I found this week's prompts for Scavenger Hunt Sunday a bit challenging. It was quite a stretch for my brain, but that is a good thing, right? Learning new things is good exercise. Hopefully these will be of interest to you.
The haphazard array of vegetation in this photo provides a great camouflage for a wide variety of objects that make their home in this wooded area.They are not easy to spot in this closeup photo, and even harder with the naked eye from a standing position. Can you find what I was looking for?
I found this interesting piece of art at the Tulsa Antique Show today. The square object in the center appeared to be plexiglass. The white area looked to be tiny bubbles. My guess is that the glass was heated, possibly with a torch drawn carefully over the glass until the design was formed. The intended message of the piece seems to be camouflaged within the sculpture itself. Were it not for the light behind the glass, one would have to look very close to realize that it had a form to it.
This is an old store piece that I saw at the antique show today. The signs on the top of the glass said SUPERB FOODS and HEADLIGHT COFFEE. I probably could have got a better shot of this if I had taken my time, but after I embarrassed myself by my poor choice of words when I asked the guy if I could take a picture of ... I hurried away.
3. Old Style
I was quite young when this old style of camera was the new rave on the market. It boasted of taking a picture that was instantly developed and printed within minutes. The flash attachment even made it possible to take nice photos indoors. Another bonus was that you could find out almost instantly if you the picture was satisfactory without having to send it off to be developed. If it wasn't quite right, you could try again. I liked it then, but I won't be trading my Canon for one now.
My husband bought me these tulips on the way to set up Friday morning. I didn't have a vase, but found a plastic canister to put them in. I arranged the flowers somewhat haphazardly in it, then after adding water, I tied a plastic bag loosely around the stems to keep them from leaning to far out of the 'vase'. By the next morning the had opened up nicely. I got home with them and started to move them into a real vase, but then I decided I kind of liked the thrown-together look.
It took a while for me to find the monochrome settings on my camera. I practiced with it in the dusty mirror for the fun of it. I kind of liked the old style look of it and decided to keep it. Maybe I should make it my profile picture!
I used a black back drop behind the tulips. I kind of like the effect. I had to take quite a few pictures to get the effect I wanted, but I'm happy enough with it for my first session with monochrome.
Thanks for stopping by today.
I don't claim to be a photographer, but I do love capturing the memories and I try hard to make my photos come out half-way decent. Scavenger Hunt Sunday is fun to do and disciplines me to keep practicing. I share my post each Sunday with the like below.
