I finished up my Blue One Block Wonder quilt earlier this week, and finally walked down to the pier to take some pictures of it. I figured since I used some fabric that looked like waves, it was only appropriate to try to get some pictures of it near the ocean.
My teacher from the quilt photography class suggested that when it comes to outdoor shots, just go and try stuff out to see what you like. Wow, profound! So today, I did...
I got this one. Too far away, and the light seems a little bright. I wanted to get down here as early as possible for better light, but alas, I am a taxi service in the morning and some days it takes longer than others to get to school.
And this pic. Closer to the quilt, light still a little bright but from a better direction. Darn wind blew the quilt a little so I have a ripple. Hey, that's the Redondo Pier in the background, if anyone is interested.
And this pic, from the park looking down at the beach. I think the lighting is much better, but all that dirty concrete isn't attractive.
This one is taken on the pier itself. Luckily, the guys had just gone around and power washed everything, so no bird poop anywhere! I really wanted to get a seagull in one shot, but not their poop. The lighting is all wrong for this picture.
Yep, this was the better side of the pier, looking out at the water.
Sun is still a little bright, but it does make the white pop, huh?
And just my luck, a gull decided to fly by on my last shot.
I will be posting another post about this quilt soon. Turned out there were some "lessons learned" while quilting it up and I thought I would share.
Have a Super Sparkly Day!
