08/05 – messy
I went back-n-forth on various possibilities for this theme. Nothing seemed to sit right with me. I put it off so long that I thought maybe this would be one of the days I skip. And then I walked around the yard last night. I spotted this mess of cobwebs in the opening of the split rail fence… I had my messy.
08/06 – two
This one has a dual meaning for me. Yes, it is two leaves on the path along the Mohawk River but it is too darn early for the leaves to be falling. Come on Mother Nature, it is only the beginning of August!
08/08 – blurry
Blurry could be an easy one… put the camera in manual mode and capture an image out of focus. That would have been my last resort. Luckily I remembered something I had read about using plastic wrap to create a unique view through the lens. I crinkled it up (as best you can plastic wrap) and covered the front of the lens. A quick walk across the road at sunset and walla!
08/09 – horizon
Being the lazy person I was this weekend I didn’t venture far from my yard after dinner. Good thing I have a nice view of some multiple horizons across the Mohawk Valley from my house. A zoom lens and a nice sunset help!
For those of you keeping score at home, yes, I skipped August 7th. I am still working on the relax image. Every time I get comfortable in the chair to take a nice relaxing picture I fall asleep… maybe tomorrow.
