I know I shouldn’t complain about the cold weather here in New Jersey. My uncle lives in Fairbanks, Alaska where it has been negative 40 degrees for days, but I don’t live in Alaska and I never will!!! In New Jersey, we expect some cold days. That is one of the greatest thing about living here. We get to experience all four seasons in their glory! I can’t stand this though. It has been so long since it has been warm!
Today, the “Capture your 365” photo prompt was Depth of Field. A difficult one to find something I could also write about, but from what I understand, the photo challenge is to get photographers really thinking about their shots. I looked around the house wondering what to shoot because there was no way I was going outside! I found these shells that Drew had collected while we were in Hilton Head last April. It made me think of the beach and warmth and wound up photographing beautifully. I took so many photos, focusing on the intricacies of each shell, never realizing how beautiful and individual each one was.
This photo captures the huge one he found laying on the beach one morning while we were watching the sunrise. Inside of it was a tinier one that nestled in perfectly. I turned it to black and white just to enhance the details of the shell. This might not be exactly, “Depth of field” but it was my favorite. I might even frame it!
For about fifteen minutes, as I photographed them, I actually wasn’t cold anymore. Only a month or so until Spring! I cannot wait!!
