52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog


19. Poverty and/or Wealth

It’s getting down to the wire. My 52 Week Challenge will be ending the last week of July. A couple of the remaining themes I have saved intentionally. Others are because I am trying to find something that isn’t to similar to what others have posted. This post is an example of a shift in perception to find my photo.

I thought the perfect place to find a photo for this theme was downtown Sarasota. The wealth can be extreme there as can the poverty. I was in a search of a photo showing them side by side. The extreme I had pictured prior to my trip was no where to be found and I was feeling a bit frustrated. Then this HUGE yacht docked at Marina Jack’s caught my eye. I thought wow, there is wealth for sure. But I thought hmmm, isn’t any boat docked at a marina a representation of wealth? For someone with NO boat it is… but to the guy docked right next to the huge yacht it might not feel that way. It’s all about perception isn’t it?Image


36. Light

I thought this series of photos would be nice for the theme “Light.” I enjoyed watching how the scene changed as the light changed. When taking the photos I thought my favorite photo would be the one showing the sunsets reflection in the mirrored building against the contrasting sky in the background. But as the light changed I wasn’t so sure. I loved playing with the exposure time and catching the light of the head lights and tail lights of the passing cars.
