Last year I took a picture every month of my flower bed. I have been shooting this view from my front porch in every season. I will create a collage in December of these images. I hope it shows what I am going for. Wish me luck!
Today's daily shoot assignement was to take a photo that represents what health care in the U.S. means to me.....The picture is of a bull....health care programs in the the U.S. to me are a lot of bull. Supported by the middle class and not worth the material that would come out of the animal. Not sure what to do to fix it but I fear the new program will not even begin to make things better.
Shoot something in its natural light today. My son and I stopped this afternoon and shot this picture of a couple of horses near our home. The light was nice and the horses friendly. I wish I had had an apple for them.....
A photo dominated by green.....hmmm.....Anthony created this poster of himself to welcome his students to his classroom. And he Andy Warhol-ized it by coloring it green. I love this man; he is a joy to be around; he loves his subject and his students. It has been a pleasure to mentor him and help him to learn the ropes this year. I hope he sticks around in the junior high for a bit longer.
Shoot something that represents a sound! The horns on top of the cab of this 18 wheeler grabbed my attention today. 18 wheelers have a distinctive sounding horn. Remember when you used to pump your arm at the truckers to get them to blow their horns.....
Backlighting an object can create drama! Not sure how dramatic the picture is but I love the way the bright white contrasts with the orange in the center of the daffodil.
I received my Bachelor's degree some 20 years ago from this university. Many renovations have been done during that time and this is possibly my favorite. They have made the area in front of the lab sciences building a "mall" like area lots of open grass lined with flowering trees. I am not certain what the building is in the background that is currently under construction but you can bet that I will be there for the dedication of it. I love my alma mater! Go Red Wolves!
