Mark thinks that these are “Stairstep Fungi”, but I am not sure what kind.Â We found these yesterday on a log we sat on.Â I really like the colors, but the nut on top really caught my eye.Â I wonder who’s lunch we disrupted.
The Up in the Air category was the toughest for me.Â These pictures need to “portray images of an atmospheric subject.”Â They want to “focus on the atmosphere and bring “In the Air” to life.”
I enjoyed the difficulty of having a theme and needing to find a way to interpret it. Then, finding a way to make it different from “just a sunset” was challenging.Â I probably won’t use “Waiting” but I really like it, so I am not sure.
For the past few years, I have participated in a local photo contest.
This year the categories are Flora and Fauna, In the Air, and Activities in the Park. They also have special sections for black and white and special effects photography.Â I can enter three pictures in each category.
Here are the Flora and Fauna pictures that I have decided on so far.Â Now to narrow it down by two and figure out some good titles for each.
If you want to see the show, the pictures will be displayed at Concord Mall from noon 25 Jan until noon 1 Feb 2013. “Opening Night” is from 5:30-7:30 on the 25 of January. This year, all the “big kids” will have at least one entry each in the “Youth Category”.
“Have you ever noticed a tree standing naked against the sky,
How beautiful it is?
All its branches are outlined, and in its nakedness
There is a poem, there is a song…
By Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895 â€“ 1986)
Audrey came out with me to see if she could get “swallowed up”. She said it felt cold. She liked it though.
Then Adrian come out.Â He wanted to learn what fog was.Â Allan was leaving for work, so he came out to play a few minutes with Adrian.Â They both enjoyed the fog too.
