Celebrating 2011 – Part 2

30 Dec
 

We continue with a celebration through photographs of our 2011 workshop travels … one each from both Arnie and me for our workshops this year.  We’ll complete the year tomorrow!

Spain’s White Hill Towns of Andalucia – When we head to Andalucia, we always visit Real Maestranza de Caballería de Ronda (Royal Riding School of Ronda).  I loved the energy and tension of this trainer and horse.  Arnie chose an image of a delightful, elderly gentleman, with whom we had a chance meeting in one of the smaller white hill towns.© 2011 Margo Taussig Pinkerton.

Provence & Her Charms – For his image, Arnie selected a late-in-the-day shot of an ancient building in one of our favorite little villages.  Mine celebrates a dark sky over a lavender field, the acid green glowing against the oncoming clouds.© 2011 Arnold Zann.

Romance of Tuscany – We both made people selections, mine of two elderly gentlemen, walking into the late-afternoon light, while Arnie’s is of young ballet dancers taking a break between scenes.  Both were made in the Medieval City that looks down on the Borgo (inn) where we stay.© 2011 Margo Taussig Pinkerton.

Summertime on the Maine Coast – is our second Maine workshops of the year. Again, because of my roots sailing here, it is very special to me. In all the decades I’ve photographed in this area, I have never repeated the way I’ve rendered a scene.  Arnie takes the same approach.  He found a colorful dinghy bow reflecting in a still harbor, while I got down low to make this image of some rocks and reflections.© 2011 Arnold Zann.

Zion & Bryce Canyon National Parks – There are so many photographs to be made in these parks.  This time, Arnie and I happened to both choose images from Bryce Canyon.  I converted mine into a Selinium tone to celebrate the range of tonal values, while Arnie selected a lone tree, spotlit by the sun and dwarfed by towering pinnacles.© 2010 Margo Taussig Pinkerton.

Monument Valley & Canyon de Chelly – I first came to this area back in the early 80s and never get bored photographing here.  Arnie and I both chose locations no more than 100 feet from one another.  Arnie went for a dark, moody feel, while I concentrated on the rhythm of the overlapping layers and patterns of the scene.© 2011 Arnold Zann.

So again, these are not your typical destination photos, and yet, you get a feel for the flavor of their locations. Try to do that in your photographs, whether at home or overseas.  And return tomorrow for the final part in this series.
