Weekly Photo Challenge: Vivid
One photo, every day! This was such an interesting exercise. It’s one thing to point a click when I see something I like and want to record, but the challenge came in focusing on a specific theme every day.
When I read the assignment, the first thing that came to mind was, of course, bees…..or atleast some insects. But this is November and all those guys are tucked away. I certainly did not expect to find a “swarm” in an art gallery exhibit. But, voila! There it was.
And that is what I have taken from this workshop. It’s all about keeping my eyes (and my mind) OPEN. 🙂
I’ve gathered a few of my favourite photos here, taken this month. But I am very happy to report that I did manage to rise to the challenge every day….even the weekends. It was fun!
Thanks for coming along with me.
Landscape – The easiest assignment, I thought; just point and shoot. Right? But that’s not how it played out. I started taking photos early this morning. But each time I looked again, the change in light had completely altered the scene. (Reference last weekend’s assignment) I’ve finally settled on this latest shot, taken in the late afternoon. I love this golden afternoon light! And how nice for those lovely clouds to show up as if on cue. I didn’t need to crop at all, but I did focus on keeping that horizon level.
Photos, art - and a little bit of LIT.
