Carly nudges us again with a photo challenge asking us to post "our best shot."Being new to photography (and loving it!) I've been experimenting then tossing a whole lot of them ( Oh! the convenience of digital!) This angle shot was found on the Waterfront in downtown Portland on a bleak winter day with my Nikon Sistas! (It reminded me of a similar photo posted by Jama recently.)
It was suggested that I redesign my blog layout to include a white background. I'm a plane-jane when it comes to color, etc. Any input would be welcomed, especially in terms of posting photos. Speaking of which, here's some eye candy for ya!
Taking photos is a great way to start a Monday...or anyday for that matter. Birds have been a popular shot for me of late! Here is my launch at Orthinology, but correct me if I am wrong; these are Red Wing Blackbirds, male and female. I just happened to hear their song after getting out of my car one day. Their music got my attention first, then the male's red shoulder.
I long to spend more time with this creative outlet.
The other day, I went to our local park to photograph the resident hawk I'd seen several times before I owned my new Nikon and telephoto. One day, perhaps I'll have all the tools and talent to shoot the photos I fantasize about, but here are some recent attempts.
