While I was out walking around looking for things to fit our themes, I found myself down at the Bradenton River Walk. On Saturday, Art Center Manatee was having an event – Paint the Town @ Quick Draw – which allowed the artists to paint their vision in 2 hours.
I walked around and looked over their shoulders as they painted. Painting is not something that I know anything about – except for painting a wall or a house. I found myself seeing a number of different perspectives to the view of the area. These painters opened my eyes to some new photographic opportunities. Now they can leave out things that we would spend hours in photoshop trying to remove, but I am always looking for a new angle (perspective) to use.
As you can see by just the couple of photos I posted, there was the variety of ideas. The bottom is a panorama of as many of the resulting paintings that I could fit in. There was quite a turn out for this event. The gentleman in the maroon shirt was the blue ribbon winner.
They did not have anyone there to photograph the event, so I volunteered a number of my photos for them. I would say – I was in the Right Place at the Right Time.
