Three portraits, a butcher, a waiter, a ice cream vendor, three lives all known only to me in these photographs.

Chairs and table

I didn't bother to ask what the price was for these chairs and table. I wonder which color would be my preferred seat if I owned it?

I'm very comfortable in the dark and surprisingly so is my daughter. When you've been walking in soft sand and it's very dark and the sound of the surf is loud but it's "out there" in that darkness and she was young enough to not really understand what the sound was then it's a great relief to come into the light! In fact it called for running in circles through the shadows on the sand!

The dipper is hanging there

Here I go with a first post. I've been reading/looking at and enjoying many of the photo-blogs for several weeks now and find myself ready to jump in and try it out. I'm starting without any real plan as to how often I will post or just what I may post. I do welcome comments on the photographs but can tell you in advance that I don't particularly intend to respond to " how did? what camera? etc." questions. I use both film and digital cameras. I have too many of both. I have been making photographs for over forty years and it is just as exciting as when I first started. This photograph was made yesterday. I only alter images digitally as I would in a silver based film/print darkroom- dodge, burn, crop, contrast changes, etc. I do enjoy spotting digitally way more than with spotone and brushes!
I have really been impressed by the overall quality of the blogs I've visited, both in originality and quality. Although I'm not sure what criteria applies to quality over the internet.
Anyway the title of my blog comes from Proverbs 25:25. I have enjoyed " cold water" from other's sites- here's hoping I can return the favor.
