So TJ of TJ's Photo Expressions mentioned joining in on a photo scavenger hunt being hosted by NicoleB. I was thinking, Nicole has the upper hand getting to shoot in Hungary at the moment. But that's the great thing about photography. It opens your eyes to the great and unique things around you, where ever you are.
That's why I'm doing this assignment. It gets you to appreciate what's right in your back yard and gets you to open your eyes. I will post what I've got so far and hopefully will finish by 3-15-09, the due date. Feel free to snap along. It doesn't matter if you're just doing point and shoot or creating works of art. It's about SEEING. Have fun and sign up at NicoleB Daily.
I'll bump this back up to a current post once it's done.
4) something rusty (bridge in Oak Ridge TN)
8) part of your neighborhood (it can be a very small part)
Reflection of sky and tree in the pond in our subdivision.
9) traditional house (John Oliver's cabin in Cades Cove during last week's field trip. Not the best angle but I wanted to show the river rock chimney. This has carried over into the regional modern homes, even the McMansions on golf courses use a lot of river rock.)
12) local transportation (Stuck in infinite construction mode, it's been suggested that the TN state symbol be changed to an orange/white construction barrel. I snapped this one from an overpass last thursday when I640 was snarled.)
13) traditional local clothing (Well, it IS TRADITIONAL if you happen to be a HAZMAT worker involved in the clean up of the decades of radioactive waste in Oak Ridge! A comment to a November 2008 article in Knoxville News Sentinel: "My projection is those white protective suits will become the new fashion in Oak Ridge." Shot taken 3-14-09 at AMSE. )
14) night sky (Yacht club taken at 11pm on Lake Loudon under a full moon, TN. 30 sec exp)
15) sunrise (Moon over sunrise at Lake Loudon)
16) local product non food (Electricity - per Wikipedia, the Tennessee Valley Authority TVA is the nation's largest public power company, providing electric power to nearly 8.5 million customers in the Tennessee Valley. It acts primarily as an electric power wholesaler, selling to 158 retail power distributors and 61 directly served industrial or government customers. Power comes from dams providing hydroelectric power, fossil fuel plants, nuclear power plants, combustion turbines and wind turbines.)17) something furry (Ollie the Wonder Chinchilla)
24) a street sign (near Building K-25 the top secret facility, now being torn down, that developed the uranium 235 used in the bomb dropped on Hiroshima)
25) a local mail box (30 second exposure of my 9 y/o at midnight at our mailboxes last month after a snowstorm, I thought the blurred face made him look like a ghost from A Haunting)
