Photographs from this week...

The weather has been beautiful.
I've wanted to capture some photos
of this dolphin sculpture in front of
one of the local libraries for a while.














It was commissioned from local artist
Paul Baliker.

You can view his website here.















I have a very simple digital camera with limited software but

I love making a variety of images from a couple of basic shots.














Black and white has always been a favorite.
I think the shadows and shades give a photo
even more depth and dimension than color.
Plus, b&w reminds me of growing up in the 50's.

The photos were taken with a Kodak Easyshare and enhanced with the accompanying software. Time photos taken was 6:00 pm.

A structural success, these fish.

OOh maybe not fish?

Jean said...

Goatman, I had to *blush* look it up.
OED says they are small whales!

I love dolphins! These photos are nice!! They look especially good against the black background of your blog.

Jean said...

They are gorgeous critters, aren't they, Foam? Thank you!

What a very cool sculpture. It's clean and round and upflowy (that's a technical term, right?).
And great photography!

Jean said...

I was especially drawn to the upflowy aspect, indeed.
