DP Photo Challenge: Transient

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:

Moonlight on the Beach

Daily Post Photo Challenge: Ambience

dsc_0259-4

4:30 in the morning, as I rose to answer nature’s call, I looked out the window and this is what I saw.  I ran down stairs to get my camera and stood on the porch in my nightie and bare feet.  While I took several pictures, this is the only one that turned out because I didn’t have a tripod set up.  I do think it demonstrates the special ambience of that moon-lite night.

The Power of Water

Photo Challenge: H2O

Calm peaceful water…a source of joy, a thing of beauty.  Tybee Island on a warm clear day.  The egret searching for his dinner.

This past week, not so much.  Hurricane Matthew changed our landscape and reminded us of the power of water.  Lots of damage, but no loss of life in our little community.  We’ll clean up and move forward and always remember the power of water.

Electric Green

Developing Your Eye 1, Day Nine – A Pop of Color

Let’s go wild today.  I don’t know why but these lizards truly fascinate me.  From my on-line research, they are a kind of chameleon called a Carolina Anole.  I just think they are fun.  Plus this one is bright green and  fulfills the assignment.

Big

Day 7 of Developing Your Eye 1 – Big

The powers that be are dredging the Savannah River so that even more gigantic boats can sail into the port and deliver more fine goods from around the world.

Here is a photo of a work ship moving up the river.  Just so you get a perspective of the size, take a look at the seagulls and kayak in the foreground and if you look on the right hand side of the boat you can just make out a guy sitting on the deck.  The only problem that I have with photographs like this is they really can’t give you the true feeling of how big and awe inspiring these ships are.
