Photo Challenge – Rule of Thirds – Friday Fresh Fish

DSC_0222 (4)This heron was enjoying a fresh fish lunch.  The original photo followed the rule of thirds, most likely because I was approaching with stealth to try to get the shot.  I did do some cropping and brightening.  Hope you enjoy.

Cee’s Photo Challenge – Odd Ball Challenge Week 7

We went to the Mardi Gras Parade yesterday on Tybee.  The  island parades are always fun and an opportunity to act a little silly.  Plus the marchers hand out swag.  Who could ask for more?  A pink octopus wearing a purple mask and sporting a lei….it just seemed to fit the “odd ball” challenge.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Symmetry (The Doublemint Twins)

As I am taking photos of the beach and marsh critters, I sometimes talk to the animals and occasionally I give them names.  (Yes, I am weird, but generally nobody else is around so there are no complaints.)  These two I named the Doublemint Twins.  I think that their pose demonstrates symmetry quite well.

Photo Challenge: Scale

The huge cargo ships that travel the Savannah River impressed me when I first saw them and continue to impress me today.  These ships are gigantic.  Each of the rectangles on the deck of the ship is a trailer from a semi-truck, giving you some sense of the size of the ship.  Seeing them up close and personal gives the best perspective.  The second shot of the tug in front of the cargo ship may provide an even better sense of scale.  You can see the tug pilot in the cabin.
