Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Curves and Arches

This week we are sharing photos of curves and arches. The first one is an unusually deserted hallway at a local hospital.

Next is a curvy critter that we saw on a recent hike – I used a long lens for this one 🙂

Last is a photo of some natural arches that I took on a recent trip to a park.

Lens Artists Challenge – Seen Better Days

This week we are sharing photos of things that are old, dilapidated or vintage. I have three examples. The first one is from last year that I took while on a boat ride in Florida on the Homosassa River. This house has definitely seen better days.

The next photo is from a recent trip to Alligator River Wildlife Refuge on Roanoke Island in North Carolina. This place has a lot of bear that can be seen on a regular basis in the spring and fall. We didn’t see any this trip but saw evidence of them.

The last image is one on a bike trail we frequent. It is a house built in the late 1700’s – early 1800’s. It first served as the Dismal Swamp Canal’s lock keeper’s house, then as a store for a lumber company, a commission booster for a pioneer telegraph line through this part of the state, a tea room and a private home. I love stopping at the site every time we go by it.

Lens Artists Challenge – Going Wide

There are times where some subjects are better portrayed with a wide angle view. Here are a few examples that I have chosen (each one is under 30 mm)

A wide view was definitely needed for this “fog bow” at the beach.

In this next photo, I was attempting to get the entire piano keyboard into view.

The last photo is my first lightning shot. I cropped it quite a bit and wished I had a longer lens on this particular occasion.
