Later in the week you may see this Thin Man (oh that could be another cover) but I couldn’t resist using my Halloween card as cover art for the Weekly Photo Challenge Cover Art. BTW, literary folks, I do know the real title for Damon Runyon’s story is “When Death Pays A Social Call” but I couldn’t get all the words to fit in the space. Maybe I’ll get a better font app in my Tricker or Treat bag. :)
Snoopy and the Red Barron In the SF Bay at low tide.
For the 40 plus years I’ve lived in the SF Bay Area Snoopy in the sopwith camel has made his home on various pylons out in the bay near the East Shore freeway. When stuck in traffic I have occupied tired children and myself playing find Snoopy. Now there is a whole installation that allows us to walk right up and inspect him. There still is one small loan Snoopy way out if you look carefully but hard to photograph.
I guess this qualifies for both Cee’s Which Way and Odd Ball Challenges I just didn’t get it published in time for the Sunday Challenge and wanted to show it off after finally stopping to look at it after all these years.
October is the best weather, with lots of warm sun around San Francisco Bay. That means many of us are out in or near the water but there is so much glare colors are washed out, and often we in the East Bay are facing directly in to the sun; making it hard to get a good photo. Turning the images into black and white creates drama and tells more interesting stories.
Which story speaks to you?
Sorry I’m so late today but life happens. Happy Monday Challenge one and all!
Do you have your witch ball in place for Halloween?
According to folk tales, witch balls would entice evil spirits with their bright colors (and refracted light);the strands inside the ball would then capture the spirit and prevent it from escaping. They must work because my garden is free of evil spirits!
I really like sparkly refracted light this is my second post for This challenge.
I had no idea what I had to offer for the macro challenge today until I went into the kitchen and ray of light hit this turkey feather left and forgotten on a window sill. Leaning over the sink I captured a few images before the sun lit shadow dance diapered. Law of Similars I find the feather tips look a little bird like as they sway across the image. What do you think and which do prefer?
