Western Gulf of Mexico sunrise….
Looks like its going to be a windy day…
Some days my camera and I like to go looking for something specific, like a sunrise or sunset, an unusual landscape perspective, or I might have in mind a documentary in photos of a campground or a small town we visit.
Then there are the really fun days when I just take my camera along and let my eye move about, seeking something to take a picture of. I might spot a flower. I might see wild critters. My camera seems to like “yard art”. It’s amazing what kinds of things people come up with to put plants in, or to display for people to see in their front yard.
Now I’m not talking about old Buicks sitting on concrete blocks, or old toilet fixtures that sit near the front porch with weeds growing in them. That’s stretching yard art a bit too much for me. I do, however like old wagons tastefully made into planters. Even an antique pickup with the bed overflowing with petunias, tastefully done, can be outstanding.
I love unusual things, and I am thrilled when I see something like an old well shelter with flower pots hanging from the beams or sitting on the well pedestal. Not being a particularly creative person myself, these things cause me to wonder how someone could come up with the idea. I guess some folks can just see things while others can’t….
Anyway, here are a few things that made me stop and take a photo. Maybe you will love some and hate some. I know how you feel. Often I find myself saying. “I’m sure glad I had my camera for that one” or I might also say “What were you thinking…..??” These represent a little of both….. I am not sure myself where to put some of them……
