Where’s My Backpack posted the challenge of benches for all of us to have some fun with. I’ve encountered a lot of benches on my travels and honestly I don’t take the time to sit on them. I’m usually running around looking at all the details around me. But here are a few of my favorites.
Sit With Me – Portland, OR
Wakheena Falls benches
Hot Springs, AR checker board benches
Cee is challenging us with a series on colors! This challenge is for black & white or sepia. I really like the tones but have determined that you must have some good photos to do the colors – or lack thereof – justice. Some good contrast or the right object for the sepia.
So here are a few photos for you to enjoy!
When I first read the word “arranged” for this week’s post I was reminded of one of my favorite prints of Ansel Adams “Rose & Driftwood”. I have read that it is the only contrived photo that he offered. The rose is rumored to have come from his mother’s rose bush. I have it in my collection. So when my own rosebush bloomed last year I decided that I would take that inspriration and use the piece of driftwood that was beaver made to do my own version. Now do not get me wrong – I am nowhere near the artist that Mr. Adams was but I enjoyed the take on it as I found the beaver made driftwood at a river and the rose was one from my own rose bush.
The second photo I want to share with you is the cover photo for my “Flowers For Your Coffee Table” book. I arranged several spring flowers on the bench in my arbor for this photo.
Mundane = ordinary or commonplace
So here are a few photos of things that are ordinary but looking at them in an un-ordinary way…
San Diego Marina
Sit With Me
Yellow Rose Visitor
Me Or The Bee?
How Sweet In Pink
Dangerous Bird Perch
Sometimes I run out of creative names for photos – this is one of those times….
With the rainy weather in Texas yesterday it reminded me of a rainy day in Portland I once enjoyed.
