365 Challenge October 22, 2009

Shackles at Nash Guns, Fort Ward, Bainbridge Island

Shackles at Nash Guns, Fort Ward, Bainbridge Island

Sometimes I feel shackled, like I am so busy taking care of everyone else, that I don’t make the time to take care of me.  In that I mean , today I was feeling pressured to fit in the time to shoot something, anything.  So I took this quick shot of the shackles that helped secure an eight-inch gun at Battery Nash in Fort Ward.  (The emplacement is now privately owned, and I photograph with the owner’s permission.)  I love my family, and they mean everything to me, but sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming.  The other thought on shackles is how much this discipline of the 365 Challenge has helped me break some of the photographic technical and artistic shackles that sometimes hold me back.

Manual: Read pages 104-105 covering Programmed Auto Mode and it’s various capabilities.  Don’t know that I’d ever relinquish that much control.  How about you?

Inspiration:  Chapter 4 of David DuChemin’s book, “Within the Frame”.  Still really enjoying the book and it’s images.
