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 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 36 – #36. Out Of Focus

Slowing down the shutter and moving the camera while pressing the shutter release gives some interesting photos which can be used as textures or overlays. I have a folder of out of focus photos which I use just for that purpose. Give it a try. You can get some really interesting textures and overlays and they are quite easily captured. This photo, for example, was taken in my front yard in Chattanooga.
