Penniless pictures

Mist, dusk, dark, sunset, sunrise, and seawater

I'm sure every photographer takes some pictures 'just for the fun of it' or 'to see how they'll turn out'. None of the images here is ever going to earn me a penny... But taking 'em in the dark is always going to be more interesting than dull old daylight.

Also, this gallery gives me a chance (in the extended captions) to ramble on about the philosophy of photography.
