Photography: Fire Island
I have to admit that I probably was drinking when I took this picture of the railing around the deck off the bar on Fire Island. I was trying to learn how to force my digital camera to focus where I wanted it to, rather than letting the auto-focus ruin all the images I could see with my eyes but not duplicate with my camera. I really love the way the texture of the wood grain stands out with the light string, trailing off into the darkness, with a few points of light of other buildings off in the distance. This picture brings back a lot of wonderful memories of the fun we had out on Fire Island.
