Blinds Patterns and Symmetry
blind pattern I was looking around the house for the theme till i notice the sunlight coming out of the blind
Since stories have been running a bit slow I thought I'd do a competition entry. ^^
This shot were taken while testing out my new lens in a family friend's back garden. A red cactus. I think it probably fits the bill. XD Photoshopped a bit (strong warming filter added).
Any comments/critique are welcome as always!
This pattern was on MY List
i keep a mental list of things i would like to photograph if i ever had the chance.
yesterday, i got to mark this off my list.
you may have seen from previous posts that the farm was frog poor. in fact, when i moved here 12 years ago there were, literally, none to be found. i figured it was due to the usage of pesticides and lack of habitat.
being from the coast, frogs singing after a rain was something i missed.
i set about creating an attractive home for them and my grandson, mojo, helped me care for some tadpoles. as he explained it in his then seven year old way. "there's not enough mud to water ratio, so, we need to move these tadpoles from the ditch to the pond."
he did and now we have frogs.
that being said. i have photographed 2 different kinds of frogs here on the farm. the big warty "prince-type" toad and the bright green and yellow tree frog with the big suction cup feet.
i have seen this other particular type frog many times in the pond, but, never have they consented to pose for me. they are waaay tooo fast. even if i had my camera with me i couldn't shoot fast enough. poof! they were gone...
well, i was weeding the garden to make room for the tomatoes this year, when i came across this frog snoozing in the cool mud and morning air. i almost didn't take this picture. i thought no way will it be here by the time i get back.
...but, i went back to the house and retrieved my camera.
lo and behold...when i got back she was still there. she was in this kind of trance-like state. i managed to get up close and personal with her and got quite a few super-macro shots before she roused, looked right at me and then hopped off.
i hope she found another place to nap, because, after the photo session, i finished weeding and planted my tomatoes in her sleeping place.
i love it when a plan finally comes together.

My first entry. This image is from a family outing to Balboa Park in San Diego. Taken inside the Botanical Buliding, which is in itself is covered in a smmetrical pattern of wooden lattice panels.
