Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #26 -- Hit Me With Your Best Shot
This has long been my favorite shot of all of my sunset shots, which are what I feel are my best. It was taken at Seaside, Oregon, many years ago. It was a film shot, not digital, as at the time digital cameras were brand new if they were even around at all. This is as large as Blogger will let me post the shot so the seagulls in silhouette on the rock aren't super-easy to see.
Carly at Ellipsis says that for extra credit we can talk about our personal style as a photographer, why we like a particular subject, and what is the most challenging aspect of photography for us.
My personal style seems to range from cats to flowers to sunsets. People, especially family members, are often my subjects, too. And food! These are the subjects I find most interesting. I like sunsets in particular because of the dramatic colors a pretty one will produce. The most challenging aspect of photography is the motion shots, whether of cats or of people, but especially of cats. I keep my camera's automatic setting on the action mode just in case I am able to take a fun series of cat pictures.
Head to Carly's at the link above to see links to last week's pictures, and URL's in the comments that will take you to this week's participants. There will be instructions there on how to participate if you would like!
