Abstraction

A late post for today, and not too much to say about it. It’s an impromptu study in abstraction from a New Year’s day shoot with Brian Matiash and Pat O’Brien. A great way to kick off the new year.

And now the final detail shot for this week. As I was walking down the steps of the Stone Mill about a year ago, I glanced up. The spiral caught my eye. I had my 50mm on the camera … D300 then, so its reach was more like a 75mm on a full frame camera. …

Whenever a ball is hit towards the Green Monster at Fenway,  it brings the crowd to its feet. Any number of things can happen. It can ring off the wall and stay in play (almost surely a home run in any other park), it can land in the Monster Seats, scattering a few fans or …
