I find harbors very difficult to photograph. In general, they are way too busy for my taste and it’s hard to find a viewpoint that provides an interesting photograph. This one isolates a few boats, nicely lined up, no background junk. I like the reflections, the water – sky transition, the name of the foreground boat. It’s interesting enough that you can look longer at it than a quick glance. I did remove one small distraction but otherwise it’s pretty much as I shot it.
I took my fisheye lens to Goliad State Park on the way to the coast. This is Mission Espiritu Santo in fisheye, with a painterly effect applied. It’s easy to get the church with any normal lens, but I love the arcade and wanted to get a photograph with the arcade and the church.
It looks like it once occupied the entire busy corner but now a Pizza Hut has taken the corner spot. Or maybe a filling station once took the corner spot. The layout is old style motel of the best sort — you not only park near your motel room, you get a garage!
The same truck as the last post but with more like the original background, albeit modified. Cuero, Texas.
