Regular Random – Five Minutes with Color

Here are the rules:

Pick an item or scene and photograph it for five minutes using different angles and light.

I do not have a green thumb so I can’t believe that I actually went out and bought several plants for my back porch.  But I’d love to get more bee and butterfly captures so hubby and I went off to the garden store.

Orange Coneflower 2

I’ve fallen in love with coneflowers – I think their umbrella shape is beautiful.  I also bought trailing verbena, dianthus and lantana.

So here’s hoping that the bees and butterflies will find their way to my door – and that my new plants survive the summer under my care.

Five Minutes – Regular Random

Desley Jane hosts Regular Random each week.  The rules are:

Choose an object or scene and shoot for five minutes using different angles and lighting and try not to interfere with it once it’s set up.  I confess – I have problems sticking to five minutes but I did with this post.

These are photos of my home office where momaskedmeforarecipe.com, photographyinpearls.com and photographyinpearls.photoshelter.com come together.  On my desk is an encyclopedia of birds and one for flowers (I really want to know what I’ve just captured!) as well as several photography books and different cookbooks.  (The flower on the monitor is a plumeria.)

Trust me – it’s much neater than my “real world” desk!

Photo Challenge – Bridges

This week we are asked to capture any type or style of bridge.

Under the Ravenell Bridge

I live an hour north of Charleston but travel there at least once a month.  The Arthur Ravenell Jr bridge connecting Charleston and Mt. Pleasant fascinates me and I often stop for pictures.  You can see the bridge from downtown Charleston and there’s a park underneath the bridge on the Mt. Pleasant side.  I’ve also walked a portion of it twice.

You can see previous posts of the bridge from these links:

Photo Challenge – Delta

This week we are asked to share a picture that symbolizes transitions, change and the passing of time.

The Jellyfish

The tide comes in and goes out marking the passage of time – sometimes leaving evidence of its presence behind.

Photo Challenge – Transient

This week we are asked to share a photo of our interpretation of “transient”.

Gray Clouds and Waves

Clouds come and go as do the waves.  The beach is forever transient, ever changing and always a new source of inspiration.

From dark to light, always reminding us how small we are in this thing called life.

Photo Challenge – Focus

This week we are asked to share a photo that says “focus” to us.

A visit to Huntington Beach State Park always provides fantastic opportunities to catch the shore birds in action.  This particular visit was no exception.

Anhinga on Oyster Shells

An anhinga posed for me while perched on oyster shells until he was startled by other visitors walking on the causeway.

He took off as I desperately tried to adjust my camera speed to capture the moment – to no avail. 

 

I watched him fly away into the sunset – before I could get the perfect “focus”.
