I went out this morning looking for foliage shots. Once again I couldn't find anything to shoot. I really have to learn how to see better.
So I went tourist again and visited Mystic Seaport, a maritime museum in Mystic, Connecticut. It was a very interesting place, but photographically it was pretty much a waste of time for me. There was too much background stuff that didn't belong. I can't see the sense in taking a picture of a 19th Century Whaling ship with a highway in the distant background. I love the old building and ships and stuff but not when it's mixed with 21st century backgrounds.
I did enjoy myself, but I shoulda left the camera in the car.
Last week at Old Sturbridge Village I took some Blacksmith shots which were pretty cool I thought. Mystic had a blacksmith who was much less in character but really hammered the iron. So I tok a few pics, trying to catch the sparks flying.
OK, I took a *lot* of pics before I got the timing down. But I finally did, and I think these turned out OK. I love the second one.
