Talk about a bad day.
You’re already down five legs to three…and then you run into more trouble.
This week’s challenge is about a photo having an unusual point of view. A POV in photography is described as:
“Point of view in photography simply means the position from which the camera sees the scene.”
The photo I chose doesn’t necessarily have an unusual position, but an unusual focus. The subject is the frog but the secondary subject, my good friend Astrid, is almost equally important to this photo in a different way. I wanted the focus to be on the frog but have her also be a presence…otherwise I just would have zoomed in on the frog. In this case, I wanted the background of her holding and looking at the little fella to play an indirect role in the overall photo. Creative, huh? I know. Sometimes I get all artsy like that.
This week’s challenge revolves around the word ‘companionable’. This is defined by dictionary.com as, “possessing the qualities of a good companion; pleasant to be with; congenial.” The World English Dictionary defines it as, “sociable.” Now remember, I’m making these weekly challenges involve my love for insects and wildlife so although you might not agree, in my world it makes perfect sense. 😉
Here’s one of the most companionable guys I know…Chill Froggy (This is a self-portrait so it counts 🙂 )
So, after muuuuuuuch delay on the part of the local internet provider, I am finally back in the land of the living…virtually speaking. We just moved (6 hours away) and after a much needed break from all cabled connections, I am back online. I’ve even had time to whip out a few short stories. (Thanks Facebook break)
So, to kick things off I thought I’d post a few pics from the creatures I’ve encountered so far at the new digs.
I will be doing a post on the above fuzzy guy after doing some extensive research. I’ve heard conflicting stories on what it is exactly and what it can do to you…specifically cause you to itch like hell. So, since picking many of these little guys up (assuming they were moth or butterfly caterpillars) and not feeling a thing, I will be researching and finding out everything you, and I, need to know!
I saved one of the best for last. In the next week I will be doing my post on the green frog tadpoles I’ve been raising. Unfortunately, after reading an erroneous blog by some misinformed person and following their advice (against my gut and better judgement) I lost all 22 of my previous tadpoles. So, I started over and the new ones (10 in all) are now just starting to sprout their hind legs.
