This Photograph is One in a Million!

(Click on the photograph for a larger image.)

I have about one million photographs of this dock, which is just outside the Harbormaster's office at King's beach in Swampscott. I've shot it from all kinds of angles, at every hour of the day and some hours of the night, in all four seasons, in all kinds of weather and in all different kinds of light. Once I even shot it in the dark. (That didn't really work out.) Out of the one million different photographs that I've taken of this dock, there are only three that I like. This is one of them. And I don't even really like the other two.

Photography is so easy. All you have to do is point the camera and press a button.

You mean there's more to it? ;-)

Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog. I do take issue with the "photography is easy" comment. I studied Film and Cinematography in college and can testify that the technical aspect of photography (not to mention the uniqueness of the artistic eye) is an incredibly-complex science.

You *might* think people would *read* a post before they comment on it!

But you'd be wrong!

I guess that Sarcasm is even more of an incredibly-complex science than Film and Cinematography!

Sigh. At least Robert gets me.

I like this photo; very strong forms and nice lines. And I got the sarcasm even without the punctuation.

At first I didn't get the sarcasm, nor did I understand some of the comments, and I guess I haven't read yet about photography being easy - but! then I went back and read the original post and I got it.
