What did you miss this week? A lot of stretching of the prompts, enjoy!
In the Shade
6/27 Photograph In the Shade
Cool Down / Under the Umbrella / Relax
My son and his friend happily went into the shade for this picture, kind of hard to take a picture of such tall guys without cutting something off. I guess there are worse things than feet to lose in a picture. At least it's better than the picture someone took of them at the wedding in a couple pose. Can you believe I actually had a cashier ask me if they were brothers?
6/28 Photograph Traditional Wear
Native Dress / Classic / Historic
Picking Up My Golf Ball
6/29 Photograph Clean Up
Pick up / Collect / Compile
This was an iPhone picture as that was part of the prompt, along with using apps for processing.
We went golfing in the Lakes Region after I took pictures of a former lab employee's house for a real estate listing. It was harder than I thought as I had to do some editing afterwards to level the pictures. I read up on how to take the photos and my tripod came in handy.
6/30 Photograph Graffiti Walls
Art / Markings / Urban
Better than graffiti in my mind and this is a prominent wall downtown. I wonder if they will let it stay when they do their next revitalization project of downtown.
7/1 Photograph Refreshing
A Frozen Treat / Quenching / Revitalizing
This photo was taken with a tripod and a napkin was used for the "placemat". I should have straightened it a bit more. The camera was set up with the drive mode to take 6 pictures. The problem then was , do I pick a glass 1/2 empty or 1/2 full?
I picked the photo above because it has ice and the coffee is just flowing over the ice.
It was a beautiful day and I did manage to get some pictures of the flowers in the front yard.
These were taken with a macro lens.
Essential Summer Flower
7/2 Photograph The Essentials
Necessary / Fundamental / A Must
This was one of my non- promo shots for the week. I was busy getting out of the house early for work and then when I got back in the afternoon, it was in the middle of the storm. Then the lights went out.
This is the first good Clematis bloom out front. The gardens there seem to be a few weeks behind and this is the second year for this plant. It will be gorgeous next week.
Patriotic Bird House?
7/3 Photograph All- American
Red, White, & Blue / Baseball / Apple Pie
This is the only patriotic thing here at my house except for a large American flag that we don't have a pole for. And yes, I have taken a picture or two of this before, but now there is color in the back yard. The bee balm will be blooming this weekend and will be a pretty contrast to the yellows, purples and white already in the garden. The Cone flowers are getting ready to bloom also with this one being the first:
I did have my camera with me today and was hoping that our town's bandstand would have some patriotic bunting which it did not, therefore, another picture from the garden. And there you have it, a week of pictures.
