Since I was ill I didn't get to enter the next challenge but from what I have seen there are some wonderful shots out there so everyone make sure and do the rounds and see the talent.
However I was feeling better today and we had a heat wave so I did get out and do some shooting. As usual I took more picture then necessary but some I really like. I did some in black and white and messed around with some I didn't like in by looking at them a different way. The first couple are my favorites.
I liked the starkness of this. The lone tracks passing by the empty swing. Bleak
Another from the playground. They just look so sad not used.
A little color makes it look more inviting and you can see the footsteps have gone right up to the swings.
Now this tree I saw from up on the hill and I just loved the way the shadow looked. I have it done 3 different ways. I like all 3. It was in my favorite cemetery. First in color
Next black and white.
And last framed. Anyone know of a good program on line to put frames on?
Still in the cemetery this is one I messed with the color but I really like the effect.
The next 2 are kind of 2 different views. Are you near sided or far sided?
And then last one I would have maybe entered in the community photo contest if I hadn't been so sick and able to get out. I took this shot because this reminds me of my hometown from when I was young in the winter. Not many new houses around and gentle rolling corn fields put to bed for the winter. I decided old fashion album edges looked best with this. And of course black and white to date it from my younger days.
