On the rocks

Some mates messing about on some rocks in the hills near where we live. I like the silhouette effect of this shot

Wolfe Street

I drove past this part of my neighborhood a few days ago and was reminded of this shot I took in 2011. I originally processed it in a sepia tone and converted it to black and white for Monochromia. On a Sunday morning as daylight was breaking my husband parked the car sideways in the street to block it as I set my tripod up on the traffic line. Everything was damp from a brief shower moments before. Flower petals everywhere. I’ll never forget it.

Calm Crossing

Black And White Photography, David Jensen, Photography


Several years ago the Ira Bong bridge was closed, one direction at a time, for improvements.  Since this bridge happens to have a bike/pedestrian path that allows riders to cross between Duluth and Superior, I was able to go out a couple of times and have half the bridge to myself.  This gave me a rare opportunity to capture images that otherwise would be impossible to get, at least legally.  I made two trips during that time, one daytime and one nighttime.  Of all of the images, this remains one of my favorites.

Netly Marsh Steam Rally 2008

Netley Marsh Steam Rally. A beautiful hot summers day and lots of old steam driven traction engines. Heaven for a photohound.

They do say “The best camera is the one you have with you at the time”. This was taken on a Canon powershot G9. I loved those G cameras.
