    The most mundane things

    can still make nice pictures.

    I was out shooting "stuff" to use in the next semester to illustrate this. I have looked at this rock pile many times in the local Japanese gardens and it was just Ho-Hum. This day, the lawn sprinkler was malfunctioning and spraying water over the rocks.

    I call it "There is one in every crowd."

    My type of shots Pops. Well done. A little bit of red goes a long way.

    I mentioned this style of photography on an earlier thread that sent one member on an awkward quest when I mistakenly described the technique as "red light" rather than the "red shirt school of photography". This technique, which uses a splash of red in photos was made popular by National Geographic photographers, was started in the early 1920s.

    I suspect, then, you can recognise the influence my mentor had in my style. Bill Belknap was a marvelous fellow, even though he did browbeat me fairly regularly.
