I’ve Got The Blues

 

I made these photographs at Malibu Lagoon State Beach with my Fujifilm X-T2 and 18-55mm f/2.8 lens. I hope you enjoyed these Fuji Blues.

  1. You make me wish I was there right now. It’s too cold where I am currently.

  2. Hi Jane, looks like you’ve been wandering….I love that staircase! And I hope Malibu won’t succumb to the fires, like way too many places have.

    • Hi Lynn, Spending the holidays in Santa Monica so we are quite close to some of the fires. Awful and frightening. Hope all is well up north!

      • Ugh. Don’t you feel like there are some huge shifts happening? The new prevalence of more extreme weather, more extensive wildfires, and the cultural shifts too, not least being me too and the incredible change in conversations. We have to get ahead of the climate and fire issues, and behind the me too shift. Sorry! Not all relevant but there ya go. All is well here – an unusual spell of dry weather that may be unprecedented for December. But it’s certainly easier to live with than the norm of cold drizzle. Take care down there!

        • I share your sentiments, Lynn. Climate change must be a priority. As CA burns down…. Cultural shifts abound, too, and tonight a glimmer of a political shift. There may be hope in the midst of all the darkness. Thanks for sharing your honest, candid thoughts.

  3. “When people ask me what equipment I use – I tell them my eyes.”
    Nice! 🙂

  4. Wonderful blue photographs and quotes. You always put such nice collections together. I love this quote and hope to be able to use it the next time someone asks! “When people ask me what equipment I use – I tell them my eyes.”

  5. Terrific images Jane. My favourite is “Stairway to Blue”.

  6. A symphony in beautiful blues.

  7. I do proclaim that the most useful accessories I have, anonymous also has. Like that quote!!!! As for the photos; Stairway to Blue 🙂

  8. My favourites are “Egret and Wave” and “I’ve got the Blues”

  9. it’s nice to see that “the blues are still blue, Jane. The clouds in the first photo are absolutely gorgeous and the staircase to blue is spot on. It looks like you had an amazing trip to the SouthLand.

  10. thanks for sharing these magical moments

  11. I love the blues here. 🙂

  12. The blue tones really stand out in the Fujifilm X-T2, which somehow seems to fit perfectly with Southern California in the winter.

  13. Love these Jane! Especially the last one.

  14. Blue makes me very happy as does the the fact someone, somewhere gets to still be in the water.

  15. This kind of imagery is so hard to do and these are so well done.

  16. Blue and white are such cliché coastal colours, but you can see why! Love the steps and the parasols.

  17. Love this series, Jane. Thank you for sharing your images, these are truly beautiful.

  18. That’s a lot of blue. My favourite, the parasols.

  19. Love those umbrellas and waves breaking!

  20. Beautiful images Jane 🙂 I could recognize those Fuji blue’s immediately. The skin tones are awesome also. Great work.

  21. Love the expansiveness of the beach shots, especially the first one. The depth of field looked as if went on forever.

  22. I loved your blues. To me blue is a color that means serenity, partially these blue tones that you have chosen.

  23. Yes, indeed, I enjoyed your blues 🙂

  24. Loving your beautiful images as always, thank you for sharing. Your quote of ” when people asking me about……………..” sounds very familiar to me, as I have could written it.

  25. Absolutely my favorite shades of blues! 😀 Lovely shooting. Particularly liked the stairway to blue heaven!

  26. Hi, Jane –
    Your photos are always amazing.
    We’ve been to Malibu.
    Malibu doesn’t do your photos justice.
    You make it look even better than we remember!
    Thanks.
    Yer ol’ pals,
    Dan & Lindsi

    • Hi Dan, How great to hear from you! Happy you’ve been there- I guess I make my subjects shine 🙂 Thanks so much for letting me know and it’s nice that you follow my work. Much appreciated. Hi to Lindsi!

  27. I enjoyed the blues very much and love how the placement of each photo flowed so well too – like the stairs and then ending with a more back view of similar (or same stairs).
    and while the water here is awesome – and cool surfers (the duo and their spacing has a friendship adventure vibe) my fav is that one of the stairs to the blue.
    from the reader – the lines and shadow of that one stood out.
    thanks for the beach trip via a post today
    🙂

  28. OMG do i wish i was in every one of these amazing shots……so relaxing & peaceful!!! beautiful Jane!!!

  29. Gorgeous Jane.
