Week 43 – #20. Negative Space

Lately I have become interested in using different lenses and techniques with flower photography.  This type photography is referred to as “shooting through.”  I honestly did not take this photo with “negative space” in mind; however, when I loaded it to my computer, I definitely saw that it would fit this week’s theme. I loved the softness.

Week 41 – 17. Macro/Close-Up

_MNH7271When I saw this tiny flower, I pulled out my “macro/close-up” Tokina 100mm, 2.8 lens and focused with the hope of getting the stamens in focus.  After trying several times, I managed to capture this photo.  I have no idea what the name is of the flower so if anyone knows, please let me know.

Week 40 – 48. What A Character

48 What A Character_MNH7468“Hey little boy … you with the big ears,” “Little boy, you walk like a girl,” “Hey lady, where did you steal that camera?” were only a few of the insults BoBo yelled at those who entered his space at the Sarasota Fair.  Yikes, “What a character” he was.  The insults never stopped the entire time I stood by his cage.

Week # 38 – #17. Misplaced/Lost/Missing Piece

My friend, Patricia, and I spent an enjoyable evening at the Sarasota Fair recently and when I looked up at the flashing sign for the Rock & Roll ride, I saw only the front portion of a pink Cadillac.  Obviously, there was a section “Misplaced/Lost” as the “Missing Piece” a/k/a the rear end, was nowhere to be seen.17.

Week 37 – #A6. Stripes

When my husband is watching sports on television, I have the perfect opportunity to sneak away and try new photography techniques. I decided to try my hand at light painting, grabbed the crystal ball, flashlight and gels and headed to a dark spot in the spare bedroom. Here is my attempt at creating something with red, white and blue “stripes.”a6-stripes-_mnh7092
