White & Blue


Good Afternoon:

During the latest of my never-ending and never-successful efforts to organize my iPhoto library, I discovered something about my hobby: yours truly really, really likes the color combination of white and blue. Somewhere between 600 and 700 of my pictures feature this combination dominating the scene. Much to my surprise, such a limitation has not proven much of a limitation.

None of these photographs have been edited; I’m one of those annoying photographers who strongly believe in “editing in camera,” as they say in the movies, and yet lacks the skills to do the editing in which he believes.

White, Black & Cyan

In fact, just for fun I’ll break my only-in-San Francisco rule and include a few other locations around the country.

Hot Spring, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

Exterior Wall, Berkeley, California, near the Amtrak Railroad Tracks 2008

Idaho Falls, Idaho 2011

Blue Door; not sure where I took this picture.

Returning to San Francisco:

Top of Symphony Hall Photographed from Hayes Street

Finally, an experiment utilizing the weaknesses (!) of the 5 megapixel camera in my iPhone 4. The combination of poor lighting and zoom in the camera produces blurry and pixelated effects at shows, and I sought to exploit this during the annual Christmas concert at the Fillmore Auditorium with headliners Ozomatli:

I have also discovered a lot of pictures with either a red or orange theme, but let’s save those for later. I hope you liked viewing these.
