Stepping out


Today's Picture Spring prompt involves 30 steps. As in, take 30 steps in any direction from where your camera is sitting and take a picture of what you find.  The idea is that you don't have to travel great distances to get a great image.

My 30 steps landed me in our driveway, where I saw lots of things, but I ended up honing in on our birdbath and the little artful chickadee that sits there 365 days a year, hoping for a friend to join him from time to time. This is cropped from the original size and the saturation was greatly increased to give it a more surreal quality.

See I don't have the creativity to think of shots like this - I've gotta work on that! I'm going to my parent's farm tomorrow & there's sooooo much out there to shoot so I'm gonna keep this shot here in mind while I'm there!

Tricia - I look for pictures EVERYWHERE, and really strive to find uncommon things. Practice makes perfect, girl! Have fun at the farm!
