Weekly Photo Challenge: Perspective   37 comments

This week’s theme was a little disconcerting until I actually read The Daily Post’s invite. So, I guess what it boils down to is that everything in life is a matter of perspective—our own!

That being said, I decided to do the two-photos challenge: up close and perhaps unfamiliar and back aways to get a more accurate rendering of the entire scene. I hope you enjoy.

Comments are welcome.

You’re welcome to come visit my Barns! Barns! Barns! photostream in flickr where you can upload your own photos of old barns, farm houses and other related items.

  1. Nice one! In a first glance I even couldn’t identify that it was snow! Congrats 🙂

  2. Wow! Snow, really?! I had no clue at all from the first picture. Like someone commented earlier, looked like a photo captured under water. Well done!

    • Thank you. I appreciate that. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out.

      The first photo was underexposed the way internal meters normally do. I had to mess around with the second photo to get the snow so it looked half-way like snow. I’m still not sure I got it right.

      One of these days I’m going to have to learn how to use my camera. I’ve only had for something like three years. LOL

  3. Oh wow! At first glance I thought I was looking at something on the moon’s surface. Nice capture! Thanks for inviting me over to your site. I think I’ll stick around and have a look through. 🙂

    • Thanks for your remarks and for taking time to browse through a few of my posts. My favorite of late was Juxtaposition—one of those rare being at the right place at the right time shots. 🙂

  5. Thanks for the url for this post. At times, the blogs I follow aren’t in the reader … UGH !!!
    I this is sooo interesting. Everyone does have a different prospective. I saw an underwater photo
    in the first pix. I wondered how your photographed an undwerwater seen. Then, in the comments,
    I became aware that it’s snow. Great photos … read good!!!!

    • Thanks for your comments and visit. I’ve been fooled a few times myself when I’ve gone around looking at other people’s perspective photos. That added a little bit of spark to the occasion. Keep on keeping on! 🙂

  6. Nice interpretation–both! Thanks for commenting on my blog.

  7. nice shoot.. difficult to capture moments like this

  8. Love these images, Cris: they bring back, as your reader above says, something of the enchantment, excitement and mythology of childhood. As a child, I would spin legends from the animal prints in crisp new snow!

    • Wow! That’s cool. I never had animal prints while growing up, save dogs and cats, I would imagine, having been city bred. Glad I could help you enjoy a little nostalgia. 🙂

  9. Oh wow. This is very cool. I hate snow (because I’m from a tropical country), but whenever I encounter it, I would always try to leave a footprint – never really worked, fresh snow always covered it right away. To found a natural animal footprint is super cool!

    • I know what you mean by fresh snow covering our footprints. When the snow hardens to a crust, it is much easier to leave footprints. Thanks for visiting. It’s nice to “touch bases” with people all over the world through these photo challenges. 🙂

  10. Nice clean hoof prints 😉 A great interpretation of the theme. Glad to have found your blog. WG

    • Thank you. We get a lot of those around here, besides the deer you see here—we get possums, coons, rabbits, turkeys, and coyotes, although they generally don’t get too close to the house, except occasionally.

      It’s fun getting out each week and checking out weekly challenges for 2-3 hours. It’s interesting to see how different people see things differently. 🙂

      • Yes, and to see different parts of the country and world. We have a terrific deer problem here, and a lot of concern for Lyme from the ticks they carry. We’re always trying to keep the deer out of the yard, despite their beauty.. Do you have a trail cam set up to get photos of the critters?

        Best wishes, WG

        • No trail cam. Deer must leave their ticks all over the grass because that is where we get them here in MO. It makes taking hikes around the 30-acre property a bit hazardous—that and chiggers. The deer have even started coming out during the day, where before you hardly ever saw one in the day around here.

          • Sounds just like our community in Virginia…. I’ve found a citrus scented body lotion from Bath and Bodyworks which gives good protection against chiggers, ticks, and mosquitoes. We rub it on all exposed skin before going outside after the first week of May. We see deer at any time of day here now, as well as at night. They ‘re very hungry, and very overpopulated.

          • They’re overpopulated here as well. I had a job where I drove all night for over 5½ years and hit probably 20 deer in that time, 5 or 6 head on going 50-60 mph. It wreaks havoc on my poor cars….and my pocketbook. I finally had to give it up. Wasn’t profitable.

          • No, and wasn’t worth taking a chance to injury. Glad you survived that! Enjoy the day 😉

          • Thanks. Some of them, had the window been down, the results might have been different. Deer don’t much look where they’re going when they’re on the run, and they’re very hard to see in the middle of the night when they’re running because they just come out of nowhere. Appreciate your comments. 🙂

          • Do you know about deer whistles? Seriously, they are little plastic “whistles” which attach to your car. Ours are near the license plate on the front bumper. Air flowing through them when you’re driving creates a high pitched squeal which frightens off the deer. We see the deer hear them, startle, and run the other way when we encounter deer near the road at dusk. Ours came from our insurance agent, but I’ve seen them for sale, also. Might save you an unfortunate incident if you can locate one- Best, WG

          • Yes, I’ve used deer whistles before, although I can’t say as it made any difference in my particular instance. Maybe they don’t hear as well at night. LOL The wind itself eventually carried them off, although I think perhaps a son-in-law might have helped out. 🙂

          • 😉 So far we’ve had good luck with them, but we don’t drive late at night through deer country very much. good luck with that son-in law!

          • Haha. He feels the same way about me. 🙂

          • 😉 Yes, funny that way, isn’t it?

          • 🙂

          • I have several ancestors who hail from VA way back.

          • 😉

  11. At first I thought Bear? until you pulled out i like it….

  12. That takes me back to my childhood, reading books about all the different animal prints. Great shots!

    • Thanks. We get a lot of deer, racoons, opossums and even some wild turkeys on our property. Every once in awhile we get a pack of coyotes fairly close to the house, although I hear them nearly every night, except not so much during the cold winter.

Leave a reply or you know what's good for you. Bwah-ha-ha-ha!
