A Good Morning On The Upper New York Bay

The Story

A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.
Ansel Adams

When you are looking through the view finder or monitor. It’s hard — sometimes — to tell if what you have captured is what you see. In your mind. Why? Because in your mind’s eye you have already completed the image.

And it perfectly conveys your emotions. And profoundly connects with your viewer. Unfortunately, and more times than not, your capture conveys none of that. Why? Because. There really is no better answer. You can spend countless hours deliberating the WHY. And while there is some value in that internal discourse.

There is better time spent looking for that image:

  • that perfectly conveys your emotions
  • and profoundly connects with your viewer

And after hours of searching. You have finally found that capture. You know — the one that perfectly and profoundly embodies your emotions.
