It isn't a true sunset being that it is still somewhat in the sky, and after Tom's comment about the beauty of Hawai'ian sunsets I am trying to show everyone a better example, and I should have a true sunset, I am going to flip thru my 3k+ photos and see what I come up with, for now, Here's Johnnnnneeeeeee:

Nice evocation of the "Endless Summer", Nancy!

Recently, someone came up with idea of b&w sunset on the forum

It worked!

I tried the same with your pic but will not post unless you are okay with it.

Just PM me if you would like me to postmy b&w take. :-)

it actually looks like a b&w photo with some sepia toning that went a little awry, and so everyone knows I am open to poetic license (I give all permission for) so have a blast with my photos. It is always good to see someone else's perspective. It is like when you are at a restaurant and you order your food, then, when the other people's food comes you realize that you might want that instead.

The shot speaks for itself. Did you know this person, or was she just hanging out there?

she was being photographed by the photographer Calvin Hall. I had met him on the beacha couple of days before and he was pretty much propositioning us to get photographed by him, I guess this was one of the other girls that was there. A few of my friends went up to him that night that I took this photo, I had already started on the fairly long hike back to the parking lot. They said that he was shooting her with the sun directly behind her. Sounds a little cheesy, or at least "Hallmark-ey" he was using the Canon D20.

Here you go, Nancy...a b&w take. You are all class and grace.

Also, I think Mr. Hall missed one intriguing element in his photos. An ivory, ankle length, light cotton (muslin) skirt would have added a wonderful sense to the photos with the sun directly behind. But then...to be fair...who would think to bring an ankle length skirt to the beach. Geez, I don't know. I know I wouldn't!:blah:

Also...:-) on your take on dining.*

Nancy, I have always wanted to go to dinner with seven other folks.

Everyone is seated at a circular table.

Everybody orders .

The food arrives.

Everyone moves three places to the left.

Each diner thenconsumes the meal before them.

To me, it would be a "test" of each diner's inherent sense of flexibility, of their response to change, of "risk", of discovery.:idea:

So far, I have found no takers for this meal. Hope still springs eternal, however!


* Now, substitute diners for eight folks each with their beloved digital camera before them.Again, the rotation three places to the left.Each camera is borrowed for say two hours. Camera then returned to owners. Owners go home and print proof sheets of photos taken by the "guest"photog.

The group reassembles to share proof sheet over...dinner, of course...with that rotation three places to the leftnow abeloved tradition. Over dinner, animated and spirited discussions ensue regarding the goals of each guest photographer coupled with their previsualization and "vision".

Just a thought:idea:
