These are some fountains in parks in Fargo, ND. I really like how different shutter speeds demonstrate how the speed affects the image of the water, freezes the action.
This first photo was shot at 1/15.
And the same photo now at 1/1600.
This photo was shot at 1/13th of a second.
And this one at 1/1600th of a second.
I've signed up for the Type + Writer class at jessicasprague.com. It's a 2 week class, starts next week, and am very excited about this! It's going to be both about typography (which I'm truly only minimally interested in; I read it as "interesting fonts"), and about writing/journaling.
It's the writing part that really appeals to me--the magic of words and the stories lurking in all of us! It's what I love about photography. . . the stories that are behind the images. These fountains are an example. . . to me, they're "pretty", and interesting visually and in terms of the shutter speed, but there's really no Story. (Although if I didn't have others with me, like children romping around, and there's only so much I can torture my poor husband. But maybe I really should have again used the tripod, had my remote with me, got my feet wet, and . . . . photographed explaining it to the police??????)
