Day 12: Wilderness

1. an uncultivated, uninhabited, and inhospitable region.
My Sock Drawer

1/40 sec, F2.8, ISO 200

Notes: One might think that a theme like "wilderness" would be right down my alley. FOr this project I am committed to posting only images I have captured on the day of the theme. That is part of the challenge --  to look for images I Otherwise might not search for. Sigh. Today i did not have time to shoot any wilderness shots, apart from a flock of seagulls that turned out wholly uninspiring. So looking up the definition of "wilderness" the first thing that came to mind was my sock drawer. Enjoy.

Notes: Damn, got stuck in traffic this morning and by the time I got to work most of the super heavy frost had melted off. Missed the best light too. Oh well, its the idea that counts. Here are a couple of other images from this morning:

Day 9: Footprints

Water prints.

Notes: What can be said? The rain washed away the snow and all the prints on the sand. Again little time to explore with the camera.

Day 8: Draw Something

Raindrops drawing on snow.

1/60 sec, F8, ISO 1600


Notes: I don't draw so I was looking for nature to draw something for me. I was hoping it would be windy so I could suspend a pencil or wooden spoon so that it jsut touched the snow and the wind would do the work. Sigh, no wind, just patterns of rain on snow.
