I put my first photo sequence on this Web site around the beginning of 2012. After I had taken some pictures of a Great Egret
landing on Oso Flaco Lake,
I realized that this series of images would be much more interesting if kept together, rather than spread across seven different pages.
The only other sequence before 2015 was a series of 18 photos showing ocean water filling up Thor’s Well
at Cape Perpetua.
My interest in sequences was reawakened in early 2015 when I was testing my new Panasonic ZS50 camera
by taking pictures at the bird feeder in my backyard.
The resulting Bird Feeder 2015
album contains four different sequences, including an entertaining 24-image series of a sparrow.
As a result of my numerous photo outings to Portland over the past few years, sequences are popping up in my albums like mushrooms! I created a whopping 42 during 2015! Like most of the previous sequences, many of these communicate motion in the subject being photographed, like a bridge being raised, a dog at a water fountain, or a musician performing.
However, I have also been experimenting with some different types of sequences which demonstrate dynamics other than motion. One interesting variation illustrates differences in focus by using a shallow depth of field.
Up until now, all of these sequences have consisted of multiple photos presented together in a series. But I have also created a sequence of a single picture processed a few different ways. You can read all the details in the article Daylight, Twilight, Moonlight.
The dozens of sequences I have created are contained in numerous different albums, spread over a period of many years, which makes them hard to find. Therefore I have gathered them, and any future sequences I may create, into this multi-year conglomerate ‘super-album’.
