Sometimes photographs can be too obvious. It is all too easy to show the obvious of any scene. I like engaging the viewer by making them think about what the photo is about. Last weekend as part of the Charlottesville trip and some other recent travels, I deliberately tried to take these kinds of photos. At our offsite, one evening while possibly consuming adult beverages, no one will be shocked to learn that gambling was going on.
Roger recently wrote a blog about doors and windows, well I like to go even further by shooting the handles and the nice knockers (Zahnk you, Herr Doctor). They can show the wear and tear of the usage.
Trying to make bottles of wine visually interesting is challenging. I often have to drink at least half of one before I get a good idea. Down at Barboursville they have decorated between the tasting stations with regrettably empty bottles. I liked the light on the dust-no not in the wind.
