P52 Sweet Shot Tuesday #30

Some weeks, it's difficult to choose the photo I want to include in Kent Weakley's P52 Sweet Shot Tuesday; the one I choose each week is going to be published in my P52 photo book at the end of the year.  My husband recommended this image when I asked his opinion.  I took the photo on a Sunday evening drive across a nearby area called "Cricket Flat."  This time of year, it can be difficult to find a photo subject in that dry area.  I'm always attracted to gates of every kind, and this is one I chose.

Sunflower Stages

There are other phases in a sunflower's life, but I've captured a few.  When they truly go to seed, they are also fascinating...but that will be later.

P52 Sweet Shot Tuesday #29

Joining Kent Weakley's P52 Sweet Shot Tuesday for the 29th week.  Two "vintage" items are at the center of this still life:  the weathered skull of a cow and a very old bucket that once held lard.  The sunflowers are new, but artificially colored.

Colorful Cars

A local car show is a great place to wander on a Saturday morning.  I choose to focus on details, rather than the entire car, primarily because there are usually people near the cars.

Be Still_52 #26 Butter and Eggs

I don't believe I've considered butter and eggs as subjects for still life photography, but that was the assignment in Be Still_52 this week.  I loved the blue and white, but decided to tone things down with edits in Topaz's Black & White Effects.
