12-23-14 Travel Challenge Weekly Theme Golden Yellow (2)

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Yellow.”

and the Travel Theme golden.

And my previous attempt: here

There is this…Now, I have to admit I can not, for the life of me remember what prompted this picture. I have no memory what idea I was playing with…

RSJohnson_120609_115-0115

I look at this and think, maybe I was playing with still life? or color palate? I doubt food photography but that is what brought it to mind as we are having our annual Christmas Eve party tomorrow night and the cooking and setting up has begun/is beginning.

‘Tis a mystery.

8-8-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

This weeks challenge is: Texture. (You knew that)

A little change in ISO and a little change in shutter speed certainly changes the texture of the water in Blackfish Creek.

ISO 6400 – f/5.3 – Shutter: 1/2 second

ISO 140 – f/5.6 – Shutter 15 seconds

RSJohnson_1408063808

A world of textural difference

5-29-14 Travel Theme: Metal (Deus Ex Machina Version)

You may recall from yesterday that Ailsa’s travel theme this week is metal. My first go was just yesterday (here). I have been out of the house since about 6:30 this morning and had no idea what I would blog about. I went to download some pictures from Tuesday and the answer struck me, like the sudden appearance of a rich uncle the hero never knew he had, in a bad 20’s young adult book. NYC has lots of metal but one thing truly stands out…the tourists best friend and worst nightmare…

5-17-14 Travel Theme Photo Challenge Blossom – A Work Of Art

“Not a single bee has ever sent you an invoice. And that is part of the problem – because most of what comes to us from nature is free, because it is not invoiced, because it is not priced, because it is not traded in markets, we tend to ignore it.”

Pavan Sukhdev, United Nations report, The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity.

 

WordPress in presenting their weekly photo challenge states: “Art isn’t just paintings and sculptures , it can be anything in which we find beauty and meaning -”

My first go is here.

Therefore, I do not feel I am cheating today.

Ailsa’s Travel Theme is blossom. I know I’m not cheating today.

I went out to Red Hook today as part of an ICP Boro Walk led by Kristin Holcomb (see…travel!) Pictures from that in the coming days. Here are two photographs I made today.

5-10-14 Travel Theme: Rivers

But I cried a river
A river for him
That’s deeper and wider
Than I’ll ever swim
The heart it will harden
The sorrow will dim
But I cried a river
A river for him

So weep for the sons
And the dear darling daughters
For the passing of time
And the parting of waters

For all who have passed through
This world long before me
To a far distant shoreline
Where no one waits for me

Emmylou Harris


Rivers. H’mm. Rivers. The travel theme from Ailsa at Where’s my backpack? is rivers. That is a tough one…

I wonder if I have any pictures of rivers…
