Weekly Photo Challenge: Satisfaction

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Toronto (Canada)

This is a very ordinary picture. In fact, it is not even a good example of street photography because despite capturing a moment on the street, it doesn’t really tell a story.

However, this shot has given me great satisfaction at a personal level. For a few years, I had numerous failed attempts with “panning”, which is a technique of sweeping the camera along in time with the moving subject and to get a relatively sharp subject but a blurred background with horizontal streaks. It freezes a moment and yet gives a feeling of movement and speed. I never nail it until this one.

By the way, panning comes from the word panorama.

Berg Lake Trail @ Mount Robson (Canada)

By definition, landscape photography should be purely natural, but I prefer to add a human element, even if it is very small in the frame.

Lobster Boats

The village of Alma (New Brunswick, Canada) boasts the highest tides in the world. This trio of lobster boats have completed their daily catch and are now resting on the mud, awaiting the tide to come in so they would have enough water to launch again.
