Ragtag Daily Prompt: Glass

Against her better judgement, Princess Pirouette agreed to GarGar’s request that they take an evening stroll on the southern terrace. With Lady Greenmeadow and Abigail Hoffenhoff walking a respectful ten meters behind them, Pirouette felt reasonably safe. She even let GarGar, le comte des Deux Chats take her arm and slip it inside his own. “Please do let me escort you properly,” he said. By the glow of the torchlight, GarGar’s eyes shimmered seductively. Pirouette did her best not to look into his face for more than a second.

When GarGar paused in front of one of the large windows that looked into the grand ballroom, he released a long, heartbreaking sigh. “Look at our reflection in the glass!” He said. “Don’t we make the perfect couple?” This was one of those rare moments when Pirouette was at a loss for words. If she said, “yes,” it would be tantamount to an agreement to marry. If she said, “no,” it would be an immutable rejection, and so she said nothing. She simply sighed.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #141: Geometry

Here is my contribution to Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Geometry.

The Maryland Statehouse is a stunning masterpiece of interior and…

…architectural design.

There’s an overload of geometrical shapes in the images above- lots of rectangles with a few perfect squares thrown in, and some lovely straight, A to B lines. In fact, if you look closely at near center, you will see a jet engine trail, again A to B!

A Photo a Week Challenge: Unexpected Focus

Here is my contribution to Nancy Merrill Photography’s Photo a Week Challenge: Unexpected Focus.

If one relies on autofocus, this is the result when you try to shoot through a chainlink fence.

Here are some daffodils that I shot just for this challenge. I’ve been having a lot of fun with the image-compare feature. In this instance, it doesn’t work perfectly, but I think it suits the needs of this challenge. I’m looking forward to seeing how others approach unexpected focus.
