Shy

As I was finishing my photo walk on Sunday, I spotted these local photographers on the beach.  I loved the way the light was filtering through the umbrella, but they closed it up before I could get a shot I liked.  So, I approached them and asked if they’d open it again.  You’d have thought I’d ask them to give up there first-born by the look on their faces.  They did reluctantly decide to humor me – but insisted upon hiding behind it.  The photographers were camera-shy!

  1. Hey, what a great new look.
    This one makes a great black and white–and I like the way the shoreline slices it in thirds. Wonderful lines with the horizon and shadows, and there’s such a contrast of light and dark; makes it very inviting. The fact that they look like they have a secret adds a little mystery to it, too.

    Funny that photographers are so shy–but I think that is probably true of most. I’m no photographer myself–but I sure like taking pictures more than being in them!

  2. I’m on the other side of the fence. I don’t mind being in front of the camera or behind it. I find it ironic that photographers don’t like to be photographed. Of course Jolene would also be hiding behind that umbrella.

    1. I’m so excited, Andy! Your first comment ever on my blog! You have reached out from the quiet comfort of the RSS feed and made me very happy. And you are 100% correct, I’d be hiding behind that umbrella!
