Sometimes it works
This is an old post that I started but didn’t care for the way it turned out. The pictures were too good not to post, so I am going to just delete my useless ramblings and post it for the photos.
I saw the shape of the spray from the fountain, and the shape of the way the flowers were growing next to the pond that the fountain is in, and thought that the shapes were similar enough, that if I got everything lined up just right, it would make a great photo. The problem, it was a nasty, cloudy day with a gale blowing through our area. I could not get the flowers and the fountain lined up the way I wanted, no matter how I tried to time the gusts of wind. I’ll go back and try again, maybe I won’t like what I end up with, but I think it’s worth a try.
But, every once in a while it does turn out the way I saw it when I shot the picture.
I wanted to show the fuzzy texture of the grass seed heads, the way the light played off the fibers of the seeds, the way the wind shaped them, and the feeling of what kind of day it was that day.
Or this one.
I can only imagine how helpless and alone I would feel if I were caught in a spider’s web. I took other shots zoomed in closer, but they didn’t convey the sense of loneliness that I wanted the photo to show.
Or this one.
Just two leaves, one green, one yellow, lined up so that they appear to be one leaf.
Nothing special, nothing really dramatic, but I like to let nature provide the art, and I’ll just show up to record it.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
