The Dark and the Light

Not only does this gull have both dark and light in his own coloring, but there is the contrast of the lightness of his feathers against the dark water.fullsizeoutput_1ba3White flowers against a dark background.fullsizeoutput_1cbcA black pigeon against a light wooden dock and bright water.fullsizeoutput_1cc6Posted for Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: The Dark and the Light.

I’ve been experimenting with some newer editing tools, and I’ve gotten most of these over saturated. But it’s definitely a learning process!!

Leading Lines

I have, perhaps, a slightly different take on Cee’s Vanishing or Leading Lines Challenge. Rather than choose a path leading somewhere or a line of trees vanishing off into the distance, I chose lines in construction, buildings, cranes, and bridges. All of these lines¬†lead somewhere. Maybe they lead to the next floor, the next wall, the next support column, or to the end of a machine, but all are necessary to live in our world. And serendipitously, the last photo I chose for the challenge happened to include a Brown Pelican who had his own leading lines. No, they weren’t, “What in the world is that construction crane doing behind me?” They were the leading edges (lines) of his wings.
