Old

I really do take photos on a regular basis, I’m just terrible about culling, editing, selecting and sharing. I’ll work on a few for ‘summer’ soon. In the meantime here are my 3 entries to the LOWCC May show and tell. All were shot specifically for the theme ‘old’.

Wasting away whirligig-1-LOWCC 01-sm this Wasting Away Whirlygig. I was taking a walk at a nearby park and kept finding lots of these in different decomposing states. I’m sure the other walkers were wondering why I’d take a few steps and pick them up. The really old decaying ones were so fragile that most didn’t survive intact. I think it looks like a coral reef. shot on a white table w. plexiglass laid on top.

Old SOTC soft filter-1-LOWCC 03-sm This is SOTC, straight out of the camera with the ‘soft’ setting. Funny story behind this old pocket watch. I thought it was my husbands grandfathers. I had it restored for one of our early anniversaries. When I gave it to him, he informed me it wasn’t his grandfathers.

Dying daffodils-1-LOWCC 02-sm These Decaying Daffodils were in my yard. I had another photo I was gooing to use for this but I changed and used this one when I saw them. I did desaturate the green.

Here are the other two I thought about entering. I thought since most photogs in the club photography people there’d be a lot of older people entries. I was surprised at how few. There was one with old hands that was really nice.

If you are a Ragdoll cat lover and haven’t found Jenny’s site you are missing out. Tons of great info, reviews and product testing going on over there. You’ll also see lots of awesome Raggie pics. She doesn’t discriminate either. My two are wannabe’s meaning they may have no Ragdoll in them, but she featured their our story too.
