It was a very long time ago that Judy suggested our present "Burtynsky" theme. She's a fan of Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky and wanted to see what we could come up with as a tribute to his work.

It took me a while to get my butt in gear to actually realize the photo that I wanted to do for the theme and then Adrian and Kelly had a baby.

It'll be a while before he is able to get around to doing his idea of the theme.

So rather than delay this game any further, we've decided to go ahead and post my entry, Adrian will skip this theme and we'll go to the next!

Burtynsky-0625 

My shot is angled in such a way as to avoid overhead power lines but in the process I was less than pleased with the overall composition. In any case, there are ideas of oil, mechanisation, quarries, mining, and rhythm all in a landscape-type shot. To seriously attempt a true Burtynsky-type shot, I'd need a helicopter or boom to take the picture from.

Long ago Judy suggested the theme of "Long Ago" on our fan page. Not meaning to take the theme literally, I finally got around to making the picture I had envisioned. Adrian took his shot long ago.

Here are the two shots (click through to flickr to see the images at various sizes):

I suggested this theme. This time Adrian was on the ball submitting entries throughout the last little while. It was only last night that I finally got around to capturing what I had envisioned.

Our next theme suggestion courtesy of Judy was "the same object or scene shot at dawn and at dusk". Once again, Anthony finished his a while ago, and I only got around to shooting mine yesterday. It wasn't for lack of trying, there really weren't a lot of great opportunities given the time of year, and I think the resulting dusk shot demonstrates that. That, and the fact that I couldn't seem to get out of the house when the sun was coming up or going down!

Dusk & Dawn


Dusk 'til Dawn
