Morning In Eureka

Bikini Clad Goddess on a Grid

Lisa and I along with some friends went to Arts Alive last night in Eureka. There was a festive mood in the warm evening air, and Old Town and the boardwalk areas were full of people. The bay was gorgeous, and of course I didn't have my camera.

I became inspired, and went downtown this morning. The shot above is an example of what I saw. The shot below is of the Morris Graves Museum of Art. I only photographed for about an hour, but I felt like I immediately stepped into the groove. I like almost everything that I shot today. I think this was the first time that I used only the 17mm tilt-shift lens. I am starting to carry my dark cloth, and I am treating this 35mm digital camera like as if it were a view camera.

I found out last night that I was awarded a "Best of Show" for my photograph "RSVD" (which is in the Morris Graves as part of the Northwest Eye Exhibit. There is a copy of it in an earlier posting.
