Photo Challenge – A Face in the Crowd

This week we are asked to share a portrait but with a twist.  We are to use silhouettes, shadows or other techniques that mask the subject but yet still tell a story.

Foggy Beach

Several weeks ago, we had an unusual foggy day.  It covered the beach for most of the day and gave it a very eerie – but still beautiful – quality and provided yet another side of the character of the beach.

The fog did not deter this little bird.  He scurried along the surf looking for his lunch and found several tasty items.

I wasn’t the only one out to enjoy the weather.

Photo Challenge – Sweet

This week we are asked to share something sweet.

Welcome to Mom Asked Me For A Recipe!  “Mom” is my first blog and it’s what got me interested in photography.  After all, we eat with our eyes as well as our other senses so a pretty plate is the start of a great meal.

For better or worse, life has gotten hectic lately and I’ve had to cut back on some activities.  “Mom” took a lot of time for each post so I haven’t posted on it in a while.

 

But now that I’ve looked back on some of my “sweet” creations, I may rethink that decision so watch for another post soon.

The battles of Chattanooga and Chickamauga were the costliest battles in terms of lives lost during the Civil War.  Almost 50,000 soldiers sacrificed their lives during these battles.

Photo Challenge – Tour Guide

This week we are asked to share photos of where we live.

I usually share beach photos but today, I am showcasing the historic waterfront of Georgetown, South Carolina.  Full of southern charm, Front Street is home to locally owned businesses and some fabulous restaurants…

Another Look at January 6, 2016

Transition 1

January 6, 2016

I thought I would take another look at some of my first photos and see what editing changes I would make today.  I knew nothing about editing then so the top photo is straight out of the camera.

January 6, 2016 Edited

I like the difference the muted colors bring.  

Do you have a capture you would like to revisit?  I’d love to see what changes you would make.  Tag it “Another Look” so everyone can share.
