I never thought I’d have a use for this photo, other thank looking at it for fun. But it seems to fit perfectly with the prompt; narrow. This is a pretty narrow fire on the beach. It was taken in the Bahamas a few years ago.
I don’t have much to say about this week’s photo. This little girl is the icing on my cake. She’s my cherry on top. And unsurprisingly, she’s climbed into my lap as I’ve typed these few sentences.
In this photo you can see all of the details in this little guy’s eyes. You can see all of the hairs on his (or her) body, and some of the hairs on the legs. You can also see the detailed pattern on it’s wings.
It’s not often we get close to a critter like this. A picture is always helpful to exploring the details.
My first instinct was to take my camera outside and look up at the sky until I found something to take a picture of. The only problem with that is that it’s about 10,000 degrees Kelvin outside, and I don’t want to put my body or my camera through that.
So I settled in, with the air conditioning blasting, to look for an older picture that fit this prompt. I actually found one rather quickly. It’s one I’ve been holding on to for a while, waiting to use. It’s not a particularly spectacular picture, I just think it’s interesting.
Another Photo Challenge!
Since I don’t have as much time today–due to typical American celebrations of independence including, but not limited to grilled foods, alcohol, and explosives– I’m just going to go ahead and post my photo challenge.
I wasn’t sure what I would to do for this one. I was thinking about trying to capture some natural occurrence of opposites, but I thought a lot of people may do that. I decided to go for a more simple idea; black and white.
For this prompt, I had many photos in mind. I made a short list of the photos in my archives that I would consider using for this challenge, but I erased the whole thing when I came across this one. It was just too cute not to share.
This week, with all the terrible things happening around the world, it’s refreshing to take some time to think about our victories. Victories can be personal, or the can affect a large group of people. I wasn’t sure what personal victories i had photo of, so I decided to go with a larger-scale victory.
Lots of things happen beneath your feet that you don’t even realize. How often do we step on things that we didn’t even know were there? There are thousands, probably millions or billions of tiny organisms under our feet every time we take a step. There are also lots of buried things deep in the ground beneath us that we don’t give a second thought to.
For me, Inspiration comes from lot of things, and sometimes from nothing. Sometimes, a thought just pops into my head, and I spend some time with it. Other times, I have to spend some time thinking, before I get that spark. Usually spending time alone, in a quiet place, helps with that. I don’t live near the ocean, so most of the time, deep into the woods is where I go. But on the occasion that I am near the beach, spending some time alone on the rocks can be pretty inspiring.
