I've made some changes here on The Image of the Week. First is a name change. My original intent was to simply post an image every week. Either something new or something I dug out of the basement. Well, it turns out I've not been very good at the "every week" part. Also, I've occasionally been pontificating on various topics of interest (or at least of interest to me), as opposed to just posting an image.
So I've decided to simply call it The Blog. That way I feel like I have more leeway in what I post and how often I post it. I'll still try and post something about once a week. Maybe a little more, maybe a little less.
With change in mind, here's an old image that I just re-worked. This was done quite a few years ago on 4x5 sheet film in a raging storm on the Oregon coast. My original version of this had almost no detail in the sky or water. With Ansel Adams analogy to music in mind, where he referred to the negative as the score and the print as the performance, I decided to try "performing" the negative with a different interpretation. I think I like having more texture in both the sky and the water.
So here's the 2016 performance.
