Dogwood Photography Challenge Week 1
This is the official Photo..
I had worked this scene out on paper, explained it to hubby and off to the forest we went, I had hoped for a more open wider road but what we got was a trail with two walkable tire spacings and the tree’s closed in on the road in a very different way.. I had my balance but it was not the openness I had thought to bring to it.. the tree’s closed in the top in a way that I was not expecting, I thought I would have more sky..
then was the fact that my what was to be a “pop” of hunter orange did not show up from the back, so suddenly I was the odd thing out in the colored photo.. this big black person in a sea of white/green and with red hair and red dog.. Thankfully I could see in my eye how I could take the bones I had gotten and with a little back-end magic in the coloring and sharing and with a tiny bit of cropping..
I got the photo.. a bit darker, a bit more intense than I had thought it would be..
My runner-up is very different from the well thought out and planned photo above.. it was more.. wow a grandfather tree.. lets throw a few shots at it and see what we get.. I can see that if I had backup up and planned it out more it could have been much better.. Still I will share it with you none the less 🙂
” Self portrait” Find a way to express who you are without showing your face.
I had a few photos in “stock” that meet this challenge..
I love this photo so much because it was the first time that baby girl Dezbot was old enough, trained enough to go free without a leash in the bush with us.. I exciting day for all of us.. FREEDOM! and so what does she do.. spend most of it in heal position LOL
This photo certainly tells the story.. I went to mount up.. Brandy moved on, I didn’t get over in time and off I came, right into the wet, cold slushy mud.. Knocked the wind right out of me..
