Vantage Point

Assignment: Pick a vantage point (with a one-step radius), stay there for at least an hour, and photograph. Find or make interesting views out of ordinary or usually-ignored items.

I took close to 100 photographs and decided 6 were good enough to keep (with one being the photograph of my tripod to show my vantage point).

Impressionistic Flowers

And yet another way to blur photos on purpose. The irony is I had to delete several photos from this set where I tried to take a standard photograph but they were out of focus: not clear enough, not blurry enough. Huh.

These ox eye flowers sort of look as if they were suspended in mid air.

Sunflowers, almost look three dimensional. Well, actually, they are, but photos aren’t.

Sunflowers, going somewhere in a hurry.
