Word of the week Photo Challenge: Night
Posted by joeabbott on February 16, 2013
The first was that I’d only shoot with my phone; the second being that “I got what I got”.
Given the result of my picture taking effort from last night, I’m reconsidering.
In our backyard we have a chicken coop. It’s about a hundred yards off the back of the house and up the hill. We put decorative lights on the trim the first Christmas season and haven’t taken them down. They’re plain white and help to give a small amount of light but, better yet, they make it look nice and remind us of our backyard denizens.
So when I think of “night”, I think on our backyard, garden paths edged with solar lanterns and the coop and its cheery light looking like a nice place for our hens.
But, my skill at photography, and especially when limited to using my cell phone, leaves me wanting a better showing.
The picture to the right is what I got by climbing even higher up the hill in the back and shooting down at the coop … it was the only way I could avoid lights from the street behind from ruining the picture.
Tonight I may try better … and will post here if I do … but, enjoy a little “night” from our backyard to you!
