Jez’s WWE Challenge #10, January 14, 2020

WWE 12.jpgWWE 5These photos were taken on January 11, 2020.  The second one is a favorite technique of mine.  I’ll focus the camera on something on the shoreline and use the water as background.  These are my entries for Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere challenge.

Ragtag Daily Prompt: Stationary

GarGar 3Max & Gar 2The guards around the palace were stationary.  They stood at attention, silent as the grave, for hours at a time.  Personally appointed by King GarGar, the palace guards were considered the elite force of the Kingdom’s soldiers.  Impressive as they were when at attention, they were even more interesting when they were on parade.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #79 : Window With a View

Monday window 1This window faces a courtyard at the Annapolis Mall.  Not terribly romantic, but I find the reflection with the fish intriguing.  The color of the awning matches the reflection remarkably well.  Could the awning be reflecting its light onto the glass?IMG_0043These windows look down on Duke of Gloucester Street in downtown Annapolis.  Old trees line the way in this part of town, where almost all the buildings are made of brick.  If you squint, you can pretend you are a patriot in the Eighteenth Century.Monday window 7This lucky window gets to spend its days looking down on the Chesapeake Bay.

Cee’s FOTD Challenge: January 14, 2020

Pink 8Pink 6 petuniasPink 9Today for Cee’s Flower of the Day challenge, I’d like to look at the color pink and some of its various shades.  Do the petunias look pink to you? When I saw them, I thought that they looked pink, but in retrospect, I’m not so sure anymore.  What should be painfully obvious is my continued devotion to the macro.  I suppose I will burn out on them eventually.

Taking a page out of Jez Braithwaite‘s book, I’ve been dabbling with posting photos of bouquets.  Today I’m taking a break from that; however, don’t be surprised to see a bouquet tomorrow or the next day!  I think it’s nice to step back once in a while and take a look at the big picture, rather than zooming into every crevice, shining a bright light.
