Photos and Commentary


  • This blog is mostly devoted to photography. I'm still learning, and each photograph I take teaches me more about how to do it better the next time.

    I like this quote by Jacques-Henri Lartigue: “I take photographs with love, so I try to make them art objects. But I make them for myself first and foremost - that is important.”

    Thanks for visiting!

Dragon Boat Races

Posted by blueheronbobcat on April 30, 2010

These photos were taken at a Dragon Boat competition in Tavares, Fl. I applied different effects to each photo, mostly different watercolor effects, and added the border. The Dragon Boat races are held each year in Tavares, but this was my first time attending. I was using an 18-200mm Nikon zoom lens, and I found that 200mm was just barely long enough to get the photos I wanted. Maybe next year I will have a 400mm or better to work with.

Can you do this?

Or this?

How would you like to be on the bottom of this stack?

I can’t imagine myself ever doing any of this, but these girls gave an interesting performance recently at a festival in Tavares, Fl. I have to admire anyone with that much flexibility in their body, and I greatly enjoyed the performance.
