I came across this otter today in the Port of Seward, Alaska. He was eating what looked like a ball of ice about the size of an egg. I’ll have to admit he was cute and quite playful before he dived under the pier and disappeared. I found him a few minutes later but he was to far away to get another decent shot.
Coffee is my thing. Plane & simple. It gets me up, and gets me through my day. Sometimes I go for a cup of Starbucks, while other times I go for a cup from one of the indie coffee houses.
While I was out shooting today I sat my cup down so I could get another shot and I saw this shot inadvertently lined up for me and had to take it. I love the colors, the depth of field, how the cup stands out and is nicely contrasted against the road and while the cup is out of place it fits still. This has become one of my favorite photos so far in 2014, one that I couldn’t wait to post.
I didn’t shoot this for the Starbucks corporation. It’s just a casual shot for my photo 365 project. I do hope that you and even Starbucks likes the shot though.
Sometimes you just need to go out and shoot. I know I get so caught up on trying to take that perfect photo, to take good photos, that I forget to just shoot. That’s why I decided to attempt the 365 day photo project. It’s simple take a photo every day. Mind you I take a lot more than one photo, so far I’ve averaged about 100 photos a day of various things.
In turn with trying to do a 365 day photo project, I have started my 365 day photo project on Medium. While some of the photos may be different in some cases they project has two homes. You can see this and other photos on my Medium profile here.
One of the first things I learned about photography, once I finally took a photo class roughly two years into my life behind the camera, was that sometimes your to far away. You don’t necessarily need to crop the photo, though I was always told every photo needs a little cropping, but you can get as close as you want. In this case I got close and I like the lighting on this object, which thanks to my proximity makes it harder to tell what exactly this is a photo of.
I’ve always been a sucker for the vintage or alternative style photos, as well as black & white. Down town Sacramento was were I started out as a photographer, and roughly five years later it’s only fitting I return to my roots. I shot this same building from another angle years ago.
You can find these and other photos like them on my studios, C. Carver Studios, website under the Fine Wild Art section.
