Daily Prompt: Out Of Place In This Land Of Confusion


Daily Prompt: Land of Confusion

Tell us about a time when you felt out of place.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us CONFUSION.

Prayers to all of the people who were hit by the Tornados this weekend

http://clarksvillenow.com/news/030030-photos-midwest-tornadoes/

You never know how precious life is until devistation hits.
The whirlwind of confusion of how to help or what to do.

Be safe, Be prepared and hug those around you.
Today they may aggrivate you and tomorrow they may be gone.

Love one another and try to help where you can.

Daily Prompt: My Normal Is Not Everyone’s Normal


Daily Prompt: The Normal

Is being “normal” — whatever that means to you — a good thing, or a bad thing?
Neither?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us EVERYDAY.

Each person is unique.  They all have a set pattern to their life.  This is an everyday occurrence and what is known as a “Normal Routine”.  
My “Normal Routine” is different that a family that has a baby, or several children to get to school, or a Professional Couple who travel to work each day.

Here are some words from Dr. Seuss:

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 16


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

Sixteen days on the road is a long trip.  Since I had planned for this to be a cross country trip in a way, to last at least 30 days that would put us at our road marker of the midpoint.

My grander scheme was to do this for a year.  I am not certain if I have the steam to do that.  Time will tell.  Can I make it interesting and vibrant enough  to keep readers attention and drive to want to come back each day to see where it has gone or will they fade from boredom?

My first stop is a blog site that is new to me and I have enjoyed the wonderful photography:

http://jennifernicholewells.com/ Check her out as she has been Freshly Pressed.

Next stop is a shout out to someone who wrote a poem to his wife as a gift for their anniversary:

http://ivonprefontaine.com/2013/05/22/marriage/ I felt compelled to mention that as the Daily Prompt today was about “Jealousy” and there is obviously nothing like that going on in their strong relationship.

Our Next stop is some more great photography:

http://carolwelsh.wordpress.com/ She never ceases to amaze me with her work.

Great reading ahead as we make our next stop so hold on to your seat:

http://whoatethedaisies.wordpress.com/ Not giving it away, you have to go see.

http://revisedgewater.wordpress.com/ Told you not telling…

http://stuphblog.wordpress.com/ I will say with this one I am glad that the YouTube Tuesday is back…There are great articles also.

For a blog site that has only been around since August of this Year, lets give a warm welcome to:

http://khanasweb.com Welcome aboard and may you have many blessed years of  Writing and Photography in your future.

Well that will do it for today as I have an article to write about why my stuff has been so short…allergies…

Till tomorrow…when we are on the road again…

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.
