A companion to the shot I posted the other day.
These are part of a study of a 14-year old girl, done my my daughter. I like the first two because they’re in a playground, so there’s this coming-of-age feel to them, with one foot in both child and adult worlds. The first one is one I’d have been proud to take myself. The second could only have been taken by another teenage girl without being creepy, I think.
As a confirmed denizen of the small hours of the morning – an early field trip to the city seemed quite reasonable. I’ll photograph the sunrise from Queen Anne Hill – tunes, car, coffee, camera and tri-pod – off I went.

I’m just trying to see how this works. Just created a Flickr account, so we’ll see how this goes. These are all pictures taken in my backyard in Wahiawa, Hawai’i. Well, technically, my parents’ back yard. I only lived there a few years before we moved to Virginia…long story. None of these have been Photoshopped since I really wouldn’t know how.
the line to go somewhere.
