One Shoot Turns Into Another, And Then Another. LOOP ALERT!
Late in the afternoon, I went out to WECATCHEM to grab some photos on an new story and as the sun was starting to set, I thought. mmmm this is some perfect light, I am going to go out and shoot photos. But then, something happened. I was in a debate with myself. Why not enjoy it. We have all seen sunset shots out the wazoo. And there is something about a private peaceful moment.
But the light gods just kept ramping it up. And to top it off, I had young people on board. Real live young people. And they can’t help themselves from creating perfect photos. I fought the situation. This is my family on a family cruise. But gad! look at that photo.. And so the loop of do and don’t kept swirling in my brain.
Kelsey and Ham, are up here for the week from New Orleans, and since the two storms are gonna hit decided to stay a bit longer. As many of you know they run a business called LOWTIMERS. And are also using this trip as a buying trip. They buy lots of old clothing. So if you have some cool stuff, they will buy it. See, one shoot turned into another and another. Trying to focus this story you are not reading because the photos are so nice, now has you in a loop! AHHHHHHHHH!
Just sit back and enjoy the magic of the magic hr and just let go.. And know today is? Wait? What day is it?
Amazing photos. Nothing like the open water to allow for some great sky backdrops. And the lines on that sailboat are beautiful. Makes me want to take up sailing a woodie. Maybe in my next life.
Nice photos! We visited Lowtimers last January. Lots of cool stuff. Hope it’s all still there after the storms.
The sail boat looks like a 22 square meter.
There was a fleet of them, called Udells (U22’s) that used to race out of Chicago Yacht Club Belmont Harbor in Chicago years ago. I think there are only one or two left in Chicago. My parents had one in the sixties. You can pick them out so fast the way they look on the water.
They were built in Sweden by Knud Reimers.
She’s an Anker & Jensen, 8 metre…a cruising 8. Hull no. 480 42-6 LOA 8-3 beam from Vollen, Norway…suburb of Oslo. 1952 built, so after Johan Anker’s death.
Bradford, she is amazing, and warms my heart when I see her.
