Week 10, #7 View From Below (Composition), Palm Trees


I was walking down Main Street in Lakewood Ranch the other night and was admiring how the palm trees looked.  They were illuminated from below and it created some interesting shadows in the canopy.  I didn’t have my camera, so I took several photos with my iPhone.  This is the winner from the group of photos.  Unedited.

Week 6, #31 Eye Lines (Composition), Sasha

DSC_3412This is Sasha, my parent’s dog.  I was visiting them last week and decided to try out my new camera.  I took several images of Sasha and in each one, she was never looking at the camera, almost as if she were avoiding it.  There isn’t much in the direction she is looking so I’m left wondering, what is she looking at?

Week 5, #3 Fill the Frame (Composition), Dragonfly

DSC_2487So I was sitting in my living room and I heard this loud noise on my porch.  I went out to investigate and found this dragonfly bopping around hitting everything on the porch: the light, the window, the door, the plants, even me!  I ran in to grab my camera and came back out.  He continued to fly and run into things for several minutes before he landed on one of my plants.  I was able to get a total of 3 images of him before he took off again, running into everything in sight.  He apparently flew through a spider’s web and got it stuck on his wings, freaking him out.  I was able to get him to land on me and I was able to get the spider web off of his wings.  He promptly flew away after I removed it.

This was the best of the three images I captured of him.  It is my submission for “Fill the Frame.”
