Ice and a pop of colour

Here it is Good Friday, so I have a day off and some time to catch up on my Photo101.  And it’s just after an ice storm so I have been having a lot of fun wandering about taking shots of ice, most not very successfully, but you just need a few, right.  Ice is a very tricky thing once it’s a little distance away.

So here is my colour pop photo.  I was actually wondering to the bottom of my street to take some landscape shots of the Georgian Bay when I saw this yellow wire cover.  Actually, I saw a red hydrant first, but it wasn’t doing it for me and then there was this glimpse of yellow amongst the bushes across the street.

Monochrome Exercise – because a machine is architecture too

Thought I would try to get another exercise done so here is my monochrome piece.  Only one behind now.   Of course the photo was taken at work.  I figure a cappuccino machine is an architectural piece, it’s an Italian machine after all.

I put the colour shot in as well, as it’s pretty much monochrome too with all that stainless steel.

Monochrome isn’t necessarily just black and white.

Looking into the dark

Well, finally got my dark shot up.  Does that make last week finished?  Tried a few things involving flash lights, but they were kind of dead.  Then tonight I tucked in my little guy and gave him a snuggle and found myself looking at the foot of his bottom bunk and there was the shot.  That magic place in the dark beyond the foot of the bed with the promise of the light outside your room.
