WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGES 3/1 & 5/10/2013
LOST IN THE DETAILS & PATTERN
The March 1, 2013, wordpress weekly photo challenge was lost in the details .
Yes, I know this is way late—March 1 is long gone, and 2013 has rolled over to 2014. However, some of the photo challenges have been sitting around waiting for me to complete them.
This challenge is about getting lost in the details. Once you’ve found a subject you want to photograph, challenge yourself to work a little further into the scene.
This type of photography is not new to me, so I plucked out three examples from my files. The first example came from photographs I shot at Popham Beach in Maine. We were there at low tide, and the ripples on the sand created an interesting pattern, which I photographed at wide angle, then a close-up.
The close-up also would match the wordpress photo challenge for May 10—pattern : Patterns are everywhere. Patterns are sometimes intentional and sometimes accidental. They can be decorative or merely a result of repetition, and often patterns can be in the eye of the beholder to discover them.
The second example was taken at the Chapel of the New Jerusalem in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
The final example gives a sense of some of the research my husband Monte and I did for my novel. We were in the Ellsworth, Maine, courthouse copying land deeds and maps. The first is an 1881 overview of the area where Hog Bay is, which leads to Schoodic Mountain , which a character in my novel, Madame Rosalie de Leval, and I both climbed.
