Capture 52 Catch Up

So far, so good, I’m staying fairly well caught up on the Capture52 photo challenge.
I do mean to share them here too but I forgot to last week, that’s why this is a “catch up” post.

Week 2 was “Framed”

fencing around the turkey/duck yard

I quite liked the way the frost framed the turkey/duck yard fencing.
What was even better was watching the turkeys peck at the frost and marvel when it melted in their mouths.
😂😂😂
As I have previously said, turkeys is my stupid children…but they are so much fun.

Week 3 was “Mobile Phone”

Booooop the snooooot!

I do not have the greatest phone camera.
This phone’s is better than the last one, but I really just needed a basic smrt phone, so I didn’t go all out on something with a camera better than Voldemort…because it’s easy to do that and then you have this expensive phone to pay for.
Uh, no thanks. I’m good with this. 😂😂😂
And beside, this ain’t too shabby for a phone picture!

Next up is “Scapes”…land, sea, city or maybe garlic? If my garlic was growing?
But at a brrrrrrr inducing -23*c before the windchill, my garlic is busy sleeping and getting ready to burst forth come time for spring warmth.
So I figure I’ll end up with a landscape shot with some sort of animals in it…
We’ll have to see. I do have the week ahead of me to take the shot.

Capture52 Week 11 ~ NQR

Yep, behind again.
lol

NQR stands for “not quite right” and for that I offer you this:

It is a very cute shot.
I love, love, love the faces a horse makes while having a good shake after a roll.
Makes me smile every damn time.
But, it also makes it hard to get a good, crisp image.
And that’s part of why this one is “not quite right”.
Focus isn’t spot on, Astrid is in an odd spot in the frame and the snow is blown out in the background.
It’s not a bad enough image that I’d cull it.
Let’s face it, perfect images are awesome, but the not quite right ones are fun too.
And, rules are made to be broken.

Capture 52 Week 9 ~ Pets

As I wandered out to pasture to take pictures of Astrid napping, my faithful feline companion joined me on my trek.

Here MaxCat takes a moment to look around and decide if it’s safe for his Food Lady (me) to proceed.

I know I missed last week’s Capture52 prompt Bucket List.
I’m still working on that one and will post it asap.

Capture52 ~ Week 7 Love

I’m slow.
Last week was Love.
But I was waiting for weather to settle down, for the sun to shine, for things to be just right before I created the images I wanted for this prompt.

1978
My Dad bought this rifle for my Mom’s birthday.
Had their names and the date engraved on it.
“Elaine May 13/78
Love Rene”

Both my parents are gone now, and this is mine.
A family heirloom that will be passed on to my daughter when she’s ready for it.
Love is shown in so many different ways…this one, to me, is beautiful and captures my parents love for each other perfectly.
💛💛💛

Capture52 Week 5 ~ Portrait

“All photos to be taken/converted to monochrome. Focus on the tone of your capture.”
With that I give you…
Ruby, napping in the remnants of an exploded (“I don’t know how it happened, but I know it’s Sable’s fault”) oat straw bale.

Green

Capture52 week4 ~ Green

Test pot of green beans growing in the kitchen window.

Weekly themes guide photographers to create new images.
I’m finding it a fantastic way to force myself to keep shooting, even when the urge to hibernate is strong.

Hurray!!

I didn’t even have the slightest idea what I was going to post for the Word of the Day Challenge.
Apparently WordPress was going to help me out with that though.
I have been sitting here for the past 2 hours trying to upload photos.
But they kept being rejected as too big (same size I always upload at, and I still have plenty of space) or timing out.

Either way, I finally got a few images uploaded and now y’all get my Capture52 image for the week.
The theme for the week was Architecture.

Once a place of laughter and fun, the dome is quiet in the still of the winter’s day.

Next week’s theme is green.
😂😂😂
It’s January in Canada.
Green is gonna take some creativity…which is the point of the challenge, right?
We’ll just have to see what I can come up with.

And now, I’m off to try to up load more images.
If you hear a loud “Hurray!!” yelled, it’s because things worked the way they should.
As long as you don’t hear the endless cursing, we’re good.

Landscape

Week 2 on the Capture52 photo challenge is landscape…
What’s better to shoot than in my own back yard?

“Does this landscape make me look fat?”
Ruby asks.
