Week 31: Outdoor Photography - WILDLIFE PRESERVATION

“Georgian Bay Sunrise” — A mid-August sunrise peeks over an island in the Georgian Bay. Surrounded by other cottages on nearby islands, this island in particular has been largely designated as "crown land", meaning it is owned by either the Canadian federal government or (in the case of this island) the local provincial crown, and cannot be developed while government-held, remaining wild. Wildlife ranging from seagulls and loons to chipmunks to black bears are known to inhabit the area. 

Canon Rebel T3i (600D), 18-250mm lens at 18mm, ISO 100, f/16 for 1/20 sec.

WEEK 32 ARCHITECTURE – SYMMETRY

The MD Anderson Library on the University of Houston campus.  The limestone and round entrance is what caught my eye -- the fisheye lens adds to the effect. 

Square crop and "mild" distortion correction done in Lightroom.

Week 32 Architecture - Symmetry 
I'm not very good at the technical stuff, but I'm learning. I LOVED playing with GIMP...what a program. So many things to 'play' with. especially now that I've purchased my first camera (Nikon D3100)
On to my photo. I knew exactly what I wanted to photograph for this challenge. When I'm happy, sad, frustrated, angry, needing some time to myself or any other reason, I go to this place. The Dayton Art Institute. I get in the door, go up the stairs and take off my shoes. For me, there is nothing more calming, relaxing, thought provoking, curiosity encouraging than walking barefoot/in stocking feet through the art galleries. Looking, thinking contemplating, enjoying. BONUS! The outside is as beautiful as the inside. The lines, the symmetry, the textures! #Photochallenge2015

Welcome back to another week of architectural photography. I want to highlight that when I first created this community, I was set on helping photographers of all skills and abilities in growing towards whatever they considered “the next level”. I had made friends with a number of photographers, primarily through photowalking and old photo sharing …

Well I was thinking of breaking this one out for Halloween but I have an even better Challenge for that. So this will be kind of a training milestone for a future challenge. Meanwhile you may be wandering what I’m looking for. Well it’s a simple challenge as far as technical goes. Much simpler than …

Week 34: Numbers - Odd Groups
I'm sorry for the late entry, been sort of crazy week. All week I wondered what to take a shot of. I played with a few things and then as I was sitting on our patio one evening, I looked up and there was my shot! Comments always welcome! #photochallenge2015

Week 33 Macro - Carbonation 
I love red. I love creme soda. I love strawberry soda. Hence, the photo is of red soda! I'm still learning how to shoot with my new camera and it not being on auto, so I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out. I still can't tell you the F/stop or any other stats but I'm learning... #photochallenge2015

2015 CHALLENGE, WEEK 32 ARCHITECTURE – SYMMETRY
#photochallenge2015 
The James J. Hill House in Saint Paul, Minnesota, was built by railroad magnate James J. Hill, builder of the Great Northern Railway. Rugged stone, massive scale and fine detail. Built in 1891, it is 36,000 sq.ft on five floors with 13 bathrooms, 22 fireplaces, 16 crystal chandeliers, a two-story sky lit art gallery and a 100-foot reception hall. His mansion symbolized success with a Richardsonian Romanesque style.

WEEK 31 OUTDOOR PHOTOGRAPHY – CECIL THE LION

Cinco Ranch is an 8000+ acre master planned community west of Houston.  In the midst of these thousands of homes, the planners have maintained the wetlands that are the headwater for Buffalo Bayou.  Houston owes its nickname of "The Bayou City" to Buffalo Bayou.  

This bayou continues to thrive and continues to be home to wild hogs, herons, egrets, bobcats, and countless reptiles (including the turtle you see here as well as alligators and snakes).

Week 31 Outdoor Photography - Wildlife Preservation
I'm not in a position to do the technical challenge so I stuck with the challenge most near and dear my heart. Preservation of our wildlife. I'm lucky enough to have many preservation areas in my immediate area and I love to go and just BE with nature. Listening to it; Being still with it; Smelling it. I've found many great photo ops while walking and sitting within the safe realms of these preservation areas. As I snapped off shot after shot, I captured this shot of a Bee. I've been hearing and reading about honeybees dying ( I don't believe my bee is a honeybee, but still...)  it concerns me greatly. I'm so thankful there are places where wildlife can remain undisturbed and hopefully thrive as we humans tear down and concrete over everything. The concrete jungle keeps growing and growing and it saddens me greatly. We all need to be doing our part to ensure all creatures, big and small, have their natural habitats to do what they need to do. If I could, I would buy up every large wooded area before some developer had a chance to and just let it be. Wildlife needs to be where they are meant to be, and do what they need to do. OUR lives depend on it! Stepping down off of the soap box #Photochallenge2015

MEMBERS REQUESTED A NEW MORE TECHNICAL CHALLENGE. THIS IS THE NEW CHALLENGE. THE CECIL THE LION CHALLENGE IS STILL IN EFFECT. READ THE BLOG FOR DETAILS. THANKS
I believe that by now we've all heard the story of Cecil the Lion. It's raised a great deal of debate over Trophy Hunting and Wild Life Preservation.
