my imagination. For example this one at Lake Tahoe, it looks like a fish monster rising its head from the depth to spit out some chewing tabaco on us dumb photographers getting up early on a bald sky morning to shoot rocks. Perhaps a little more nuts is not only seeing this but then shooting to bring it out. Getting down near water level with D800 (ya, even wanted extra detail in the head) with the spooky sharp 18-35 and then processing it in Perfect Suit 7 B&W. Of course, when I say out loud what I was seeing, I was perceived as nuts and that is probably very correct. But then getting up early on a bald sky morning, is nuts!
“OH NO…NOT YOU!” That’s the greeting Marshall Joe gave me as I stepped off the bus for our NAPP Safari. I guess you could say I made an impression on him our last visit. I like Marshall Joe, he loves to laugh. And, he loves to play the straight man with a gun. We had great clouds but to get them behind Marshall Joe, had to shoot up on him. Well, he’s not real tall so we got him up on a four foot rock and than shot up on him with the clouds in the background. D4, 24-70AFS with light is a simple Trigrip Gold reflector. A real simple click of a really nice guy!
