A Birthday Wishes

ISO-400  -  f/6.3  -  1/250sec  -  55mm
I was surfing the Facebook.com network and found out that one of my sister-in-laws' birthday was happing today.  I really did not want to just leave a Happy Birthday message, like unto all others.

So, started looking through my images and found the image below.  In the image we see a lion roaring in frustration to all the zoo goers.  I really did not want the fence in the back or the blue ball in the image.  To remove these items from the image, I zoomed in on the lion.  I made sure that his tail stayed in the image and that his eyes were in the right, upper 1/3 of the image.  Putting his eyes in the upper 1/3 of the image we get the feel that he is looking down at us.

I also pondered about the day that the image was taken.  It was a cloudy day, so I had bumped up the ISO to 400.  This would allow me to keep my shutter speed around 1/250sec when taking pictures of the animals at the zoo.

To finish of this image I added the needed words and a small pun "Have a roaring good time."

Look Out

( #look #out #otter #wood #BradyLB #water #fun )

ISO-800  -  f/9  -  1/250 sec  -  155mm

Sit, sit , sit.

Sometimes you have to sit and wait.  Then you see the shot you want and you miss it.  How frustrating this can be for a photographer.  And I can tell you that getting this shot was frustrating.

When I had my camera ready for the shot the otters stayed away and I saw no action, but when I pulled my camera down is when they would come out.  So to get this shot I had to pull out my camera in the middle of their play and hope that I get a good shot before they run off again from seeing a camera.

I hope you like this image.

Glasses, Glasses everywhere

There are many things in this world that we can take a look at. In this post, I will be looking at a few perspectives of eye glasses. In the photo above I took a picture of a pair of glasses on top of a dictionary. Within this image, you can see that glasses are sitting above the definition of glasses. I thought this would be a nice little addition to the image.

After looking at the image, I thought that it was not enough for this image, so I pondered what I could do to improve the image. I finally came up with adding a reflection of the image within the glass lenses. This editing gave the image the final zing that I was looking for.

In the image above, I wanted only part of the glasses to be in focus. The story line that I was looking for in this image was, after studying about glasses in the dictionary thing became out of focus for me.

In the image above, I took my daughters teddy bear and placed the glasses on her. I looked at several different angles on how to capture this image. I decided on a close-up image, with the camera below the teddy bear was the best angle to take the shot. Taking a look at everyday objects in a different light can create the story that we are looking for in our lives.

Eye Story

( #eye #eyes #story #macro #shadow )
I have been playing with my macro lately.  The first image focuses on the eye ball.  You can see the tears forming in the left of the eye.  The second image focuses on the eye lashes and the tangled web that they weave.

Life Amoung the Cold

Can you see it?  Can you see the life among the cold?  The garb of the traveler.

Frozen Waterfall

( #frozen #water #fall #waterfall #ice #still #life )

Listen to the song of the world around you.



When waterfalls are not frozen it is easy to hear their songs roaring through the air, but we often dismiss these songs.  Now that these waterfalls are frozen, we can see their song instead of hearing it.  The trick is to stop and take a moment to see their magnificent song.

Ice Prison

( #ice #snow #prison #perspective )
In life we need to look at many different perspectives.  In the first image we look at the ice bars.
If we are able to look past the bars of life we often can see the beauty that waits for us on the other side.
