It is cold and wet in North Carolina this morning and I found myself wishing I was back in the Caribbean. With that in mind, I went back to my photo stash and found this beautiful picture of the ocean spray topping a wall.
Now I feel just a little bit warmer.
Bermuda – June 2003
I went way back in my archives to see what tree pictures might be hiding there, just waiting to be discovered.

The challenge poses a different challenge. The email indicates that the challenge for the day is “Flow”, but the post indicates “Bank”. I found a great photo for flow, but I think it can also work for bank. Let me know what you think.

If you look at the street sign, you will see that motor cars and motor bikes are not allowed on this particular street. The incline is quite steep and the surface is cobblestone. It appears to be an accident waiting to happen.

Nancy Merrill Photography always brings out the best with her weekly challenges. This week, with ‘Vanishing Point’, she highlights one of the principal guidelines in taking great photographs – Perspective. Nothing aids perspective more than a proper vanishing point to guide the eye through the subject matter of a photograph or painting.
I have chosen two photos from our trip to Helsinki to demonstrate both the curved and the straight line vanishing point techniques.
Note in the second photo that everything is moving away from the observer toward the vanishing point, emphasizing it even more.
Neither photo is of prize winning quality, but both are useful in demonstrating the technique of the ‘Vanishing Point’.
I have found that you often get a better “reflection” photo when you lower your perspective significantly. In this case, I dropped down on my haunches to capture the building and sky reflection in a pool of rainwager.
