From Clicking to Creating
This weeks Dogwood 52 challenge is an interesting one. Contrasts, in the category of composition. The definition is to have contrasting elements in the photo. Smooth/rough, hard/soft, that kind of an idea.
I decided to photograph this rose against the brick wall. It really is contrasting in a couple of ways. Pretty/ugly, soft/hard, delicate/sturdy.
It’s a fun idea to think about, and come up with ideas for photos.
For the 2 Lil Owls this week, the prompt is Close Up. I started looking around in the mother in laws yard for something interesting for this. She has a bunch of Iris’s that are in various stages of bloom, and un-bloom. I don’t know if this one is going to bloom, or did and is now withering away. But I love the texture, and shape.
While I was looking at the flowers, this damsel fly landed and sat still long enough for me to get some shots. This is the image I am using for Close Up.
Short post this week. We are trying to get on the road in the next couple of days, and we have to get everything finished up for the art shows. We are heading to South Dakota to get our drivers licence, then making our way to Wyoming.
What have you guys created this week? Maybe try the contrasts idea.
