Rodeo Beach in the Marin Headlands

When I was a kid -- oh so many years ago, I was into black and white photography. I had a darkroom setup and I pretty much lived, breathed, and ate all things photographic. Back then I was a big proponent of black and white -- these days, although I'm digital now, I like to give it a whirl on occasion.

And even though I did relatively little photography between the ages of 25 and 52 I never really stopped looking at things, like splashes, as if I was actually shooting them. I've always liked to frame-up subjects with my fingers -- I knew that someday I'd get back into photography.

Rodeo Beach is a good place to clear the mind. And a good splash often will take it to another level. Sound would have been nice, but just imagine a loud and resounding "fop".

Wonderful B&W photo. Very Ansel-like. Do post B&W's more often. Consider this coming from someone who long ago had his own darkroom and should do as he tells others.
