A glimpse with 5 photos

I’ve been enjoying the way Ashley’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday provides a glimpse into each person's life and personality and the variety of photo subjects for a given hunt topic.

ssh-28-stil-life

Classic still life – well this is what I think constitutes a still life, made up from things that I had to hand.  The round mat is made of bamboo and is from Bangladesh.  The basket is made from flax and came from New Zealand.  Strawberries and blueberries are the fruit that I had in the fridge. The table and wall are my dining room.

ssh-28-selfie

Self-portrait – I used the technique of holding my camera at arms length, with my arms down and looking down onto the camera – makign sure the sun was behind me and I had something interesting behind me – in this case the lovely new leaves on the tress by the river.

ssh-28-floor

On the floor – I had some fun taking photos with the camera on the floor, it really gives a different perspective.  This was also from my walk by the river – I like that you can just see the steeple on the skyline.

ssh-28-lines

Lines – another from my river walk.  This is a small weir to keep the tidal water (on teh left) from going further up the river.  I love this area for photos with the changing textures and colours.

ssh-28-fresh

Fresh – the strong winds on Monday brought down some big trees, the fresh wind continued all week with blustery weather.

I love your fresh shot, it reminds me of that scene in Jurassic Park when they hide behind the fallen tree while the dinosaurs run past :D Love your on the floor shot too :)

Love the on the floor photo. It's amazing what a different perspective does for a photo. I need to remember to get low more often!
