52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

15. High Key

Yes, I am the crazy lady who was sitting on the floor of the Sea Hagg today taking a photo of keys on a string! I wanted to do something other than the obvious for this theme. I’ve been looking for keys hanging from a high place for several weeks now. So, when I noticed these keys hanging today they were not quite as high as I would have liked them to be…. that explains why I was sprawled out all over the place. I wanted my keys to be REALLY high!

High Key


Thanks to Diana Broda for sending me a copy of the photo she took of my getting my “High Key” photo! That will teach me to be silly in a store full of other photographers! HA

49. Ugly

I’m going to use my Sea Hagg photo for my “Ugly” shot. I suppose to a small child she might seem ugly, but looking through my lens baby I thought she was pretty!

47. A Pair Of…

During a recent visit to the Cortez fishing docks I took a photo of “A Pair Of” white pelicans!

A cousin to the brown pelican, the stunning white pelican, is one of the largest birds in all of North America with an impressive 108-inch wing span. They are found throughout the state, but on Florida’s Gulf Coast, between Sarasota and Naples, you’ll find large communities of these wintering visitors. More timid in nature than brown pelicans, they find safer, more secluded environments such as estuaries, lakes, mangrove islands or within geographically protected areas, rather than open water.
