Photo Challenge – Lens-Artists: One Image/One Story

This week we are asked to tell a story with just one photo. We can tell multiple stories but each story can only use one photo.

A friend and I were at at the beach to catch the rising of the orange moon. There were several groups of people out including the two in the photo above – a father and son fishing in the ocean. All is not as it seems though. In talking with the man, he said he had no idea who the boy was! The boy came up to him earlier to see if the man had caught anything and stayed.

Polo anyone? This was a first for me. We actually went because there were going to be hot air balloons after the games. But by that time, the winds had picked up and the balloons only went 10 to 15 feet off the ground. But despite that disappointment, we had a good time with my daughter and her boyfriend. One thing we learned about polo though – the players don’t bring their horses with them. It’s too difficult and expensive so they use the horses at whatever location they are at.

This photo is my first attempt at shooting fireworks. The fireworks are shot from a barge in the inlet and the timing is coordinated with the tide. The marsh walk is always crowded so we usually take our chairs to the church adjoining the marsh walk. Everyone brings their chairs or blankets and there are plenty of “ohs” and “awes” from the crowd.

  1. Such interesting stories – and great photography, as always! I didn’t know about the polo players and their horses, so I learned something new as well. And I really loved your first story – very surprising end!

  2. The story of the boy and the man is actually a little heart warming. Nice action shot of the pool players, and interests trivia.

    It’s tough to capture fireworks, in my opinion. I guess I am not patient enough. Stellar job. Donna
