Silhouettes

Andy | Tuesday, July 18, 2017 | Best Blogger Tips
This is one of those shots when you must have your camera set to manual. Point the camera to sky and set the exposure. Next return to the subjects... frame and focus on them. The background will be in perfect exposure and the subjects will be under exposed.

Andy | Friday, July 14, 2017 | Best Blogger Tips
He is definitely a "First Nation (Indigenous) Person. The term "Rez" is normally used by only people who live on or near a Indian Reservation. My understanding is it is not used in a offensive or derogatory way.

It is 6:43 A.M. and and local bylaws do not allow construction work to begin before 7 A.M. These trucks are parked on the side of the road waiting for the countdown to end. When that happens they will begin hulling dirt from the construction site of a new condominium hi-rise.

My Tribute... Sixth Of June, D-Day

Andy | Tuesday, June 06, 2017 | Best Blogger Tips
The battle on D-Day was one of the major steps in the liberation of Europe. Pat Keely Free Holland Welcomes the Allies 1944. Poster printed in London in 1944 at the behest of the Polish government in exile when the assumption was the the war would be over by Christmas. The Dutch hired the best - Keely was an important much admired British artist. He envisions a victory parade route, brilliantly hung with Allied flags, doubling as a ghostly crusaders sword with the welcoming Dutch soldier standing in the crossing. The allies as modern crusaders was an omnipresent theme during the war. Dwight Eisenhower named his memoir Crusade in Europe. Ingenious and joyful design that alas, could not be used until the spring of 1945.
