Black! Nothing like a Manatee County moo cow to make your day. Good ol’ Number 16 was very friendly, and poked her head through the barbed wire fence to see if I had treats for her. I didn’t, but she made my day when she filled the bill for “I Say White You Say . . . Black”! A little Nik vignetting finished her off.
I loved this little blue dinghy tied up at Granville Island in Vancouver, B.C.’s False Creek. Its well-worn paint, oars and gunnels surely tell tales at sea, or at least I like to think so. Let’s just say this ringy “dinghy” rang my bells and I am happy to include it in our fun, crazy 52-Week Challenge.
Week 38: In A Row
St. George Street in historic St. Augustine has palm trees all in a row, as I discovered during a stroll from our hotel to the Columbia Restaurant on Hypolita Street. When I got to the intersection, I turned around and shot the scene from whence I came. We passed by Kilwin’s fudge shop along the way, so I skipped dessert at the Columbia to indulge myself enroute back to the Casa Monica Hotel. St. Augustine is a nice getaway, and under four hours from our house.
The Great Egret is the ultimate authority on the S Curve, the creative angle so appealing to the eye. This guy’s graceful S pops out from the angular fronds of its roost. Shooting the egret is a challenge, as the sun can glare off the white plumage. I was grateful for a partly cloudy day when I shot this bird in St. Augustine.
