Blue is Nice

I'm on a printing kick right now and have been focusing on our trip to France last year.  As I write this a crisp print of this image is rolling off on a 17x22" sheet of luxurious photo paper.  I captured this during our trip into amazing Nice last June.  It wasn't long after leaving the airport that I assigned blue as the color of this beautiful city.  And stopping at a light alongside the boardwalk I looked out onto this scene and quickly framed and snapped from the taxi.  For whatever reason I think of Pete Turner when I look at this.  Not because of the specific color, but rather the vibrance of it along with the fairly minimal composition.  Immediately became one of my favorites.

And as I finish writing this my print is complete.  Gotta love the digital darkroom.

  1. Excellent shot. Love it. The colours and the composition just go so well together. I suspect the print is awesome.
