"How do you know, when you think blue — when you say blue — that you are talking about the same blue as anyone else?

You cannot get a grip on blue.

Blue is the sky, the sea, a god’s eye, a devil’s tail, a birth, a strangulation, a virgin’s cloak, a monkey’s ass. It’s a butterfly, a bird, a spicy joke, the saddest song, the brightest day.

Blue is sly, slick, it slides into the room sideways, a slippery trickster.

This is a story about the color blue, and like blue, there’s nothing true about it. Blue is beauty, not truth. ‘True blue’ is a ruse, a rhyme; it’s there, then it’s not. Blue is a deeply sneaky color."

Made the best of being out of town for work and finally got a chance to shoot some #stars. The #northernneck of #virginia are some of the best dark skies around in eastern part of Virginia.

Post 7 of 9. Set a goal that makes you want to jump out of bed in the #morning. Went out exploring for an early #sunrise and stumbled upon this lonely #feather floating in the #river. catching little intimate scenes like this is great #morningmotivation. This composition was taken with my #nikonf100 on #kodak #portra400 and was developed and scanned by @thedarkroomlab and is my entry to #thedarkroomlab_morning photo contest.

Post 5 of 9. A follow-up to the #foggy day on the #jamesriver. The shadowy figure off in the distance was perfectly framed by the #train #tressels. I was able to capture this #mysterious figure as they were crossing underneath with my #nikonfm on #ilford #delta400.

Post 4 of 9 is a two for one as well taken at #sunrise on the #floodwall and again taken on #ilford #delta400 #bnw and #kodak #portra400 as the #train was leaving town. I liked the leading line of the rails leading into the Monroe building and the contrast of tones and colors in both shots. What are your thoughts?

Post 3 of 9 is a two for one taken at #sunrise on the #floodwall. This #bnw was taken with my #nikonfm on #ilford #delta400 and the color was taken with my #nikonf100 on @kodak #portra400. The #curves of the wall and the contrast between the dark, cold shadows on one side and the bright, warm #sunlight on the other drew me to this composition. Which one is your favorite?

Image 2 of 9 was under the 9th street bridge looking south. I decided to get closer to the water and #fog. This image was by coincidence. This woman was walking her dog even though it was raining and they happened to stop so her dog could take a quick swim. I didn't catch her name but if you know her feel free to tag them.
