This week's theme: hidden picture (stuff hiding in our photos). I wasn't on high alert for this till it was time to leave and I didn't have anything so I was relieved to find a sea serpent in the pools of Ax les Thermes. These have been considered healing pools since around 1300 AD. i think he just lashed the woman on the other side of the pool with his tail.

Glad you could see him. Sometimes my imagination is my downfall.

This week's theme was "Speed"

So here goes an experiment that didn't quite work out, but 52 projects are good places to experiment and share even if the results are not grand.

I wanted to try a photo where I let the main subject blur while holding the surroundings in focus, which is the opposite of what I usually try to do to convey speed (keep the subject in focus by panning or something while the background goes blurry to suggest speed). I tried to keep enough focus to tell there were people. Overall I don't think it worked too great, but it was a fun try.

I have always struggled in capturing a moving object coming directly towards me, whether it be a fast moving person, car, truck etc. Sometimes I have had success, but for the most part ...no. Here would be an example of just that. The 4 wheeler's wheels/tires out of focus is excellent to show motion, but the riders are out of focus. I suppose a burst of shots would have been in order to possibly capture one in focus. Practice, practice, practice have always been key for me and I still continue to establish out of focus subjects.

I think you're right, a burst would have given me something more to work with.

I guess that goes to show that even if you do what you're trying to do, it may not turn out to be great.

I like that last shot, if everything was frozen, then the sense of speed wouldn't be there. Love the detailed sharpness of the image overall and you absolutely know where they have been and where they are going. They are framed very nicely by their environment. Any you captured their fearless lean into where they are headed - and I like the contrast against the old slow red tractor on the left.
