Day Eighteen/Photo101: Through the Glass…Strangely

Quite fun playing with glass and what happens when you shoot into it with flash. As usual I did not get out and about to really spend the time I should with each day’s assignment/theme. But here’s what I did manage. A selfie. Glass and camera settings and me.

Day Eight/Photo101: Big

BIG isn’t really easy to take a picture of if it’s an ordinary day and you don’t have very much time and there are NO BIG buildings or sculptures around. Oh sure, there are the Sandia and Manzano Mountains just east of town but they’re not BIG mountains and this is BIG Sky Country but mountain and sky shots are best taken someplace other than my parking lot at work.

Maybe the perfect photo op will come to mind if I make a list of a few of the words we’ve turned into iconic phrases by putting the word BIG in front of them: deal, man, picture, time, Apple, Gulp, Mac and two of my favorites, freakin’ deal, wide world.

I can see there still might be a problem. I am not going out for a Big Gulp or a Big Mac just for today’s photo. Nope, no way. BIG? Hmmm….

I know!  My Big 2015 Trip. BIG2015TRIP. B15T. From Bergen, Norway on the Atlantic Ocean across the Eurasian Continent to Beijing, China on the Pacific Ocean. By land and sea. Just me.

Beyond BIG, today’s assignment/challenge is to consider point-of-view. So here it is. Something Big—as in the world. Shot from the POV of me gazing at its whole or various parts with longing, excitement and maybe a little fear!
