Patti sets up an awesome challenge this week and opens with a photo that blew my socks off! Took me a while to find a new pair of socks and venture out with my camera. Actually, it wasn’t so much the socks that caused the delay as it was the weather. You see, shadows and reflections require some strong light, and I happen to live in Oregon…and it’s February still. So when the late afternoon sun came through my windows today, I grabbed the camera to see if I could capture some of the magic thrown off by the nuclear fusion going on 93 million miles away. I set my Canon to Monochrome and started looking around. Here’s what I found:
I don’t have any inspirational quotes or deep philosophies to go with this challenge. I just want to share the fun and gratitude of getting up and finding something beautiful close by. Light is beautiful. I’m sure you Lens-Artists agree!
These are great shots! I especially love the clouds and their reflections….and I only just discovered that your posts have been going to a sub-file for heaven knows how long. So glad you’re still out there writing and taking pics!
Thanks so much, Stephanie! Yep, still hanging out on this blog about once a week. I enjoyed your sea mist photos very much indeed. 🙂
Lovely shots, is it better to change lens either on camera or phone to monochrome or edit after the shot has been taken. Would be interesting to find out 😊
You know, that’s an interesting idea, Alison. Not sure what the differences would be.
It’s easy to do on the phone
My phone is not very smart. I don’t use it for photos.
I do have a nice Canon PowerShot but my photos always come out blurred, I need to have a steadier hand!
I’m glad you waited for your new socks and the weather. Loved the first image. All careful selected to add to the challenge.
Glad you found your socks 😂 Great shots; love the distorted reflections in the curved windows 😃
Yeah, those distortions surprised me. I know glass is actually a liquid, but this house isn’t that old!
What a great example of being inspired by the light close to home. I love the reflection of the tree tops in the window, as well as the clouds and tree in the first oval image. Wonderfully creative, Priscilla!
Thanks, Patti! I appreciate your motivating prompt.
So well said and shown Priscilla – love that Patti nudged you to go out and seek the beauty! My favorite of the set is your self-portrait. Terrific!
Well done Priscilla! Glad you grabbed your camera and got out.
