Crusty Fish

One more fish from the fountain in downtown San Jose.   Not much else to say other than this one is rusty, crusty and warty.  The composition of this one isn’t quite as strong as yesterday’s but I think it works.  I should have time to get out today to get some shots as well as see the 6C competition this afternoon.  Maybe one of my prior wins will place!  We’ll see.

Old Fountain

The historic area of downtown San Jose has an old fountain in the park that doesn’t look like it has been used for years.  It is very rusty and very cool.  I was pressed for time on taking these since the fam was with me and impatient.  Not to mention, it was after brunch on Mother’s day.  I plan to return when I have more time.  In the meantime, I was climbing around a bit in the fountain and grabbed some detail shots.  I am pretty sure we’re looking at a fish head here.    Just under the upper-lip is a mosquito hiding out.  Apparently the small flying insects that surf in my photos surf on fish. 🙂


Catching up in photo assignments

Starting from later in the game doesn’t make it easy to do all of the Daily Shoot assignments.  I took some time over the holiday to try and catch up on a photo-walk around town.  Here is what I came up with for a few of the assignments.

Clockwise from the top left:

#ds9: “You might not be next to an ocean, but surely you can find some water around you to take a photo of.”

#ds14: “Sunday challenge time! Pattern is built on repetition, like a rhythm. Make a photo of a regular or irregular pattern.”

#ds16: “Doors can have a lot of character, be it in the hinges, knob, or style. Make a photo of a door you pass through today.”

#ds17: “Let’s play around with contrast today, to help train the eye for it. Make a photo that has contrasting colors.”
