2017/01/27 - Nature & Pictorial competition

January 27, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Hey there,

  I recently gave a presentation at the Cleveland Photographic Society about the past 8 years of volunteer work at the Cleveland Animal Protective League.  The overarching theme was how volunteer work helped me progress in photography, and how competing in photo competitions opened me up to doing photojournalism at the APL! I also used the time to encourage others to consider volunteering their time at the APL or other non-profit organizations for the fun and learning experience.  A few people approached me after with positive feedback, so although I used 3 vacation days to finalize the presentation, it turned out pretty good!

This was actually an icicle hanging from a friends porch during the extreme cold streak a few back.

Oddly enough, the ice at the bottom of the shot was at the top of Buttermilk falls...  The icicles actually formed from water dripping out from a shale wall just upstream from the falls.  Fun fact: Buttermilk falls is on the hillside as the ski hill known as Buttermilk at Boston Mills Ski Resort.
 

Here's another photo I entered a few years ago of the same place... (it had similar results in competition)

Taken from just under the silos at the Port of Cleveland.  What's really wild about this photo is that you can just barely see the silhouette of a Cleveland firefighter in front of the orange flames (you can just barely see his head just to the bottom-right of the flame).
 
Till next time!
