Flickr a Day 200: ‘Carry a Longboard’

Our two-hundredth selection in the series comes from Steve Corey, who creates interesting art by bleaching out much of the color and drawing detail—and the eye’s attention to it—in shadows. Clever still, self-title “Carry a Longboard” begins—”and cast a big shadow” the caption continues.

He used the Nikon D7000 and 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 lens to capture the photo on May 4, 2014. Vitals: f/10, ISO 250, 1/160 sec, 70mm. The retired nuclear engineer is from San Juan Capistrano, Calif., but he lives in San Luis Obispo, which is 396 km to the north. Both communities hug the coastline. Steve joined Flickr in December 2007, and his photostream is stock quality through and through. Do click through; treat your eyes.
