For the last several years, I’ve been doing 52 Frames, a weekly photography challenge. I’ve had fun with it, learned a lot, and now it’s time to take a break from it as I wander into the unknown future that is 2022. Here’s the last set of photos for 2021 for your enjoyment.
One of the reasons I love the back roads of America is that you can run into the most amazing things by serendipity. Here’s an old iron bridge somewhere between Gila Bend and Tonapah, Arizona. There was so little traffic that I could stop on the bridge and take this shot, leaning out my open window.
Someoone had arranged these rocks into a little composition in the recent past. Tidal action added the strands of seaweed and worn down the sand around them. I just took the shot.
One of my muses when I lived in Santa Cruz (2000-2012) was the Seacliff Pier and that broken down hulk of a concrete ship at the end of it. So when I was back there a few weeks ago, I waited till almost sunset to get this shot. Still one of my favorite things to photograph, all these years later.
Sometimes the trick to getting a good photograph is not only being in the right place at the right time, it’s also looking up from your phone screen.
