This week’s Photo Challenge is Inside.

Inside is safe

  33. You take the best pictures! Do you sit around and wait for them? Or do they set themselves up as you approach with your camera?

    Like

    • Well, it’s pretty clear that sitting around and waiting for them isn’t a productive approach at all. If you never go out (literally or metaphorically) and take pictures, you’ll never have any good ones. And even when do go out, actively searching for them is much better than passively waiting for them to appear…

      Come to think of it, that’s what this post is sort of about :-)

      Beyond that, we reach deep waters. Does the photographer record, or create? Lots of answers to that question, most of them contradictory. A subject for another post, perhaps… ;-)

  38. Fighting conches? Now tell me that doesn’t sound like a sports team mascot. But what sport? The Florida Fighting Conches vs. _______?

  39. My goodness! You got them just as they were peaking from their shells. What timing! Did you use a zoom?

    Like

    • Didn’t need any precise timing, really—they just kept on doing their thing, slowly, ignoring me completely :-)

      Yes, I think all these were taken with my telephoto zoom, in all the closeups at around 300mm, probably…
