2 Things Challenge: Earth/Damp

The 2 Things Challenge for this week was Earth/Damp.  When I made this photo, the fog was so thick and the air so humid that everything was sopping wet; my clothes, the camera, the grass, the weeds, the trees, everything.  The whole earth was damp.

Desert Island

We have on our coffee table a book of Ansel Adams photos and letters from the Grand Canyon and the Southwest. I glanced through it a couple of weeks ago and got inspired to revisit some of my photos from a couple of years ago, but this time in black and white. When I showed some of my attempts to my wife, she hemmed and hawed and finally told me she thought they were too sharp and contrasty. They hurt her eyes to look at them. I immediately agreed with her, because she was right, so I tried again on a couple and I thought they came out much better. Both of these are from Mount Desert Island in Maine, home of Bar Harbor.

2 Things Challenge: Church/State

The 2 Things Challenge this week was Church/State. I've interpreted "State" a little loosely, but here is the steeple of Columbiana United Methodist Church, where we attend, with the highest dome of the Shelby County Courthouse next door in the background.
