Haiku for You (1 of 2)

I thought about writing a haiku for this week’s post but I realized that I would probably butcher the ancient craft with my peasant western language. Fine then, Haiku, I won’t offend your sensibilities … or will I?

Spring night at long last
A lover’s exhausted gasp;
Mornings here too fast.

Hehe, that one was a bit racy and didn’t have much to do with the picture of Monterey’s Fisherman’s Wharf so let me try again …

A pier’s waning light
Reflections from other worlds;
Dream colors abound.

How you like me now, Haiku? Thank you for letting me play in your fancy court; I will now return to my side of the tracks. You can keep the ball as a memento.

About This Photo

This photo was taken during my first photo walk ever, led by Trey Ratcliff. I took 3 exposures as always (+2,0,-2) on my trusty 1940′s tripod, processed in Photomatix and then brought into Adobe Photoshop for cleanup. I am heavily relying on digitally blending parts of each of the three exposures to bring back the realism to the finished product because HDR can sometimes make things look a bit too fantastical. I should note that Nik Colo Efex is my new best friend (software-wise).
