Follow The Path

The sunlight was at just the right place to center the fence shadow creating an invitation to walk down the boardwalk.

New Year, New Photographer

Black And White Photography, David Jensen, Photography

What better way to start a new year than to spend time with a grandchild who wants to learn about photography? He received a camera for Christmas and was excited to go out and spend time with me practicing with it. It also is a way to remind me of the basics as I pass them on to him.

Visions on Ice

During our long Minnesota winters, I search out ice formations wherever I can find them.  I may spend hours seeking these little treasures hoping to capture a few that will become unique abstract compositions.  On this particular outing, this image out of many is a standout.

Gray Day with Ice

Ice coats everything along the shore of Lake Superior this time of year.  If one is careful, you can creep around on the icy shoreline and rocks and find little treasures.

Through The Forest

A small section of the Superior Hiking Trail near my home in Duluth Minnesota.  For those unfamiliar with the trail, it runs about 310 miles along northern Minnesota between the Canadian border and the Minnesota/Wisconsin border, most of which is along the hills above Lake Superior.

A New York State of Mind

NY-Mind

I’ve had New York on my mind lately as my wife wants to attend a writing conference there in February.  Although I would not be attending the conference, I would look forward to meeting with other members of Monochromia and doing a bit of photography in the city.  My last visit was in July of 2011 and I had only five hours to take in as much as possible.  This time I would have several days to explore and, hopefully, have knowledgeable guides to show me around…hint, hint!

Transposed

transposed

Although there are two very different subjects in this composition, one soft, the other hard, the hard is softened by the reflection of the sky and clouds.  This also serves to add texture to the hardness of the human created structure, the texture being captured and constrained by the edges of the building.
