In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Careful.”
A child’s treasure; a delicate gift.
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Forces of Nature.”
Despite a relentless winter, nature forces on. Its ferociousness in winter finally gives way to its gentle blossoming of spring.
A rusted bicycle wheel that I found in the woods while fishing rests on a shelf newly made from rustic barn boards. They are old, but new to me.
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “New.”
Having just returned from Amsterdam, it is not difficult to find a suitable photo for this week’s photography challenge theme, “Converge.”
I’ve chosen this one, a canal lined with houseboats and bordered by the unique architecture of The Netherlands:
There are signs all over that summer is finished for another year.
One of these signs is the changing colour of my hydrangea. When the petals turn pink, I know the end of summer is near. Like the leaves on the trees, they become more saturated as the weather cools.
This is my submission for this week’s photography challenge: Signs.
This is why I love photography: Finding works of art in our surroundings.
I never have to look far.

Flowers are expected to be colourful, whether their petals are saturated or quiet.

I like to look for different angles when I photograph. I move around until I find a point of view that I like, and more often than not, my favourite shots end up being the ones from an unusual standpoint.
In this one, rather than taking the shot facing the fence, I stood alongside it and used a shallow depth of field to give it that dreamy look that I love.
