Sunday Snippets

On Monday!  LOL.  I wanted to post this yesterday, but time just got away from me!

Most days, I take a lot of pictures and pick from those for my daily Project 365 photo. Sometimes I have really good days and will have a lot of good ones, so it is a struggle to pick just one. During my last Project 365, I had a feature on my blog I called Monday Modge Podge. This is where I featured my photos that are not my Project 365. I thought this time I would use a different term and call it the “Sunday Snippets”. Sundays are a less busy day for me than Mondays, so Sundays work out better for me to pull this feature together.

Enjoy :)

Tracks on the river bank. Any ideas as to what they are?

Looking for a Snowy, ran out of time and snapped this. I have a fall photo of the same farm.

“Nice Bench”……

That is a comment (sarcastically, I might add, LOL) my nephew made on one of my photos I took of a bench.  He was with me when I took it and had asked “What are you taking a picture of?” and I said, “that bench.”  The reply was followed by a funny look and rolled eyes.   I get that a lot, LOL.

I have no clue where or when my fascination with benches came in.  I’ve seen them in other photographs and thought they looked cool.  Color, Black & White, Sepia.  It doesn’t matter.   It just seems like when I see one I have to take a picture of it.   I almost always incorporate a bench into my portrait photography, if there is one to be found.

Benches, fences, gates, trees, stumps, etc.  You will see a lot of them in my photography.  I love trying to get the perfect composition of inanimate objects in a photo.   However, it does not always work out that beautifully :)  I have another photographer friend who just doesn’t see my inanimate object fascination, LOL.

Maybe it is that they look so lonely and it looks like they need company.   I have always been the one to try and fix something or someone.  And it has backfired on me a couple times.  They speak to me somehow.  I can’t explain it.  Maybe they want me to sit and talk to them for a while, peacefully watching the day go by.

I may have to try it some time…….. :)
