First Look Photo: Skeksis in Maine

July 26, 2017

I found this cardinal on my way home Saturday morning.  It was missing its head feathers, which gave it the appearance of a skeksis from the movie The Dark Crystal.

The good thing about cityscapes is the different angles, and lighting makes each shot unique.

Photo Friday: City Lights

December 9, 2016

In this challenge, I wanted to photograph city lights in a different way.  Most of the photographs I see has a pretty solid skyline, so I thought I would break that up with the mostly dark condos in the middle ground.  I included the condo with all the lights on to add a little balance to the overall image.

Keeping in mind these challenges are not all about the camera, this shot was taken on my little point and shoot, while on a trip to the grocery store.city-lights

Photo Friday: Daily Photo Challenge

December 2, 2016

The way I figure it, if I wish to maximize my photography practice, I need to come up with daily photo challenges.  For my blogs I will pick the best of the week for both days.

I started my first challenge yesterday, and one last night for challenge 2.  The second challenge was better so here it is.  In this challenge I had to do something creative with Christmas lights.  I took a wine glass I used for an earlier school assignment, and positioned the lights at a distance behind it.  I call the piece “Sparkling”.

If you have any ideas for fun photo challenges, let me know.  I will write them down.
