To All the Ships at Sea –

It’s almost impossible to have a flat sea. I believe the proper expression is flat calm or dead calm – not a ripple to be seen.  I took advantage of this anomaly to make a very simple photograph.

I came up with a concept 20 years ago of standardization and simplification or KISS (Keep it Simple Stupid.) I had an opportunity to study art in Japan and you find out that less is more.  This was not an assignment. This was just for me.

I will make a 30 x 40.

Hi To All the Ships at Sea,

The majority of my photo life has been one deadline after another. Sometimes days, sometimes hours, and occasionally minutes. Approximately once a month, I try to take a half a day off, and kick back with my camera. So Happy Friday. Camera used for the above was a 5D Mark 3, 24-105 F4, tiffen 4x neutral density filter. Boy I miss black and white. Processed in Silver Effects Pro 2.
