Monumental Automotive Milestone
However, today was the day.
For my truck, this day has been 17 years in the making.
For me, I've been driving toward this day for 14 years.
I'm entering this into the weekly challenge because all those digits represent 200,000 miles.
All was not lost though. Jackson is also home to the Cascades, the largest manmade waterfall in the United States. As you can see, after dark they're very colorful. I usually prefer color, but I actually thought this shot looked pretty good in sepia too. There are steps running along the sides of the falls, so you can get a closer view of the water & lights. Other than the 21 'skeeter bites I incurred during the making of these photos, it turned out to be a good night.
Outside the falls I also captured this image for the new bi-weekly challenge - Double Manor House.
Anniversary Sunset and Dinner at Watch Hill
This is Calvin.Early Cruiser And this is my last texture post. Can you guess what it is ???????? Thanks my friends. I am looking foward to the next challenge.
A Little Texture
Everything has texture, all different, there is a helicopter at the museum that saw time in Vietnam, thought I would show a small portion of it with Bullet holes not covered up. It amazes me the number of rivets that are in a plane/chopper.
What you are about to see now is somthing a lot of women wish we had.. ~~~ , this belongs to my daughter.
Have a good evening!!
"My warehouse eyes, my Arabian drums, Should I leave them by your gate?"
Textures From Hawaii
subject in the best possible way, so that the end result allows the viewer to FEEL the textural details with their eyes.
So here's a collection of some of my better views in this catagory - Please share your thoughts and questions.
Last winter I stumbled upon the skeleton of an old tobacco barn that let enough light inside to get some great shots of natural materials WOOD and LEAVES along with ferns, twigs, moss and air pockets that combined with the layers, ridges and cracks in the FROZEN_WATER to altogether create an amazing COLLAGE of colors and textures.
You just cant top a PEACOCK_FEATHER for the vibrance of its display, yet even similiar colored objects will show CONTRAST with the help of Texture. Even something as dull as CEMENT can be made interesting; and GRAVESTONES can be endlessly fascinating(Especially in Connecticut). It never ceases to amaze me how some things will GROW or COLLECT where you would least expect them. LICHEN is plentiful on old stone walls and SHROOMS will "popup" anywhere they can - this one had more texture on the top than underneath.
We have an large variety of trees in CT, even some "GNARLY_OLDE_BUGGERS"
which can still be put to use the olde fashioned way with PEGS or newer ways to side a BARN, whose PAINT will eventually age and disappear leaving only the KNOT and some abandonded TRAILS.
Finally, the water recedes and leaves its temporary mark in the SAND as well as a RUSTY memory in time. I hope you enjoyed this tour of TEXTURES .... and I'll bet your gettin hungry eh? Time for a real textural treat of edible art - Relax & Enjoy some ICE_CREAM on me - - Haagen Daz of course*
A few more of mine
Anyway, here are a few more from my library that I would love to get some feedback on! Some of them could be considered an entry to the textures contest...I'll let you decide which ones. Man, I love this site!
Pine trees can be pretty after all!
More from last year's first snow
Texture or lack thereof?
I heart Japanese Maples
South Valley Trail, Virginia (just want some feed back)
I'm starting college this fall. I will be majoring in Photography, so I just wanted some feedback.
My first shot at a post here -- Also an entry for "textures"
I have a pic that I just took the other evening that I thought might be appropriate for this week's challenge. It's a little out of focus...but I'm considering this sort of a "testing-the-waters" post.
