Photo Challenge: Ooh, Shiny!

SunriseShiny. I have never heard of this expression. In short something that is guaranteed to distract you.

I refuse to go with the obvious. Yes fellow male photographers we shall not go with the obvious.

So what does distract me?

In short the Sunrise and Sunsets from my home office window. Even this morning I was distracted by the Sunrise from the window. And I don’t even face the window when working at the computer because of all the distractions from that window. I have to get up from my desk and walk over to the window and then I’m distracted.

Because of this distraction I now have hundreds, maybe thousands, of Sunrises and Sunsets.

I have less of the Sunsets from that distracting window because when I see a really unique Sunset from my office window I grab the camera and head down to Main Beach here in Laguna Beach.

Now that is a major distraction. You can see one of these major distractions in the header of this blog.

Elemental: Water

Elemental: WaterWater is one of the basic elements. Water changes coast lines. Water rushing down a mountain after a very wet winter cannot be stopped. A tsunami resulted from an earthquake destroys entire cities in it’s path.

In this photo 100 yards beyond the shore the sea appears calm and safe. But it isn’t as shown by the force of the sea crashing against the shore.

satisfaction is a successful photo shoot

Forever Red!You are always on the lookout for that perfect photo. You will never get it but you constantly strive for one.

I’m a point-and-shoot kind of photographer and I am always looking for a good photo. That makes me very bad company when I carry my camera.

There is great satisfaction when I see an approaching photo and I can raise the camera and fire when that photo arrives.

This usually happens when you are walking one direction and the photo approaches in another direction. You must be ready to fire when the photo is in position. You get only ONE try. Miss and the photo evaporates into the past.

This photo was easy in that it was moving very show while making a turn. It was difficult in that it was huge in the camera and you need to compose and shot in an instant.

This shot was a success and clearly satisfying.

It helped in that it’s RED. I love red.

Remember satisfaction is never a given. You must always be ready.
