Photo 101: Bliss (Captioned)

Since the first time I visited, I loved the beach.  While I am not one for laying in the sun or surfing the waves, the quiet times around sunrise and sunset are so wonderful.  A beautiful sunset, preferably with those I love by my side, is my idea of bliss.  Since we moved to Tybee, you can find me most evenings racing down the walkway to take a photo of the pretty sunset.  I hope you enjoy this one.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Symmetry (The Doublemint Twins)

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/symmetry/

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

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_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.
