Backyard Shootout 4

I gave hubby this shoe rack to use for holding his seed pots. He left it laying where I put it a few weeks ago

this is what happened....

Snap! Instant art!

Snap! again more art

Last Snap! true art in the back yard.
I have found that the simplest thing may not look like anything at all, but backing up and getting closer and holding the camera and my body at different angles, changes the ordinary into extraordiary.
do you PLAY with your camera like this?

Love it! It looks like my yard right now, if anything is left out on the lawn it will have all sorts of stuff growing over and around in no time.

Oh yes, from every angle possible. That's why I have so many photos on file. :)

That is why you are such a good photographer.

I try that with food but it doesn't seem to work as well.

You ARE a great photographer....have you ever submitted any of your photos to be published? You really do a great job!

George said...

You are convincing me that I don't experiment enough with my camera. I really like the way you find art in your backyard.

Chatty Crone said...

I have not played with my camera like that - hopefully when I get more time - in the meantime - I do enjoy looking at yours. Thanks.

Ginny said...

Yikes, plants in jail!! Well, all good art is interpretive, isn't it? And you KNOW I play with my camera! While Phil lingers in the car singing hymns to pass the time. Let us know when they get probation.

LC said...

Yes, I play with my camera like that; but my results are not nearly as good as yours. Oh well, I can always visit the MadSnapper when my photos aren't what I want them to be!

Ann said...

Yes, I sure do. I think I need more practice with it
Love your back yard art

Snapper II said...

Have not had time to do a comment today till now. Great contrasts in this post.

Now for my favorite....Maters.

I would not even bother to move it now. See what happens. Yes, I play around compulsively like that all the time. Nice to know you do too.

Regina said...

I've never done that (smile) When it comes to gardening you have to be creative. I'm seeing so many different flowers blooming already. I have my work cut out:)

Love your backyard art! Great photography

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Sure do, Sandra, which is why my photo files keep getting bigger and bigger. It always amazes me just how much fun I can have with a eimple (or complex) object. I know you get this!

JDS said...

Those are good pictures. I have found that just about everything has beauty, but most people don't bother to look for it.

S. Etole said...

What fun to see from different angles!

Stacey Dawn said...

Yup! I do....
How fun for you!!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Glad you are enjoying your backyard art, Sandra... There are always so many things to photograph... We went to Fall Creek Falls State Park yesterday --and I kept looking for odd things to photograph... I needed the Madsnapper there to give me more ideas!!!!
