Years Later Everything Still Looks Fresh

Frozen in the moment. Still fresh,  Magic.

I went back to an external hard drive and dug through archives

Looking for images that say fresh.  I sure like to photograph my food. Scroll down for the fresh statue.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Orange Guest Blog Direct from Florida

There’s been a lot of snow, ice and gray photos on the blog lately until today.

My dear friend has escaped the frigid north to sunny Florida for a vacation and

today she sent me some bright orange photos of an Orange Juice Processing Tour she’d been on just yesterday. WOW.

The weekly photo challenge is ORANGE. Perfect timing.

I invited her to be guest blogger for orange and then she sent me the Bird of Paradise flower.

She’s anonymous for now as no one needs to know she’s away and full photo credit can be posted upon her return home.

Thanks for the orange photos.

She writes-

“The oranges are handpicked”  “The oranges are very thin skinned because they are so juicy.” “Very Heavy”

“The marks on the oranges are from the ocean breeze making limbs brush across the fruit as it grows”

“Cutting a Honey Belle Orange”  She says it is the “best tasting”   A small family farm Al’s Family Farms®

Thirds or Threes, Skip the Bokeh

The Weekly Photo Challenge is supposedly the Rule of Thirds but the presentation of the challenge  is so completely different from what I have been taught and teach- I thought of adding the grid on some of these images to size them up. But decided to just go with what I see as broken up into thirds, or in some cases threes.

Confined myself to a NYC archive to simplify the selections.  My gallery doesn’t fit the parameters of the suggested minimalist, off center subject and a blurry background.

Almost Symmetry 


Late in the Day View from the School Parking Lot

The light shone on a row of houses in the neighborhood. I was going to my car at the end of a long Saturday afternoon in the gym, watching some of my students perform in the dance, color guard and majorette competition.

I thought about scale again. Size relationships.  How the one house close looked big, the sunlit row much smaller.

But that would be for perspective week, right?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

Scale 

 Do you “think about size relationships when you look” at the photos?  

Going to see what else I can come up with this week, specifically for the challenge.

Depth. Going deep. Depth of field. Meaurement. Feeling. Distance. Diving- where depth matters.
