A Colorful Mood

I've been in kind of a colorful mood lately.

 

There's been some beautiful light out there on the streets.

 

You'd never catch me shooting in color after the sun sets...

 

But when I ran into this woman I ran into a polytonic explosion!

 

The shadows were growing long and it was gettin' to be the 'golden hour.'

 

She was a lot of fun to shoot...

 

And her personality was as warm and as colorful as her self.

 

When I first bumped into her I was shooting in black and white...

 

She asked to see the picture and before she finshed objecting to the mono magic I had switched that sweet D300 to the technicolor mode and I shot her as we talked.

 

It's been the most amazing summer I can remember in a long time.

 

Nothin' but love and light.

 

When you're walking on sunshine the world can see that.

 

The 'light seeks the light.'

 

I hope you've enjoyed your summer so far.

 

It's movin' fast.

35mm 1.8 cropped square and contrast and expo danced around until those reflections in her glasses looked magical.
