It's a funny time of year....

March 13, 2018  •  Leave a Comment




       March is really a strange, transitional month.  One day is warm and sunny, and the crocuses and daffodils are blooming and the birds are chirping.  The next day is cold and rainy, unpleasant weather to be caught in and almost useless for the photographer. On Sunday, Optimist Dinghies were out gliding on the Toms River and an E-Scow was out practicing, getting really for the racing season.  Today, two days later, started out below freezing with wet, heavy snow blanketing the Jersey Shore.  Amazingly, Spring officially begins in one week!

       For a person like me who does not enjoy winter, these changes in the weather have a roller-coaster effect.  One day I am out enjoying a walk and shooting in the sunshine, the next I am home, hibernating like a bear.  I know that warm weather will be coming soon and during the hight of summer, I will look back longingly on these cool day--but for now I just grin and bear it.

       Still, I intend to make good use of the inclement weather.  I have been giving a lot of thought to the upcoming show season where almost every weekend I am out at a show or shooting.  After doing this for a while, I have finally come to realize that my customers really love my sunset shots--but most are not crazy about my sailing photos.  So for the next week or so I am going to go through my inventory of captures, identify some of my best sunsets and sunrises, print them, and get them ready for sale. The sailing shots will be tucked away until the right opportunity comes along which, with the return of summer, I am sure it will.
