Some of These Things Are Not Like the Others

On the same day this week when I was nearly murdered by turkeys (see yesterday’s post), and in the same location, I was also taking photos on the bank of a creek.  Here are  a few of the treasures I spotted.

  1. Yes, they are completely passive safe objects though, to convert them suddenly to attack the perception of the viewers is, your skill.
    Well done.

    • Thank you, Sandy! For some reason, I feel like I can really hear your tone of voice in your comments, not only here, but so many other places I’ve seen you visit. I love that.

  4. Your interest was obviously quite focused on the little details (the last one is my favorite); it’s really a good thing that you became aware of the approaching security guard in time!

    • Yes, I’m usually “lost in focus,” if you know what I mean, and completely unaware of others around me, so intent on what I’m looking at, so it’s a wonder I haven’t been surprised by wild visitors before. Maybe I have been, and never even knew it!

    • Yes, I love it. I think it’s the type of photography I enjoy the most.

  6. These are beautiful shots! I especially love the red subject.. a piece of glass? This post reminds me I need to have a photo outing of my own somewhere outside of where I usually go. Thanks for posting!

    • Nelson, thank you so much for your nice compliment. I really appreciate your stopping by. The red subject is some sort of firm jellied something… maybe a piece of candy left behind. I have another shot, which is not quite in focus, where it looks like it’s with some lunch “leftovers”. The other items have all decomposed (what looks like an apple, maybe, and some other things), but this candy is still fully intact. It’s quiet strange, but the color sure is rich.

    It takes an eye of wonder to perceive the beauty in the smallness of things – this you have in plenty.

  9. Lovely photos Melanie.
    I really love and enjoy your blog, you always show the things that people don’t pay much attention too, and that is very interesting.

    Hope you are having a great weekend!
