Cee’s B & W Challenge: In or On Water
Tybee Tabby has moved…so there probably will be fewer seaside pictures. Considering how bad I have been about posting lately, you are probably surprised to see any pictures. I’ll try to improve.
We do have a lake nearby and that is where the second picture was taken. The first is from my back yard. I have a pretty little sun porch and can see the birds and squirrels from my couch.
As always, I hope you enjoy.

Photo Challenge: Treat
Here is a wood stork with his treat, a little crab for lunch.
My treat was to be able to watch and photo that stork and all his buddies as they meandered through the muddy swamp.
Cee’s Photo Challenge: Leading Lines
Here are my photos for Cee’s Leading Lines Challenge. I hope you enjoy…
( Almost) straight line of the railing supporting my two friends, the wood storks.
The horizon makes a nice line on this photo, but perhaps more prominent are the supports for the nets radiating off the boat.
Lots of lines in this one. The edge of the bookshelf gets the lead in my mind. P.S. Say hi to Swampy, our new kitten, who has at least tripled in size since this photo was taken.
From horizontal to vertical…this post provides a strong linear element.
…And finally for bonus points
The curve of the shore moving into the oyster bed draws the eye in this evening shot.
Cee’s Photo Challenge: Simplicity
Here is my first shot (a very lucky one). Single egret against a blue grey sky…I was even able to manage the rule of three (sort of).
Of course I had to play with the shot. Some cropping, changed to black and white and using the vignette feature on the editing tool.
I took this shot this afternoon. I was able to get fairly close to the egret.
Here is the same shot, cropped and converted to black and white.
Same shot with the edges darkened using the vignette tool again. I thought it brought the focus in on the bird.
Here’s my final series….again taken this afternoon. Pretty butterfly.
Here is a simple crop to focus in on the butterfly.
And the final version with the background softened to make it more “dreamlike”.
Let me know what you think. Positive or Negative. I welcome your comments, since they help me to improve.
DP Photo Challenge Extraordinary
It was an extraordinary day. A flock of wood storks stopped by for a visit. I don’t see them often, but on occasion, they stop for a crab luncheon as they migrate through the area. Here are a couple of photos. I hope you enjoy.
Cee’s B & W Photo Challenge: Reflection and Shadow
Here’s is a two for one for Cee’s B & W Challenge. This shot of a royal tern has both a prominent reflection and a shadow. He also looks like he is saying “dang, it’s cold out here”.
I hope you like the picture.
I thought I would share my photo of the morning. I haven’t seen wood storks too often in my neck of the swamp. This fine character was hunting for crabs for breakfast.

Photo Challenge: Creepy
Here are a few “creepy” shots for you to enjoy?
I was going for a cute macro….what I got was creepy.
An action shot of a seagull…just slightly creepy.
First time I saw a bug like this…may it be the last.
I figured a happy shot of flying pelicans….maybe not.
Bug eats bug…can we get any creepier.
And finally, here is a

I look to the heavens for my inspiration.
