I made this image during a visit to Prague in 2007. On our first day there my wife and I took a walking tour that passed by this memorial to John Lennon. At the same time we arrived so did several large tour buses, which prevented us from getting a clear view of the memorial.

I like to explore and take pictures early in the morning on trips so that is what I did the following...

Our Picture This! assignment this month covered one of the metering patterns, spot metering. Spot is a great choice when you want to saturate a distinct color, or when you want to get the bright white highlight right, with compensation.

While on the freeway, I pass over this giant drainage system on the way to my studio each day. And each time, I catch a glimpse of this shopping cart way off in the back. I often wondered about the chances of it still being there in case I wanted to make a shot. Well, after about a week of seeing it every day, the shopping cart was still there.

On a recent cruise of the French Polynesia in the South Pacific, I caught this chance image of a powerful thunderstorm enveloping the island of Moorea. The shaft of light evoked a feeling of hope, safety, and refuge in a turbulent world. Within a minute of taking this photo, the entire island was caught in a tropical downpour.

Our Picture This! assignment this month was “Water Flow,” and we probably received as many, if not more, entries than any number we’ve had for any topic thus far. This makes it clear that all of us are entranced by the magic of water as it moves and changes, and that we know that the magic of photography is a perfect way to capture our fascination with it.
