Went out for dinner Saturday night. This view is across the road from our favourite restaurant.
Whenever I look at this portrait it instantly takes me back to the day I took it. While driving to the photo shoot the news Janis Joplin had died came on the car radio. I was a great Janis Joplin fan and it was sad to hear, especially since Jimi Hendrix has just died 16 days earlier – what a waste. It put a bit of a damper on my photography that day.
One of my favourite authors is John Steinbeck and his tales of Cannery Row in Monterey drew me down to take a look for myself. The heyday of the sardine fisheries have long past but the remains of the canneries can still be seen, especially from the water. I’ve added a bit of a glow to enhance the poor photo quality.
As I posted on my other blog I have started feeling that I need to take a bit of a blogging hiatus. Feeling like I’m getting a little mossy in the photo department and I think quality should be more important than quantity. So, I want to get together a fresh collection of photos and post when I feel comfortable with them. Stay tuned!
