For this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge, please post a photo that is unusual in some way for you, whether it be through technique, by subject, or in some other unique way. This theme is wide open to interpretation because only you know what is unusual to you.
Fungus. Fungus is definitely an unusual topic for me. But this fungus was so unusual and so compositionally interesting to me that I had to take a series of pictures.
Thanks for stopping by this week to check out what struck me as unusual. The other entries for this week’s photo challenge can be found here.
Collage: An assortment, a collection, a hodgepodge. This week, share one — whether found in the wild or assembled yourself. The Daily Post ~Michelle Weber
Yesterday I came across this collection of beachy material and snapped a few shots. No changes were made to the composition; this is exactly as the objects appeared in the wild. In the sense that hodgepodge is collage, I believe this fits this week’s challenge.
Here’s my contribution to this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Collage. For this challenge, I learned how to create a photo gallery, above. If you click on one photo, you will be able to view each one at full size.
Playing around with depth of focus is always a lot of fun. While I would love to take a fabulous landscape photo with everything clear and in sharp focus, more often I enjoy switching to a more shallow depth of focus, with the foreground being the subject and the expected subject being blurred.
This challenge really struck a chord with me. The evanescence – fleeting existence – of the tableaus I find on the beach is part of their charm and attraction for me. Here are a few more Oregon Coast still lifes:
Soon passing out of sight, memory, or existence; quickly fading or disappearing.

The still life tableaus I find at the beach are evanescent; I have to capture them at that moment, before the wind and the surf sweep them away. Their fleeting existence is part of what intrigues me and inspires me to look for interesting juxtapositions of color, form, and texture.
