B&W: High Water after Sandy

Photograph by SG Atkinson: Sandy's High Water
I don’t often do much with Black and White photography. Guess it’s mostly due to my photojournalist view that real life photographs should be natural.

I was asked a while ago to do a 5 day posting challenge on Facebook doing B&W photos. I took a shot I did in 2013 of the flooding aftermath of Super Storm Sandy of the Chester River high water at Wilmer Park in Chestertown.

I’m not sure how successful I was of trying to make it appear more like a sepia photograph of an age gone.

Journey into the Foggy Mist

Project-A Year in Photographs: Lost in the Fog by SG Atkinson, sgatkinson.com
One advantage of living in an area that is surrounded by water is that there’s always a chance to catch an unusual sight. On Tuesday June 2, 2015 an eerie type if fog was coming off of the Chester River. The ship Sultana, which does educational school trips for students had a class that morning. They left docks for their class and this is what it looked like. Much simpler than the title, but not as thought provoking. One comment I have received about this photo is it reminds them of Captain Hook’s ship from Peter Pan floating in the clouds.

On the River Front

The Chestertown Water Front is not the ideal location for a Sunset photo. However I decided to try it on November 15th. This was the best of the evening with the ducks swimming
