Week 46. – #3. Aged To Perfection

The Blackburn Point Bridge is an historic swing bridge located near Osprey, FL and listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.  It is a one-lane swing bridge located on Blackburn Point Road at the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. It is the northernmost of the two bridges connecting the barrier island Casey Key to the mainland of Florida. Constructed by the Champion Bridge Co. and opened to traffic in December 1926, it is “aged to perfection” and traffic crosses it daily. Because of its age, I have elected to process my photo with a vintage look.

Week 45 – #35. Starts With A “C”

What could be more appropriate for something which “starts with a ‘c” than a cactus?  The aloe plant is a member of the cactus family.  Your mom was onto something when she snipped off the tip of an aloe leaf and squeezed the gel onto your sunburn or cut. The plant has been shown in studies to help heal minor wounds eight days faster than standard dressing.35 Starts with a c _MNH7621

Week 44 – #5. Artistic

I have never considered myself an “artistic” person so I have struggled trying to come up with something suitable to post for this week’s theme.  I went to a lily pond recently with some friends and when I looked at my photos on the computer, something struck me about this photo. Wondering if I could use some of the many filters stored on my computer, I began experimenting and the end result is this photo.  I hope you like my artistic effort.

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.
