Photography: contemplation, reflection and Wow!

There are occasions when photography seems to fill my creative needs. Below are three photographs taken recently each to produce different reactions. The first was taken of a young preteen, preoccupied in the moment with her own contemplation. I was struck by the pose and felt the need to render the photograph in black and white for full effect!



Lost in Contemplation


This photo was taken by the Columbia River. I was fascinated here with the clear reflections in the water, both the structures and the clouds. I also liked the mixing of the clean lines of the metal structure amid the natural bluing effect of nature’s sky and water (also reflected in the water).

Wow, yep, that’s one huge strawberry, the wow is self explanatory, and it was delicious too!

Thank you,

  1. Great pix!
    What can I say about the fist other than what you already know?
    The 2nd pic is quite inviting.
    I tried to pull the strawberry from your post – – – no luck. Oh well…

  2. Absolutely love photo #1 Penny — she is so animated and gorgeous! The other two have given me yearning for nature and fresh berries! What a lovely post — you are a stellar photographer too – why am I not surprised? πŸ™‚ ~ Love and Affection to you my beautiful friend — always a light in my day when I visit here πŸ™‚ ~ x RL

    • Thank you so much Robyn. Actually these posts right now are my breaks from the writing going on with the book. As it turns out being creative in a different format seems to help for when I return to writing something nonfiction! I guess that makes sense, lol! I hope you’re enjoying the weekend and that your weather is cooperating with you (I have a visual of you riding your bike! :)), dearest friend of mine, much love and hugs to you, Penny xo

  3. I love all three of those photos. The black and white says so much. You can see the concentration in her face. The second one … that is gorgeous. The reflections are exquisite, just perfect. And that strawberry … WOW!!! That would need a lot of cream πŸ˜‰

Thank you for your thoughts!
