I have noticed that the impression which people get from a photo is very interesting.  I can change where I am standing by a few feet and get a totally different photo.  But, what I have noticed the most is that a photo only captures a small amount of what I see.  This can be manipulated in so many ways.  I can not count the number of times that I have taken a photo right beside the road and, with out knowing where it was, you would never know that, just a couple of feet away, there was a busy road.  I must say you can use that to great advantage.  I would say that 70% of my photos are this way.  How about you?

Today’s Photo:  Afternoon Sky

I have spoken a lot of the gate which I see in the morning.  I don’t talk too much of the gate I see just on the other side of the road.  I really mean, right on the other side of the road.  I have not had that much time visiting this gate lately.  This is because the angle of the light at the time in the afternoon when I go past it.  I pass by in the early afternoon and right now, the sun does not get to a good angle until about 8:30 P.M.  However, I managed to get there a little later the other day.  I just love photos like this where you can see the sun beams.

I have taken a few other photos of this gate including this old one: The Gate.  And don’t miss last Wednesday’s daily photo.

    Nice shot. Shooting direclty into the sun, even obscured, is always tricky.
