black, white and shades of gray
Though I catch a glimpse of the ocean almost every day, I continue to be surprised by its changing colors, patterns and shapes. This week, after a rain, with long clouds casting shadows, and brisk winds stirring the water's surface, the ocean took on a rare texture. It reminded me of fabric: a sumptuous tweed.
And then, yesterday, in the afternoon, reflecting the light of a low-slung sun, the water appeared slick and silver like a mirror. I think it must be the absence of color in these two photographs, that gives them the look of pen and ink.
