My final tribute to Photo101. Thanks to everyone who took the time to look at my photos and for sharing yours with me. Until we meet again.
Participating in Photo 101 has given me a new perspective on photography. Gone are the days of a non-thinking 'point and shoot' mentality. Going forward, the photos I take will be more thoughtful and deliberate. Although I wasn't able to create a new photo for every assignment, just going through my old photos with a specific theme in mind helped … Continue reading Triumph (Day 20)
For today's assignment, I chose some of my favorite 'doubles'. Enjoy!
For today's assignment I was inspired by the storm clouds building over the house. As I snapped away at the clouds, I realized the edges of the roof created a frame of the clouds, trees, and sky I used the same technique for this older photo showing rain dripping off the roof. The two … Continue reading Edge and Alignment (Day 18)
I reserve the right for a re-do. I struggled with today's assignment, mainly because I do my assignments after I get off work or in the early evening, and I had little to work with (including imagination). I added a few old photos just because. Let's start with wild and crazy. Last mother's day I received a beautiful hummingbird feeder … Continue reading All About Glass (Day 17)
My grandparents never threw anything away. By today's standards, they might have been considered hoarders, although the overflow was confined to sheds, dressers, and cabinet drawers. They were a product of The Great Depression, believers in the notion that you never knew when something might be useful. As a child, rummaging through my grandmother's treasurers was one … Continue reading Treasured Memories (Day 16)
I love landscapes, although I rarely do justice to the beauty that captivates the natural eye. For this assignment, I chose several of my favorite landscape photographs to showcase, including a few that were used for previous Photo 101 themes. My first two photos were taken last summer (August 2015) in The Badlands National Park, South Dakota. … Continue reading Landscapes and Cropping (Day 15)
The Colorado Rockies provide the 'scale' of today's photos. Their massive frame drapes everything around them.
Humans experience time as a series of continuous moments, all strung together. One moment feeds the next and we don't notice where one ends and the other begins. What makes a photograph special is that it captures a single, unobserved moment before it disappears forever. This photograph was taken at Galveston Beach. It was April 20, 2013, late … Continue reading A Moment in Motion(Day 13)
I love black and white photography, and enjoy taking picture of architecture. Unfortunately, I had to resort to using existing photos but I found several that capture the theme of Architecture in Monochrome. I hope you enjoy them. This first photo is Pemaquid Point Lighthouse in Bristol Maine. This is actually the second Pemaquid Lighthouse, build in … Continue reading Architecture in Monochrome(Day 12)
