Week 5 – 52 Week Photography Challenge

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The challenge last week was “Shoot 10 shots of the same subject. Each shot should be from a different angle, distance, and focal length. Share your favorite image from the set.” Week 5’s challenge is late, obviously. Work has been so outrageous that I struggled to get 10 shots. Honestly, the photo here is my favorite out of what was 15 shots. I say “was”, because this was shot over a year ago. The one on the right is one of those 15 shots.

These photos are from our family trip to New Orleans. We had a great time there, and no, we did not do Mardi Gras. We spent our time checking out the geat architecture, shopping, and the excellent food.  We also spent a great deal of time just walking the streets of downtown New Orleans. As soon as I saw this street I knew I had to snap a few pics, okay, hundreds of pics. I took them from different angles, lenses, focal points etc.

There was something about the modern setting contrasted by items from days past that caught my attention. I believe these horse heads were used to tie up horses back in the day, the transportation of that era. The funny thing is, they still stand guard over our modern transportation, the lines of unassuming cars packed into every street. Their purpose today is purely decorative and I loved the composition.

Here is my favorite shot from that batch titled, Giddy Up.
