Daily Post Photo Challenge: Danger
Here is a shot of Fort Pulaski in Georgia. This is the side of the fort that sustained the heaviest cannon fire from the Union Troops. This damage was ultimately the reason that the fort surrendered during the Civil War. For me not having experienced war, it is hard to imagine the “danger” that soldiers on both sides experience. But seeing the pockmarks in a brick structure, makes it more real.
Anyone visiting the Savannah area, Fort Pulaski is truly a worthy side trip. I hope you can come and see us.
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Peach or Apricot
Here are a few photos that I think meet the challenge.
Shades of Apricot and Peach the sailing on the wind.
A peachy sunset in the Peach State.
A fishing boat that is afloat on the Savannah River off of Tybee Island, Georgia. Plus a pretty nice sunset…who could ask for more?
Two ibis waltzing on the “weathered wood” of a walkway. I surely hope that they don’t get splinters.
With your feet on the ground, you’re a bird in flight…but sadly I have no pictures of a kite.
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.
Last week a flock of white ibises visited my marshy world. They were very agreeable about posing for pictures, so I was able to get quite close and took many photos. I think this shot shows depth pretty well. The birds in front are in focus with the ones in the back blurred.
Crabs and Oysters, oh my. Here’s my two-fer on Textures.
First photo is a shot of the mud burrows of the fiddler crabs. If you look closely on the right side of the picture you can see the crabs at work.
The second photo is a close up of an oyster bed along the river bank.
Living at the beach, I take many beige photos. Here’s one of a little birdie friend. I’d tell you the type….but I haven’t a clue.
All you need to do is place yourself on the swing…with a perfect day and a light breeze…there you have it, “Serenity”.
