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?
What once was revolting and
a rebellion, then became revolutionary
is now quite ordinary.
The solar system revolves on the back
of the tattooed lady in front of me
at a wedding ceremony.
The bride wears her mother’s dress
and big back combed hair for
a look that would be extraordinarily revolutionary in 1953.
Sunday, I spent most of the wedding trying to take a picture of the tattoo, knowing I would use it in a blog but not so soon. But Margo Rody gave us the challenge of There and Back Again..Does this work?
