This week’s theme is not subject but location: Curaçao, an island country in the Caribbean.
Working with this photo also reminds me of the importance of taking photos with some flexibility for cropping. Not always possible, of course, but worth thinking about as I look through the viewfinder. My brain screens out the things I’m not interested in but the camera captures it all.
I’d like to have this shot, for example, from different angles and degrees of zoom, to see what might have emerged if I’d had more options for cropping out some distracting elements on the dock without having to also crop these wonderful, weathered boats.
As it is, this is what I have.
