Composing a picture

A typical shot

Sometimes on the water I wonder if I paddle to take pictures or I take pictures of the paddle. Given my low budget camera I suffer no illusions that my pictures are works of art.

After a while the pictures can begin to look all and the same. There are, after all, a limited number of elements to include: a kayaker, the sea, the shore-scape. Still, the act of taking pictures on the water makes me "see" the environment I'm in. My eye is looking for interesting combinations and therefore on my paddles I'm not just on autopilot. That's reason enough to take a camera.


  1. the sundown in the blog head is gorgeous (not a typical shot!!! ;)

  2. Thanks Gio. It was a fine sunset for sure and a sign the next day would be good. Happy New Year to you.
