Mostly just nice clean shots, but see below for a sequence justifying the title.
|I love these "Beach Alone" shots of determined damn the weather full speed ahead cloud bathers.|
|The red hat makes it. And the truck.|
|Now there is a story. I wonder what it is.|
|A great one for the photographer-photographed exhibition.|
|OK, Mitch zooms way in to see what that does. Closer is almost always better, but now |
there is nothing there. Let's see where Mitch goes next.
|Ahh, here we go. Close enough to focus us, but wth enough different and |
overlapping visual elements to give the eye something to enjoy. Nice. Can we do better?
|And now Mitch makes another lady friend/phtographer.|
|So far the photographed phtographer does not know of her objectivity.|
|...and Mitch has a new friend.|
|Now there is a beach party I would love to join. Just gotta find some neon swimwear.|

One thing wrong with this way of presenting a gallery of shots is that they are piled on top of each other, making it hard to enjoy one while pestered by the sight of another.
If you click on one picture it will zoom to full view, then right/left arrows let you scroll thru them individually. The bad news is that somehow blogspot will skip some pix, and in recent experience by chance they were the best. Software. But I just checked and all forty-three come through OK.
I guess then the only remaining bad news is that you cannot read my brilliant captions while viewing that way, so come back later if you are curious about a pic or why I picked it for this first collection of Mitch's best.
|A wall denizen, and a great guy always overflowing with good will and positive energy. I should study him. And learn his name, but he is an infrequent regular.|
|I call these bi-chromals. Monochrome plus one color. In the kaleidoscope of South Florida Mitch somehow manages to find these pure essays in chromatic simplicity.|
|I get this crazy time-lapse photography feeling from this shot, as if it were one person.|
|Mitch has a few photographic missions he keeps working, one of them being the perfect shot of birds on this one street light outside the Elbo Room.|
|We flew here, we paid for the hotel, we are using up our vacation time, and we are going to sit on the damn beach.|
|This is Mitch's lady friend and dueling photographer.|
|OK, I took this one. That's O.G. in the Yankees cap, Mitch enjoying a happy thought. Or none.|
|We had a cold snap a couple weeks back. I remember Mitch seeing this shot and reacting not to the shot but to the reality. She is a good friend and Wall regular and the story went somewhere for Mitch other than photography.|
|I just realized why I like this so much. Mitch caught the boat just as it was escaping the inlet, |
doubling the sense of release and relief. Yes, work is a PITA just now.
|No Photoshop, just digital software going haywire over challenging lighting.|
|Prelude to a mugging.|
|We have to get a sharper version of this, it rocks.|
|Here is Prophet again.|
|I hesitated on this one because of exposure then remembered Mitch's remarks: the lady didn't have a care in the world and just let it all hang out. I guess I have a lot to learn from her.|
