Now, why are you taking a picture of that?
June 25, 2014
This week's challenge selection is Now, why are you taking a picture of that? by Katney. Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Lew, and Christine Anne.
We've all been there, right? You see something that you're compelled to photograph--perhaps something that is not a traditional subject. Sometimes, it's the colors that catch your eye, or perhaps a reflection, sparkle, composition, unusual angle... Oh heck! Who needs an excuse?! Sometimes a fella just feels like he has to shoot something! I digress. The point is, that we sometimes get a quizzical reaction from people when we snap our pics. They're wondering, now why are you taking a picture of that? The header is a setup I created where I borrowed an ant from his work on the peonies in my front yard. I used a thin strand of wire to hold my "model" in place for the portrait shoot. "Alright Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up."
I hope you appreciate that I did my footwork for this photo collection:
|My daughter's new boots after she frolicked through the flowers... on moist terrain.|
|A bride's shoe. It reminds me of Cinderella.|
|A horde of teenagers stormed my house.|
|It looked like I was taking a picture of the fence in the dark. But I focused manually and used the flash to catch a lightning bug.|
|This kite fooled me into thinking it was a hovering bird of prey.|
|This shot had me looking like I was aiming at the siding of my own house. My neighbors must think I'm loony!|
|Camera on the ground - in front of a car's headlights - in the rain. Yep; that's normal.|
Addendum: With these comments I've heard about the ant, I should tell you that I returned this ant unharmed to his work in the flowers. :-)
