Are my glances of this city random, is there a pattern, or am I just lost in the fog?

Dubrovnik in Black and White

Many of those who follow my photography have an interest in black and white conversions of digital images. The native output of a digital camera is color, enabled by a Bayer filter built into the sensor. What is interesting about black and white conversions is the photographer is able to change the color response of the image after the fact by manipulating color channels prior to mapping those colors to greyscale tones. With film the usual method of accomplishing this task was with colored filters or using film with a different color response. It’s beginning to break down, but there is resistance in the fine art world to digital black and white.

Dubrovnik, Old Town

Croatian Claustrophobia

Croatian Claustrophobia

Dubrovnik is situated on hills that meet the Adriatic Sea.  It is famous for its large Old Town.  While the area is ancient, most of the roofs were replaced in the 1990’s after the war which erupted over the break up of Yugoslavia.  Because it is a popular cruise port, Old Town is jammed with tourists and people hawking short boat tours.  A beer will set you back $6, the most expensive in Croatia.  As usual, I give you the not usual in photography.  I even let a monochrome shot slip in this time.

Perhaps what I do with travel photography is an illusion.  I feel I have to throw in a few of the more typical shots just to prove I was there.  The entrance to Old Town appears deserted when it was not.  The harbor area is the best place to just hang out with tour boat traffic for entertainment in addition to people watching.  Of course there was water so I grabbed some abstracts.

This is the first of several posts from Dubrovnik.  Stay tuned.

High Seas at Hanalei Bay

Two Boys, Full Speed

On my last full day on Kauai I went up to Hanalei Bay to see the high seas.  Someone tried to go surfing.  Paramedics took him away in an ambulance.  Locals say it is possible to get swept off the dock by a rouge wave.
