Ann-Christine thought we would find more examples of curves: funny, beautiful, unusual – roads, paths, art, architecture, animals, plants – anything that interests you. Because, curves are everywhere around us. And she is correct.
Nature presents many opportunities to see curves. One of my favorite curves is the “S” curve.
Enjoying the coastline curves at Laguna Beach, the rocky coast of Northern California or on the Island of Kauai
Keep looking for curves. It makes for amazing photography. Curves make the world go round.
My next Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is Soft. Anne-Christine asks what does the word Soft mean to you? Is it something that you touch? Is it the undefined notion that is the opposite of hard? Is it the contrast to sharp from a photographer’s point of view? This is not so simple a concept.
My first thought was that of a baby. We want everything about this new being to be soft. Soft blankets, soft toys, soft skin, soft colors, and soft sounds Nothing hard, or harsh. We want the world around us to be soft and welcoming.
Only a week later, my Charlie joined the world. We follow his first developing steps on a webcam.
Nature softens the world around me.
My most favorite photographic technique is shooting with a large aperture setting. This narrow depth of field clarifies the subject. This blurred background is called the bokeh. I pay particular attention to this when deciding to purchase a lens for my Fuji x system.
My featured photograph is that of clouds. Soft, fluffy and white. What do you see? When you hear the work “Soft” what comes to mind?
