Creative Photography Challenge ~ Part 3

Made it out today and did a little shooting!!  Love wandering to see what I can find but interesting to also go with a bit of a theme in mind as well.

WIDE ANGLE ~ Yeah, I know its a pano .. but its wide too!! :)


STILL LIFE ~ Statues in Inglewood



DETAIL OR CLOSE UP ~ Just some random things that I have found along the way.

So I am going in no special order just what ever I come across something.  And I thought if I am doing this little challenge my way, I am going to be taking more then one image!!!

LIGHT & SHADOW
It is interesting to see what can fit in to the concept of Light & Shadow, wasn't sure if I was going to come up with something for this but well, I looked up and there is was!!



SPLASH OF RED
There is Red everywhere at this time of year here in Calgary ... Stampede is less than a week away.  Its hard to decided!!  But really like this one image it is simple and I think it works.

Milligan/Ogden Community Carnival ~ Part 2

Ok, so sometimes I am a big kid at heart ... I still love firetrucks and police cars ... I just think they are neat and thats all I can say on that!!

So when I have to opportunity, which is very rarely, I live to photograph them.  I think they are cool and when I have to right opportunity to be creative while shooting, I do so!!!









Milligan/Ogden Community Carnival ~ Part 1

Saturday, I was invited to photograph the carnival in Ogden!! It was great fun and we didn't wet!!  I haven't photograph an event in a while and it took a little to get back into it.  But once I did, it was awesome!!

I am going to share just a few images right now, I am still working/editing up the remainder of them.





I am not a big fan of snakes but taking photos of them, not so bad!! :)



This little guy is cute!!  I have never been this close to a skunk before.  Luckily he was fresh as a daisy!! :)





These guys were ssssooooo good!! I was very very impressed!!!

Well, this is just Part One ... I still have some editing to do and will share more photos over the next couple of days.  There was lots of fun and games had by everyone.
