Excuse another one of my classic puns.
A transition of Monopoly money from lowest to highest denomination. If only it were actually usable.
Weekly Photo Challenge: Transition
Roy G. Biv and his seven women,
All were eccentric,
His spicy Red, always the romantic,
Unique Orange, a bit standoffish
Optimistic Yellow, longed for the future,
Natural Green, soil lover for the rooster
Moody Blue, chronic depressant,
Indigo and Violet, quite inseparate
These were his wives he used to make his name,
And now is the most famous in the grand color scheme game
Weekly Photo Challenge: “ROY G. BIV.”
The third day of this fun course centering around the basics of photography asked me to interpret water. I chose one of the most beautiful places to take pictures of hydrogen and oxygen, the Cascades in my hometown.
The blue phase of the electric waterfall was captured with fine detail. My hand was steady with this shot, making sure the water streaming down was not blurred. I framed this shot by stepping back a few paces, getting all three levels of the falls and the water rushing down below. I can still hear the beautiful sound of the water churning, splashing down in tidal waves on all three levels.
The yellow phase is a little more up close and personal. I see what looks like lacy curtains in the solid looking water. It reminds me of lemon flavored popsicles for some reason, maybe because this shot looks so delicious I can almost taste it.
This shot, strategically captured from the side, incorporates elements of the evening sky with black smoky clouds floating by, the blinding bright light looking like the entrance to some higher world, and the lowly flowers in the turrets.
Ahhh, now we have arrived in a hellish land, an oblivion. The mad, ferocious red and orange of this timely phase baths everything in a hot glow as if it’s a furnace. The water looks strikingly like hot magma, boiling, bubbling, flaring up as the stream splashes down. The fountain in the top right corner shooting red water high into the sky adds to this hellish scene.
And now things cool down to an icy chill with the soothing dark blue phase of the Cascades. The white meshing with the chilling blue in the second level is so frozen looking, I literally feel ice forming in my veins.
I captured everything in perspective with this wide angle shot, getting the rippling of the glistening pool with the luminescent green reflected on its surface.
