orange work gloves


orange work gloves, originally uploaded by gawdessness.

Some of my kids take sport lessons at a "private" country club kind of place.
We don't belong to it, frankly, we couldn't afford to belong to it and wouldn't be able to get in the doors if it weren't for theses classes arranged through an outside organization.


I am sort of in awe of the size of this complex and the number of people it takes to try and run it and keep it cleaned and maintained.

This is a picture of one of them.
I cut the picture down a bit and had to play with the lighting a little in iphoto edit.
I'm still not crazy about it. The colours are just not as vivid as they were in real life, but I like what I have anyway.

In attempt to actually learn from this all, I will put the stats below:
30d/70-300mm/iso200/f5.6/

-and a freebie from our frosty day this past week. Just down our street. I love that the picture is nearly black and white w/o being adjusted to be. My husband thinks I am crazy to love the grey weather and to be honest I wouldn't like it all the time but some days like that are just perfect.

This one: 30d/100mm/iso200/f2.8/

I like shots like these, of people at work / the people who are mostly ignored.

The bright orange really works in contrast to all the other soft, neutral colours.

Yeh, I like the orange gloves. They really stand out from everything else with is a pal greenish/ dull yellow.

Coolness.

I love both of these photos. I think the gloves are terrific, and you can always get me with frost photos.

I like the orange and green too. At first I thought the arms were dancer's legs. I like the way you cropped it. I have a hard time editing in iPhoto. I'm clumsy with it and like Picasa or Elements much better - they are smarter and more versatile.

When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life.
