Photography of Roy Thoman

This weeks portfolio potential additions

The search for additions to my portfolio continues. I had an errand that took me to the Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach area, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to find some good abstracts to add to my portfolio. I started my search in Cape Canaveral, I was hopeful that some of the hotels or shopping areas would have some great architecture that would work for my portfolio. I have found that the height of the afternoon, although not so great for other types of photography, is a time of day that produces the colors and shadows that I am looking for. This is the time of day when I started my search. The one thing I need is a cloudless sky to give me the great sharp shadows that I am looking for. This was not such a day, The sky is covered with huge slow moving grayish clouds. I am driving and driving, but not seeing anything. I think mostly due to the flat light created by the clouds. I have found from past experience that you can’t give up too soon. Just when you think that you will never find what you’re looking for an opportunity presents itself. This is what happened on this quest. I was driving and looking and driving and looking, just about to give up for the day without a click of the shutter, when I saw my subject. I had made my way all the way through Cape Canaveral and I had almost gone all the way through Cocoa Beach when I saw this really great professional type office space attached to a Suntrust bank.  Not only that, as I pulled into the parking lot to check the place out, the clouds thinned and the light got way better, still not optimum, but useable. Wow this is great! So here are the images that I created on my trip to Cocoa Beach.

  4. Thank you for your comments! I liked the image with the columns too, but no it’s not really an abstract. I took that shot with the others and I just liked it, so I added it to the post.
