Shadows against the evening sky tonight.
Circa 1972, just the MGB is gone, but definitely not forgotten. However, the beautiful young gal in the matching flame wig is as gorgeous as ever.
Weekly Photo Challenge: Converge Yesterday was one of those magical days in Vancouver. There was fresh snow on the ground and the air was crisp and cold with the sun shining from a blue, blue sky. Although I posted a farewell to Photography 101 with its a wrap, I did indeed “get out and explore” as Cheri had suggested, and with Ben’s convergence very much on my mind had an early morning walk along Kits beach as the sun began to rise.
A little later in the morning it was the turn of Spanish Banks where the tide was out.
It was one of those days that just doesn’t get much better.
Photography 101: Weekend Four – Compile and share your favorites in a post.
Photography 101: Double – Today, you and your camera are seeing double.
Photography 101: Edge – Today is all about straight edges, and tweaking your image to ensure your lines are perfectly positioned.
The Weekly Photo Challenge: Converge – Photos are visual spaces where shapes and lines, objects, and people come togetherI was going to discard this over-exposed photo that I took last weekend of a girl in a red scarf walking along the railway tracks. However, after a little editing the image developed a certain edginess that had a mesmerizing quality to it. I hope you agree. I originally posted this for Photography 101 two days ago but with Ben’s Weekly Photo Challenge today asking us to “explore the ways lines and shapes can converge in interesting ways through photography” I have updated the post for Ben’s challenge as it seems to be the perfect fit, particularly as I had originally thought of giving it the title “The Vanishing Point Vanishes”.
Photography 101: Glass – Incorporate glass in today’s image: a window, a mirror, a wine glass, sunglasses, or something else. It doesn’t matter what form the glass takes.We brought this beautiful glass sculpture back from Prague some years ago. I hope you agree its perfect for Cheri’s Photography 101 task today.
Photography 101: Treasure – Show us something (or someone) you cherish, and get up close.This treasured ring belongs to my greatest treasure of forty years who happily answered yes.
Photography 101, Weekend Three: Hone your camera eyeThis weekend’s exercise covers most of the assignments from the past three weeks of Photography 101 all in one post, and even manages to meet the weekly Photo Challenge: Angular. On Saturday morning, after reading Cheri’s suggestion to observe and capture an entire scene, I took my trusty Pentax Kr and did just that. Burrard Bridge is an Art Deco style bridge that was opened in July 1932 and is one of Vancouver’s three bridges that cross False Creek with English Bay shimmering to its west. Saturday morning saw the usual joggers, walkers, cyclists and cars all making up a wonderful potpourri of colours and movement, which I hope you will enjoy.
