Layers on the Deck

DP Challenge: Layers

DSC_0107

Here is the CMA CGM T. Roosevelt, the largest container ship to travel up the Savannah River to the port of Savannah.  Note the “layers” of containers on its deck.  The ship exited the river a few days later looking completely different.  It rode higher in the water (carrying paper products, from what I heard) and all the containers were the same.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get a second picture.

Ooh, Shiny! – Ooh, Birdie!

DP Photo Challenge: Ooh, Shiny

For my shine, let’s go with birds….although for me, it can be any critter out there.

Don’t ask how many times, hubby and I are traveling in the car (He drives.) and I yell “Ooh, look” and he thinks death is imminent.  Then I get scolded when I say, “what a beautiful bird.”  But he still says, he loves me.

So here are a few bird pictures I have taken in the past couple of days.  I hope you enjoy.

What Bridge? It was a Cat.

DP Photo Challenge: Bridge

When I saw this post, I thought to myself, “I normally don’t take pictures of bridges.”  But I do live on an island.  So I go to my stash of photos and all I can say is “Wow, I’m a liar.”

Anyhow, here we have pictures of a cat and a sunset…oh yeah, I take pictures of bridges.

What can be more transient than sand art.  Every May Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) holds a sand art contest on Tybee Island.  Here are some of the transient entries from this year.  We have:

Pulsating Pelican

DP Photo Challenge: Out-of-Focus

I’ve been trying to get better at taking night pictures.  Basically right now, I’m bad.  But that said, I have gotten some interesting out-of-focus results.  I share two with you below.

This one is a pelican in flight.  It was late dusk and he was flying as part of a pair.  I have cropped and used a filter on the photo and actually like the result, it was not what I intended, but that’s okay, too.

Here’s a shimper at night on the Savannah River.  It is the best of the bad.  I actually did use a tripod, but I need some training, to get the settings on my camera right.
