The Getaway Monday image this week brings us to Oakland. On Thanksgiving morning this past year I headed to the Lake Merritt area near downtown Oakland to capture the city prior to sunrise. For most of the years I have been doing the Thirty Days Project, I have photographed first thing in the morning the skyline where I was on Thanksgiving Day to allow me to spend time with family the rest of the day. This morning while along the lake there was already a steady number of runners and walkers out for their morning exercise.
A picture tells a story. With so many ways to tell a story, a picture not only communicates the vision I see but allows viewers to interpret the story in their own way.
The enjoyment of communicating stories through images has been with me since I was young, and it has grown over the years. Working as a software implementation consultant and now photographer my business and artistic knowledge allows me to look at projects from a a center point. This balance lets me refine my photographic vision and tell the necessary story which will make your next project exciting and successful.
