Minnie's 2021 Project 52

Post by minniev »

Well, I made it through Covid Year with the 52 project against all odds, and I only cheated once. So I'm gonna give it another try this year. The themes are assigned on a list that has already been published on the 52 project Facebook site. I was glad to see a couple of you there! We tried to make the list Covid friendly since we don't know how long we will be homebound this time around.

The first theme is "Simple". Well that isn't so simple for me since I like having the whole kitchen sink in every picture. I went to the dam looking for a single bird, and found a bit of gold fog and some migratory gulls, so here's the result. I liked that he made his own shadow on the fog, I hadn't noticed that they did that before.

Thanks Dave. The dam is my stronghold, my best inspiration, during these times.

Week #2 Theme - Nature in My Back Yard - "Mother Nature's Clock Is Broken"

My backyard is devoid of interest right now, and weather has kept us from the country house, so I did a lackluster shoot in the yard. Then I took 10 photos and set out to make something of them together. The background is a combo of pine bark, an aucuba leaf, and a cedar branch from the leftover Christmas tree. The clock is a broken mushroom and a sprig of holly. The girl is from some collected scanned content, but edited and dressed In a shawl made of an oak leaf. The overlays are more tree bark and the brick exterior wall of the kitchen with some tree shadows on it.

Thanks Dave. Minimalism is not my native photographic style.
