Today was going to be a combination post. When we went out Sunday, I had in the back of my mind Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge, which was Lines (I’ve missed the entry time though, I might be able to post some for the new Challenge – Textures!).
I was surprised by how many things I saw that could fall in that category!
So, on to the artsy shots!
First, the path was wet, and furrowed with the tracks of many cyclists:
The open areas allowed an unobstructed view of empty trees:
There had been a controlled burn at some point recently, taking down huge swathes of cattails. It left behind 6-10″ high stalks, devoid of any resemblance of their former life:
Lastly, small trees (don’t know what they are) that normally line the riverbank are partially submerged by high water. I like both of these – the black and white is a close crop of the center. Still not quite what I thought it would be, but perhaps interesting in a different way. I was hoping they would look more line-like, but I seem to have gotten more texture than I realized.
To finish off, two more shots I have converted to B&W, with one that seems to work, and one that works, maybe, not so much.
