After the Storm


I know some like to collect pictures of wayward flip-flops – here’s one I took a few years back.

It’s easy to take photographs of objects, for many of us it’s the mainstay of our photography – but what I try to do, if I can, if the inspiration is with me, is try to take the photograph in such a way as to make it a picture – something which prompts wider thoughts/musings.  As here, where wider scenery was just too favourable not to include.

The image is also one of those, which although the colour is relatively muted, it does not work so well as a black and white convert – the flip-flop loses much of its status in the frame.

  1. You are right about color being needed in this photo – and the flip-flop adds a stop mark, or an interrogation to the rest. It is a great shot in every way. The distance of the horizon, the faded colors, the rolling waterline in calm greys and whites, and then the black stop sign of the living. That is what I see.
