Get Back to School with Redbubble – Shop Here!

Went out to check the snail mail and came back inside with this. Yes, folks, ol’ hawk eye here noticed one of the hibiscus flowers casting a shadow on the veranda wall so I grabbed the Nikon D3100 and took a pic. Pretty cool, huh? 50mm, manual focus.

I’m a hobby photographer. In fact, I’m not sure Red Bubble should refer to me as an “artist”. But I do like to take photos that are above average, and certainly appreciate learning from my fellow Bubbleonian’s efforts as well as their comments. I use a second hand Sony Cybershot F717 (recently replaced by a new Nikon D3100) and a Fuji Finepix S7000. Photography allows me to keep souvenirs of my experiences. Today’s deeds become tomorrow’s memories.

    You`re getting too creative Gary,it`s a great shot.Pretty cool indeed.

  • Well, it was ‘there’, Terry, and screamed for a photo. I’m quite chuffed with the fact that I noticed it… maybe I’m becoming more observant.

    outstanding beauty nice one Gary.

  • Thanks for the fav, Julie. The thing that excites me most about that shot is that it’s a departure from my normal flower shots. The shadow adds another dimension. I hope it becomes a habit!

    I like the shadow here Gary. Awesome.

  • Yep, that’s the whole point, isn’t it. The shadow steals the show. Funny how you notice these things when you take an interest in photography. :)
