BBW 30-Day Photo Challenge – Day 2: Flight

04 Apr

As I said in yesterday’s post, Saturdays are difficult for me. So my Day 2 photo for the Blessed Beyond Words Photo Challenge is posted late.

I think I also had a lot of trouble with the word. Unfortunately I didn’t see many things that implied flight to me apart from the obvious. And being with the kids, it was difficult to take off after a bird or a butterfly that caught my eye. In the end I settle for something that suggested flight to me, however I am not sure I executed it very well, so I’ve included an insert photo so that you can see what it is, and where my inspiration came from.

I also hope that you enjoy other photos that I have found that inspire the idea of flight.

Again, I have decided to put together a gallery of images that are inspired by the word ‘flight’. I hope you enjoy my Flight Images Gallery on Flickr.

And here is my somewhat feeble attempt at today’s word. It really challenged me. Better luck tomorrow.

8 “Natural” Wonders [Shoot a Word]

13 Jan

Take a word and shoot to that theme – that’s what I do with the Challenges that I undertake, but it’s amazing what others can do with a word and their interpretation of it.

I selected natural today – see some amazing examples of “natural” photography below.

January Challenge: Bird Next to the Drain

Practicing Depth of Field (notice the focus on the bird) and keeping lines straight (the drain is vertically positioned).

I’m always amazed at how many small scraps of paper and such are on the ground.

Interesting feather detail. The bend and the overlapping fronds give this almost a texture.

My very own interestingness…
