Photo Challenge: Glow

Colorful HatThis Summer I started collecting photo images of women’s hats. Especially the colorful ones. This hat was photographed during the annual Plein-Air Invitational we have in Laguna Beach every October.

The hat was especially needed as the Sun was very bright and the day was hot.

I think it glows. What do you think?

Photo Challenge: Scale

171011-D042WI like photos that tell stories. This one shows various painters at work. They’re all plein-air painters. But other beach goers in the picture tell a different story. They could care less about the painters. But the primary focus of the picture is the painting in the center of the photo.¬† Placing this painting front and center and having it the primary focus gives it it’s importance.

If significance is determined by scale then the photographer on the far left is probably near the bottom of the significance scale.

The plein-air painters are part of the Laguna Beach Plein-Air Invitational held each year in October. Yes you must be invited to be part of this unique week long event.
