I can’t tell you how much fun I have receiving your entries for the challenge. I look forward to each one along with your comments.
RebeKah gave me a giggle with her entry. She actually tried to pull a “Tess” and sent me several flowers. OK… so was I to pick one or what? BTW… they were all excellent. And none of them had titles so I sent her an e-mail back asking her which she wanted to use and a title and this is what I got back…
“Good grief. If I can’t follow directions I should be disqualified!
I’ll pick the “Milk Thistle Flowerheads and Friend” (3 thistles with bee). Since these Milk Thistles are plenteous at this time, I decided to look for some to shoot and saw these in a field behind our local Walmart. The bees were active and I was so entertained I shot for over an hour and was rewarded by quite a number of differing shots that I like.”
Whew! Thank you rebeKah for not making poor Lala choose!
And no… you will not be disqualified!
Now this is the great thing about photography. You do not need to go someplace exotic to shoot to get a good photo. Look at rebeKah. She went to her local Walmart, of all places, and found something beautiful to shoot. And rather than taking one or two shots, she took a bunch and came home with a lot of keepers. She is persistent and knows that maybe a different angle will give her a better viewpoint.
And let me tell you something else about rebeKah… the girl has a great eye! She has won numerous awards on Capture Dallas. She posts interesting and unique photos and she does it all with a point and shoot camera!!! So for all of you out there who think you have to have the latest and greatest and most expensive equipment… think again! She knows her camera and she has a vision when she shoots.
To understand what I am talking about… check out her photo on Capture Dallas. This is one of my favorites and it was chosen as Photo of the Day!
