Photo 101 – Day Ten: Mystery & Lighting Effects

Today, share an image that creates a sense of mystery. Intrigue us with uncertainty.

Today’s Tip: To stretch yourself, manipulate the light available to you to create a particular effect — use it to cast shadows and highlights to create a moody image. Work with natural light, or find an artificial light source

Day10 - mystery

When you’re lost and forever feeling too deeply
Open your eyes to a world of beautiful wonder,
The greatest treasures are found
On a journey in which those feelings are followed.

Follow your own path

 

Blogging 101 – Day Four: Identify Your Audience

We often create posts hoping that someone in particular will see (and appreciate) our work. Today, publish a post you’d like that person (or people) to read — and stretch your blogging chops as you do.

Today’s Assignment: publish a post you’d like your ideal audience member to read, and include a new-to-you element in it.

My first impulse was to write that I don’t create posts hoping that someone in particular will see them! I even told my bestie that I was going to write how my blog is for myself, how I post for myself, not anyone else. Oh boy, I was going on a tangent.
Yes, I stepped on my soapbox and ranted away. My poor friend. 🙂
Then as I started to write, I realized that I do have someone in particular that I want to see my posts.

I will let my picture and words speak for themselves…

Photo 101 – Day Three: Water

We have different relationships to and stories about water: how it has saved or defeated us. How it reminds us of family vacations, outdoor adventures, or the hot summers of our childhood. How it might symbolize a place we’ve left behind, or a location we dream to go.

day3--water
Oh, ocean
Take me away
Enfold me in your waves
Steal me away from the shore

Freeze me
Numb my pain
Let me drown
In your vastness

Let me sink
To the bottom of the ocean
Let me experience
All that you have to offer
