I’d Rather Not Wonder About That Today

Filed under: Chesapeake Bay, people — beforethecoffee @ 10:06 pm

It was one of those foggy rainy days and I decided to go for a walk along the bay. I came upon a dead horseshoe crab and decided to take a pic of the two of us. Horseshoe crabs are pretty cool creatures, they have passive personalities, they move slowly, and they are always happy when you turn them right side up and point them back into the bay.

I'd Rather Not Wonder About That Today



  1. Very wonderful scene. I love the pointing-back, the wet back and ripples, the shimmering, the pairing of personalites. Thank you…

  5. A very strong image my friend. Another big time winner from you. Your vision and implementation of it is inspiring. Well done.

  6. It looks like you’re walking into eternity and leaving the rest of us behind…very soulful image to me. I love it! and I love horseshoe crabs. Hope you turned that one over… 🙂

  7. Very moody and surreal! I love your choice of B+W, it really puts the attention on the content, since any color in this photo would have been distracting.

  8. Fantastic mood and composition. Love this shot, Ferrell. Hope you turned that poor bugger around 😉

    Hi, Yes I always try to save them, sometimes they are too weak to get going so I put them in the surf. Ferrell

  10. I’ve looked at this a few times since your posting. Really wonderful… Almost equally compelling, in combination, is your caption. The Waves of thought are eternal too…horseshoe crabs an interesting footprint, helped into surf.

  12. I hope you will do a write-up or thorough review of the new program HDR Darkroom. I like it much better than Photomatix … although I’m just getting started.
