I visited the docks in Galveston harbor and found these birds (pelicans and cormorants, I believe) roosting on posts and concrete blocks. Sometimes they would fight over who owned what piece of real estate.

This past year I submitted a portfolio of images to Black & White magazine. Unfortunately my portfolio was not chosen for the inclusion in their portfolio issue. However, you can see it in their online website at http://www.bandwmag.com/galleries/bw/contests/17/categories/7?page=2. It is the second from the left in the top row. You can also see it on my website at http://cfgardinier.wix.com/cfgardinierphoto. If you are into black and white photography Black & White is an excellent magazine to either subscribe to, or, as I do, peruse through at Barnes and Noble on occasion. Anyway, enjoy the images and not just mine.

I just thought I would let everyone know that I now have a website. It is still under construction. so bear with me as I put some finishing touches on it. Periodically I will be adding images to the various galleries. I am also contemplating a variety of other features. The sight is
During the month of November I twice occasioned to attend the Texas Renaissance Fair. This is not my typical photo shoot kind of event because it is predominantly one of shooting people. I went any way and I will have to say that the first day was a disaster because I find it difficult to take pictures of people even if they want you to, which they did. They were not bashful about for a moment. So the images I show here are from the second day I attended. A little bit better than the first. Nonetheless it was a great time. It is hard to imagine people who are willing to dress up and play barbarian for a day. Some don't even get paid to do it. Besides where else could you go and see barbarians, R2D2, Superman, Spiderman, a Wookie.

In my previous post I put up two images of the Pleasure Pier at sunrise. Well, after the morning shoot and then breakfast I went to the downtown Galveston area and walked around taking images as I went. Here are a number of them that I thought believe express best as black and white images. There is no special theme, just what I saw as I walked.
