River, Clayton, GA

Clayton, Georgia, USA 2003

I don’t find it easy to take square landscapes. Here I was trying to use the curve of the river’s edge to lead your eye through the frame, but I’m not sure it works.

I believe Clayton is in the north of Georgia where once you might have found bears in the countryside, but no longer. I did find some rather large deer which burst from a bush as I walked through the forest, making me jump. But that was it.

Another Leaf in a Park, Singapore 2009

Singapore, 2009

I love here how the picture goes from blurry to sharp, from left to right in the frame. And where it is sharp, you can see the structure of the leaf.

I used my new camera of the time, a Canon Powershot G9 to take this. The reason it is worthy of mentioning, is because sharp close-ups are really hard to do handheld. Especially on something like a leaf, which is nearly always slightly moving.

This photo also reminds me of a time when I spent a lot of time in Singapore. I loved walking in the backstreets. It is the only place I know where Borders Bookshop would fill on Friday and Saturday nights.
