Photography in Pearls – Lens-Artists: Creepy

This week, Ann-Christine has asked us to share something creepy.  I had a hard time finding anything creepy in my recent photos and had to go back to 2017 to find photos for this post.

I am not an early riser so I couldn’t believe it when I signed up for a sunrise excursion  to Boneyard Beach in Awendaw.  My best friend who is also a photographer convinced me to go.  It meant a 2AM wakeup to get to the rendezvous point.  But it turned out to be a great day with lots of good photos to show for it.

So much so that I convinced my daughter (also a photography who is also not a morning person) to go.  Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate and we had an overcast sunrise and it extremely cold.  (I can’t convince her to go again!)

Boneyard Beach is on Bull Island which is 7 miles of undeveloped land.  It’s accessible by ferry only.  Because of tides and erosions, the forest on Bull Island is now water stranded and the beach is full of driftwood and dead trees.

You have to admit that with the rain, cold temperature and overcast sky that at least on this day Boneyard Beach looks very creepy.

Photo Challenge – Lens-Artists: Trees

This week Ann-Christine has asked us to share anything involving trees.

Bare Tree Original

This tree is located outside my doctor’s office.  I’ve been going there a while and at each visit, it looks the same as the visit before.  It is always bare no matter the season and it always catches my attention.  After several visits, I finally was there on an overcast day and was able to get a shot of it.

Bare Tree

I’ve been working in Illustrator and Photoshop and decided to play around with my tree.  Above is the negative inverting the black and white.

 

And here are more of my tree variations.

These photos were taken at Linville Falls, North Carolina on the Blue Ridge Parkway this past weekend.  We had beautiful weather for a hike and awesome views of Mother Earth.

Photo Challenge – Danger!

This week we are asked to share a photo that says “Danger!”

Danger Off the Path

It’s a beautiful walk to the river but stay on the trail and beware of snakes and alligators.  I’m not sure why the orange and white barricade is there though.

Hurricane Matthew

We were extremely lucky.  Other than yard debris, we had no damage.  The tree belonged to our neighbor across the street and that’s hubby with the chainsaw.

Others in our neighborhood were not as lucky and most are still without power.  Two days without power was enough for me!

The photo on the left was taken during a lull in the storm.  The photo on the right was taken the day after.

Photo Challenge – Narrow

This week, our challenge is to focus on a narrow or slender image.

Augusta-3

All Things Narrow

This photo was taken at the Riverwalk in Augusta, Georgia and is a replica of the paddlewheel on Augusta’s last Stern-wheeler which was built in 1933 and wrecked in 1964. 

There’s a lot of “narrow” in this photo – the frame of the paddlewheel, the cracks in the sidewalk, the trunks of the trees, the light pole and the railings on the gate to the far left.
