A couple of weeks ago I received a request came from a group of street artists in Buenos Aires called Primo Murales . They had seen my photo of Joe Daley entitled Joe’s Rainbow and wanted authorization to use it as a model for a street mural. No one is making money in this scheme, but I loved the idea.
So I contacted Joe to get his approval, which he gave, and we told them they had our go.
Above is the first photo of the finished work.
Isn’t it just totally cool?
Now I just need to find a good reason to go to Buenos Aires and check it in person!
One of the wonders of doing long exposure shots of water is you don’t really know before hand what the final picture will look like. That’s because you’re never quite sure what amount and texture of light will be hitting the water during the exposure. It’s only when I was processing Mercury Sea ( a shot of the cove of Port Mélite in Groix) that I noticed that metallic glint on the water that really makes the shot (in my opinion).
This is one of the first shots I did that I was really pleased with. It was shot in Saint-Jean Pied de Port in the Basque Country and features their main export: espadrilles! It’s now available on my store and you can order prints from anywhere in the world just by clicking on the links below the photo.
