Tough challenge this week. For me, at least.
I didn’t want to post a painting from the Metropolitan Museum from my archives or someone else’s idea.
There have been a lot of creative and unusual masterpieces posted by fellow bloggers . And although there’s plenty of grandchildren artwork where I’m vacationing, how could I chose a single piece from one of the four?
In Ohio, there are no majestic tall ships with light on their sails like Frizz in Germany or Colline’s intricate handmade ship models, or Francine’s stunning views of the Grand Canyon or Meg’s post of Capri. Or Madhu’s edible masterpiece.
There are so many others to see and even a brand new grandchild for Gilly
So keeping it simple. Very simple
One more photo from the Ohio State Fair to meet theWeekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece.
Look, an egg!
Practice stop-motion shots. Anticipate the action.
Try to feel the timing.
Press the shutter at the right time, once, instead of fifty times. Hopeful.
Sometimes the stop-motion looks frozen to me, perhaps too still. Wonder if it needs a little blur to show the movement.
As you read about my shooting where you are, these are examples of how you can be on vacation and work on your skills, simultaneously.
Have fun doing it, too!
Chef at the next table- House of Japan
Jack trying to beat the ball to first base.
And jumping off the board into the pool. Looks like a cut-and-paste figure.
I walked on by-
nearly passed it up-
even thought it caught my eye.
It’s a rush and a hike between schools.
Time’s always short.
But after I stepped past, I turned around
got down on one knee and shot this little gift
to me- hard boiled yolk, a bit dried,
rolled in sandy crumbs,
abandoned on a sidewalk, fell from a lunch bag
or on the way to the nearby dumpster, missed.
Easter is over.
Didn’t make it to the egg salad bowl.
I drove by after school, to see if it was smashed
maybe rolled an inch, more dry, but still there
all those hours later, just not in as good a light!
SIMPLE- “Having or composed of only one thing, element, or part.”
” ‘Tis a gift to be simple.”
There’s even the magazine REAL SIMPLE.
A medicinal herb is a simple?
“Don’t act simple.”
I can think of just two words that rhymes with simple …one cute, the other not-
Shot this single egg just a half hour ago in Mark and Erika’s kitchen. Everyone has gone to bed. The snow didn’t start ’til the last hour of the drive out here. Erika’s Aunt Georgeann picked me up at school and we came out together which made the 200 miles go by much more quickly.
Appliance repairman scheduled for 7 AM and I’m making the pancakes for breakfast before the swim meet. Sounds like a full day. More complex than simple but it will be simply wonderful!
