Lines, patterns and shadows within and
surrounding architecture has always appealed
to my eye. Lining the shot up and balancing
the content has become easy as that’s how I
was taught many years ago. Cropping, editing
was always minimal and photoshopping....
I ignore, although it is a useful tool for many.

Taking pictures with an Iphone to post atWF
must be heavily cropped to be accepted by
the system hence, disrupting my natural
eye and I must over shoot to commpansate.
New challenges... I’m working on it....here
are a couple cropped without losing too much
detail.

On the train coming into Chicago from Michigan.
In the distance, part of the skyline from the south.

Posting these now is a challenge.
The last picture is one of three sets of drawers
that were originally my mothers. They’re just cool.

The third photo is at the train yard

Am outside on a hot rather breezless day repotting
Coneflowers and Marigolds which smell sweet and
delicious. Thought I’d share my beautiful clutter.

No clue what these are, but they remind me
of a bit of Sequoia Cactus

Think they look like Verbascum (mullein) plants, are the flowers yellow?

TuesdayEve

Yes, I’m pretty sure I saw a hint of yellow near the top.
We’re supposed to get rain over the next few days by
Monday, I’d bet, they’ll be in bloom. I’ll try to get over
there again for pics.

We have alot of Ginko Biloba trees around here. This is
a beautiful female stretching her arms gracefully.
Her leaves are unique and the seeds are similar
to lychee and rambutan with light colored flesh(non
edible) surrounding a seed which is digestable. These
are unripened.

Yea, and the lines and shadows of the mountain,
nice BAR.

I’m also fascinated with trees.

We walk in the local woods frequently and love the seasonal changes, bracket fungus and strange shapes nature comes up with in the trees. The names of the fungi always amuse me too, one of the bracket type is ‘Chicken of the woods’. I take loads of photos and fear l could bore for England on the subject. :sneakiness:

Those are beautiful. It amazes me how some terrestrial
animal life are so similar to aquatic or arial, I call
phenomenon, such as, the fluid water dance schools of
sardines or mackeral compared to the dance in flight of
a flock of starlings....and now your coral fungus could be an
Caribean underwater coral.
What a feminine silhouette pose against the foggy
background. Just lovely.
And I love the lines in the rotting bark, wavey...

Wow BAR, that’s beautiful, love the lines and patterns and
a pop of color.

I really like the first one, that ghostly slatted head is creepy.
Limited colour palette works well too.

It looks like a marshmellow or wax sculptor attached
to the tree...it’s so white.

I like to think of this as a beaded vase holder.
Not my creation but beautiful and unique.

I think I've found the squirrel. Highlight the white text below the dots if you want to read my solution.

There is a brown mark, possibly a shadow, in the shape of a squirrel on the ground between the two pots on the left. It is rotated ninety degrees though.

What an eye Rob....

She’s one of the three girls who lives nearby
and my neighbor and I feed.
She’s very comfortable relaxing on the cement.

The Catalpa Tree and the Ginko, both so unique.
The Catalpa has heart shaped leaves. The string
bean looking things are seed pods. They will
dry out and stay attached during winter and open
in spring releasing the seeds.

These photos touched me, not in an overly emotional way but rather I tend to focus on exactly this when I'm looking around. I'm not taking in the majestic beauty of a landscape; that line where the mountains meet the sky? I'm looking at that. The seemingly abstract structure of a power substation? I'm staring at the way the wires dip and connect, I'd never really considered that others took pictures of these things. It's such a singular focus but it helps keep me grounded.

what a great composition!
love the absorption
of foreground into background,
implied center,
contrast of (tree/branch?)
flipping light upon dark
and
dark upon light,
AND
textural form on the bottom.
THAT is a cover waiting to happen
amongst other high potential placements.

Gosh! There was me thinking it was a quick snap of a dewy spiders web that looked better in black & white.

as humans,
let us not underestimate
actions prompted
by
deep wisdoms within,
of which we may not be actively aware.

it is, indeed, a quick snap of a dewy spider's web
that looks awesome in black in white.
please forgive my tendency to misspeak,
which might be a poet's shortcoming
and/or
problematic visual thinker predisposition.

Good morning, happy to be here. Recently, I learned
to knit. The first photo is my second scarf, about 6.5 ft
with just a couple of mistakes. I like to think they’re
my signature. The second was dramatic, and struck me
as such as was the third shot.
