I do not have a large office, and only have a queen size bed.  
This is who I share my every moments with when I am home.  
I was gone yesterday for a Vendor show.
We had a storm last night.
Another storm is due shortly. 
If I shift into the bedroom they will both follow.

Weekly Photo Challenge: What Signs Really Mean


Rescued

FaceBook Posting

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says

Signs. Funny, poignant, symbolic, incorrect, informative, foreshadowing…there are so many signs in the world.
Share a picture of a SIGN and explain why you chose that picture!
I found this on FaceBook and thought it was funny.  To take a sign and then take a picture of your pooch in the garbage?
Someone had an awesome sense of humor.   Even funnier to post as their status on FaceBook.
Perhaps taking a sign for exactly as written is not quite what was intended for this sign.
Here are what other Daily Prompt Weekly Photo Challenges were submitted:
There are several more so check them out…

Weekly Photo Challenge: In The Background Of My Yard


CIMG1410

 

As the Average person looks at this photo, They see a citronella candle sticking out of a bush.  A lawn with a series of trees.

What I see when I look at this photos is besides a shrub that needs to be trimmed is a sunset that is over Kentucky as I am standing in Tennessee.

On a regular basis I can sit and look out my window and watch a storm front pass over our area and head straight into Kentucky past those same trees, totally missing our area.

Huge bolts of lightening in the night sky that pass by that small space lighting it up as if it were day.  This night it was calm, the cloud formation was so beautiful as the sun was setting over the horizon over the state of Kentucky.

In the Background: The places that we pass through day after day, or even once in a lifetime, leave in their small way, echoes and traces of themselves upon us. But so often when taking self portraits or pictures of friends, the places themselves become a soft blurred mush of indistinct semi-nothingness, the limelight stolen by our smiling faces. In today’s challenge, let’s turn the tables. Take a picture of yourself or someone else as a shadow, a reflection, or a lesser part of a scene, making the background, or — as in the example above — the foreground, the center of attention. http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/05/24/weekly-photo-challenge-in-the-background/

What do you see in the Background?  Do you have photo’s that capture more than what is just present?  Would love to hear.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Theme of the Week is Future Tense


Weekly Photo Challenge: Future Tense

Shelby at birth

For the past two days, Miss Shelby decided that she wanted to come into the world a week early.  Her grandmother is in Michigan and due out next week the day before she was due.    A baby comes when they want to.  Her wonderful parents, Amanda and Jeff asked me if I would like to join them in helping with the birth as a coach.  I was honored.

After an all night session of contractions between three to five minutes apart after my arriving at the hospital at 7PM, he water broke at 4AM.  They had been giving her Pitocin in her IV to help encourage the contractions and actually stopped it at one point during the night to try and slow them down.

Shelby had a tough time coming into this world as the umbilical cord was not only wrapped around her neck, it was wrapped several times around her body.  She obviously liked the comfort of the womb.  Being Joined by a wonderful RN friend of the group, Christy was a wonderful asset in the witnessing and assistance of this birth.  It was nice to have an extra RN in the room who was off duty.

Once out, she really made her voice of the future heard.  She is the future tense.  It was a pleasure to have been a part of this celebration.  To watch the proud father cutting the umbilical cord and be handed the baby with the mother was an absolute honor and a site that is not soon to be forgotten.  More photos will follow on my blog as they are processed.

If you would like to post a Weekly Photo Challenge, here is the scoop on what it is about:

From heartfelt hopes about exam results, or being noticed by that oblivious boy in your class, to wishes for a prosperous or healthy future, you can think of them as prayers and hopes  made manifest and left in public. In today’s challenge we want you to grab an image from your world that holds the promise or portent of the future. It could be:

  • As everyday as the experience of waiting for a bus or train.
  • As abstract as something that symbolizes  your ambitions or hopes for the future.
  • A note, prayer or promise jotted on a napkin or cross-stitched with exquisite tenderness.
  • The promise or portent of spring, sunrise, or storm in nature.
  • A street candid of someone nervously waiting on their date to arrive.
  • A piano falling from a third storey flat into the oncoming path of an adorable kitten. Or any other action about to take place.
  • Anything that involves the present and a hint of the future all in one frame.

We spend so much of our lives thinking back, or looking ahead, and even though a photo captures only one moment in time, with a bit of thought it can freeze the process of moving forward, or the promise of things to come. Your challenge this week is to seal one such moment in amber.

pickIn a new post created for this challenge, share a picture that says FUTURE TENSE.

I’m looking forward to seeing your visions of the future, daydreams, and wishes frozen in time.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details


Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details

Lost in the Details. This challenge is about getting lost in the details. Once you’ve found a subject you want to photograph, challenge yourself to work a little further into the scene. Here, I use a landscape as an example, but this approach can be applied to other types of photography.

Landscape view of Elbow Falls. Photo courtesy of Christopher Martin.

Landscape view of Elbow Falls. Photo courtesy of Christopher Martin.

These two photographs are of Elbow Falls in Kananaskis Country in the Rocky Mountains, west of Calgary, Alberta. The draw of this location is the waterfall, and often, people are satisfied with the landscape view (shown on the right). But Elbow Falls is a place where there are many opportunities for great photographs beyond the obvious — you just have to push yourself to find them.

On one visit, I walked along the river’s edge above the falls, searching for details. As I observed the dark water, an arch of ice, only a couple of feet wide, caught my eye. The ribbons of colors and the textures in the ice were beautiful, and I enjoyed zooming in on this small landscape (above).

Working into a scene allows me to leave with a photograph that I really like. So, I challenge you to go out and spend extra time getting lost in the details — and finding a great shot.

SHARE A PHOTO THAT MEANS LOSTS IN THE DETAILS TO YOU!

Tip: Get low. In photographing details in a landscape, lower the camera close to the ground to see its impact on the composition. Whether you are using a digital SLR, a compact camera, or the camera on your phone, getting low changes the way elements relate to each other. In the image of the ice and the river, I sat down so the lens was close to level with the arch of blue ice. From a higher angle, the ice looked smaller in relation to the water; by changing my position, I was able to balance those two primary parts in a way I preferred.

Move the camera around to see how a scene changes. Get low, or reach higher for that matter, and bring out the details that are often hiding in plain sight.

Here are four views of the same object yet they are all different.

What are your ideas?

Would love to hear about them.
