The “Blue Day” on the lakefront. The water and sky was straight out of the tube that day

OneColdHand_Taylor_02192017

“One Cold Hand” – I spent the winter focusing on lighting and shadows. This was the best result. The dog found the glove in the park on a cold winter’s day.

TwoForTea_Taylor_0212-2017

“The Whistler” – Another favorite after studying shadows. This one from spotlighting efforts. This very loud teakettle was Ted’s – found at a thrift store. It’s marked “Mirro Company” on the bottom. Made in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.

SecondChairAgain_Taylor_0206-2017

“The Empty Chair” – these cast shadows have to be seen to try to emulate. You can’t make them up. Strong afternoon sun makes the coolest shadows.

SundownAtSanibell_taylor_02192017

“Sanibel Sundown” is portraying lowlight, putting the sandy beach into darkness and the sandpipers making their individual shadows before all the light is lost – On Display at Madison Pyle Center
