16 Mar 12. 	It's March, and thusly the annual installment of the Basic Course, an intro to photography, put on by the Mountaineers. In the past several years I have been very active in the program but have elected to sit out this year. It would have been my last year due to the distance involved because of  the move across the Sound, but situations dictated my departure. I had however planned on leading one of the workshops, the one to Fisherman's Terminal, but that will be taking place on the first of my two weekends in MD. That is a big disappointment as I've rather enjoyed getting there VERY early (0500ish) to work the subject for my own use as well as help some of the students who desired to do a "bit" more than that provided in the workshop. That tended to ruffle certain feathers, but, too bad!  Missing this opportunity of teaching also means that easy opportunities for me will suddenly be all but gone, as we will no longer live walking distance from the site. So I need to get my body down there rather soon to do one last series of shoots before we depart for the new abode. Today's shot was part of the class session from last year and was originally in full color, actually 1 of 5 combined to an HDR format, and then rendered in B&W as I thought it made for a more dramatic image.As I was preparing this to send I noticed a few interesting artifacts that for whatever reason I hadn't observed when I made it. I've removed a couple, and left in the remaining ones. If you view the image at a "normal" size they will not be apparent, but if you enlarge it to 100% you may find them. Might be fun to try; I left them in because I felt they added to the final feeling. ISO 200; 1/4 sec @ f / 9 on a tripod.
