Dreaming – weekly photo challenge

Costa Rica

The weekly photo challenge brought back memories of a job I worked on last year.
It was in many ways a dream job. I was hired to work on a new marketing campaign for a luxury cruise line. Two weeks at sea – no laundry, no cooking, no filling up the car, no housekeeping, bills paid – how much better could it be?

We traveled from Miami to Los Angeles via the Panama Canal. I took the opening photo and the sunset photos as we sailed in and out of port in Costa Rica.

I haven’t had a chance to try the specific technique suggested by Krista Luna,but the first photo of the port at early morning is pretty close. I didn’t have a tripod, so I used the balcony banister to balance my camera. The other photos are images I felt fit the theme of the week even though they weren’t shot with long exposure.

I think water has an inherently dream-like quality. Whether poolside, at the beach, listening to the sounds of a fast moving river, or a soothing fountain, water has a calming and meditative quality. I was not surprised that so many of the photos for this weeks challenge featured beach scenes. It was the first thing I thought of when I read the theme was Dreaming.
