Weekly Photo Challenge – Vibrant

With the overcast week we have had, I did not find a good photo opportunity for this weeks challenge.  So I reached way back into the archives to our honeymoon in Ireland to find this vibrant picture.

Back in 2010, we visited this vibrantly colored pub in Dingle, Ireland.

As the winter starts to fade, sports fans start to think of baseball.  Each Spring it is a fresh slate.  Any team can win it all.

Weekly Photo Challenge: On the Way

Growing up in the United States in the 1970s, one of the great moments of childhood was the Family Road Trip. Immortalized in the original Vacation movie, all people of my age will have fond memories of a cross-country trek with the family.  I have had several of these growing up.  California, Kentucky, and the infamous Washington DC trip in the summer of 1975.

Although we never stopped to see Clark Griswold’s Second Largest Ball of Twine, no family vacation would be complete with out visiting one of the many roadside attractions designed to lure in travelers to spend a little cash.  Paul Bunyan Statues, Sun Glass Wearing Elephants, and if you are in traveling outside Madison, Wisconsin, there is this way larger than life cow:


I will have to hunt through my pictures and see if I can find any other great attractions we have stopped to see One the Way.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Depth (of Field)

I took a walk over the weekend with the idea that I was going to look for specific things to photograph to illustrate Depth of Field.  Here is what I shot.

Two contrasting pictures at a closed truck yard on Madison Street.

The Post

The Truck

The first photo obviously has a much shorter depth of field, focusing just on the fence post, but the second has a much larger depth, stretching all the way back to the buildings behind the truck.

They are basically the exact same picture, with a different focus and depth of field.
