Saturday Morning, Stromovka Park

One of the many nice things about our new apartment in Prague 6 is being so close to Stromovka park.

Grand Sand

I took this photograph on Sand Beach in Maine's Acadia National Park in late July of this year.

Some young Mennonite women were taking photos of themselves in front of the surf on a very foggy day.

I'm quite proud of it and am going to enter it in some photo contests. Has the look of a Winslow Homer painting, I think.

I like the juxtaposition of the timeless nature of the setting and the subjects with the fact that they are using a digital camera. I like the arch in the girl's back, too, as she tries to compose her own photograph.

I took it with my iPhone 4s, believe it or not. There is no filter or any special effects. Just some small cropping.

Wish me luck.
