Rights of Spring

#MonochromeMonday – I love black and white photography. It simplifies. It focuses. The lack of color can help focus your attention on the shape, form and texture of the subject. I often put my camera’s viewfinder in black and white mode. The camera still records all the color information but I can compose images with less distractions.

"Rights of Spring" is the original piece in the Rockport Sculpture Garden dedicated in September of 2000. It was created by @kentullbergstudios. I took this photograph on a foggy morning in February by the Harbor in Rockport, Texas. I used a Nikon Z5 camera using a NIKKOR Z 24-70mm ƒ/2.8 S lens (1/60 sec at ƒ/4.5, ISO 100, 51mm). I edited the image in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
