Photo of the Month: September

I took a lot of photos this month and most of the real winners were taken at this year’s Festival of Sail. I had a really hard time deciding but I finally settled on this photo of a compass on one of the tall ships. What I like about this photo is that everything that is supposed to be in focus, is really in focus and everything outside of that is not. In addition, I don’t really think it would have been all that interesting if the photo had been taken head on or from a distance but the composition here turned out just right.  In addition, every little imperfection in the wood and the glass made it that much more interesting.  I have found that I really enjoy shooting photos of nautical things.  There’s so many interesting gizmos and gadgets on sailing ships.  A lot of them make really great noises as well.  Like the sound a wench makes when the line is being pulled across to hoist the sail.  Anyway, expect to see more nautical photos in the future.  I am really enjoying the ongoing photo adventure.  Looking through the viewfinder forces me to slow down and take in all the details and I can really see a progression in my photography over the past few years.  There’s still much to learn and I’m pretty sure there’s a new Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS in my not so far off future.  If you’d like to see more photography, be sure to visit my gallery here and the photo details are listed below.
