Week 4 – #19. Horses and Humans

When I go to the drum circle on Siesta Key Public Beach, I am prepared for many sights. I have seen many different forms of drummers, dancers with varying costumes (some more/some less), hula hoopers with glowing hula hoops twirled up, down and all around, itty bitty teenie weenie bikinis, children dancing … but wait a minute … horses and humans on the beach?

Week 3 – #26. Masked

Every Sunday beginning about an hour before sunset, the community drum circle plays at the Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota. It’s a free, improvised event with free-forming drumming. On any given Sunday evening from May through October, you’ll find people of all ages dancing or just gathering with a picnic and listening to the drumming. If you live in or around Sarasota, or if you are a visitor to our great city, I can recommend you spend an evening at the drum circle. Since this is such a fun event, I decided to place a fun masked frame around a photo I took recently. To see more drum circle photos, “like” our camera club Facebook website (http://www.facebook.com/lwrdpc), click on Photos, Albums, and Field Trip – August 10, 2014.

Week 2 – #17. High Above

When the positive and negative charges grow large enough, a giant spark – lightning – occurs between the two charges within the cloud. This is like static electricity sparks you see, but much bigger. Most lightning happens inside a cloud, but sometimes it happens between the cloud and the ground. (www.planet-science.com/categories/over…/what-causes-lightning.aspx)

As we were enjoying an evening with friends at Tarpon Point Grill & Tiki Bar on the Manatee River recently, high above our heads appeared angry, puffy clouds filled with intermittent lightning flashes. I was totally unprepared to capture lightning but did manage to get one shot showing a strike between the cloud and ground.

Week 1 – #11. Favorite Room

As I was dressing this morning for my appointment with Dr. Naomi Johansen, I was thinking that today was the beginning of our 2014 – 2015, 52-Week Photo Challenge. “I had better take my camera,” I thought, “because there may be an opportunity to take a photo to satisfy a theme.” So, I grabbed my camera, jumped in the car and headed for my appointment. I must admit that although Dr. Johansen is a lovely lady and wonderful doctor, an exam room is not my favorite room.

SUCCESS!

I successfully completed the 2nd annual 52-Week Photo Challenge and am anxiously awaiting August lst when I will once again participate in the 3rd annual challenge. Our 2014 – 2015 themes are posted and I am dusting off my Nikon and cleaning the lens! I can’t wait to see how my fellow bloggers will interpret the themes. Let the fun begin!

Week 52 – #A1. Black and White

For my last photo of this year’s 52-Week Photo Challenge, I have chosen to photograph Rembrandt’s Coffee House, a favorite early morning spot where I often enjoy a pastry, cappuccino or latte. Located on a tree-lined street on a hill in the museum district in Chattanooga, it is a quiet, quaint spot with outdoor seating underneath a flowering, vine-covered canopy. Once an apartment building reminiscent of European architecture, the building is now filled with various forms of art and, of course, the coffee house. I like how it looks in black and white.

Week 51 – #8. Distortion

Distortion is often the result when shooting with a wide angle lens. Although the bridge is distorted, I was somewhat pleased with the overall appearance of this photo, which I took with a Tokina 11-16mm lens at the waterline of the Tennessee River.
