Sometimes getting into position for a better angle of view requires getting down and dirty. I was really loving the light on the row of posts and the bird. To maximize their impact I needed to move to my left without scaring the egret. So, already sitting in the wet sand, I scooted a few inches at a time, on my backside until I felt I had a better composition. I also had a Grackle and a Great Egret try to get in the shot but since they seemed to detract from the picture, I waited until they left.

Brown Pelicans hitch a ride to shore where they will wait for the deckhands to cull the day’s catch.

With Easter approaching and the pandemic on my mind, I find this image calms me and reminds me that while there are many unknowns, there is also much we do know.
We do not know, for certain, where and how this virus originated. We do not understand why it affects some people more severely than others. We wonder when we will be able to travel freely without fear of infection. We pray it spares our family and friends.
We do know, we are not the first people to face this type of challenge. Many who came before us faced much worse and we are proof of their resilience. We are not alone, even if it feels that way. We will be okay.

In spring, the Indian Paintbrush is commonly seen along Texas highways and in fields throughout the state. Most commonly a bright red but occasionally a plant with a color variation is seen. There is a simple beauty in a white flowers. Often associated with true love, innocence, humility, and reverence, white flowers evoke a sense of hope in me.
In spring of 2020, the year of the Covid-19 pandemic, I have hope for the resilience of mankind.

I was fascinated by the port activities in Saint John, New Brunswick. Admittedly, I love almost anything related to salt water but to me areas where freight and cargo are moved from ship to shore and vice versa always seem more industrial than coastal. But, I did spend some time surveying the “landscape” of the port area and found there were many little scenes with spots of bright color or juxtaposition of elements that I felt might make for interesting photo compositions.
Harborside: A Study of Lines depicts one of those scenes. The addition of textures, some dodging and burning, and a few brush strokes take an industrial setting and transforms it into more of an abstract piece by emphasizing the lines in the image.
