Time for a new Brenda Photo Challenge! The theme is The Eyes Have It, picked by the current challenge hostess, Brenda of What's UP down South. Thank you, Brenda, for choosing an interesting subject!
You would never win a staring contest with the fellow posing below. This is a totem pole in the Northwest section of the Memphis Zoo. (I think Brenda may recognize it!) The photo was taken at f/8 and 1/250 second.
It didn’t take much coaxing to get Cosmos, my sweet horse neighbor, to come over to the fence and model for me. To show the texture of her coat, I applied a poster edges filter to the digital image. The camera settings were f/8 and 1/1000 second.
I was lucky to catch Cosmos turning her head to look at me directly, and I quickly framed up this lovely image with her mane in the out-of-focus background. The photo was taken at f/9 and 1/1250 second.
I also decided to add a little goofiness and springtime cheer to the challenge by snapping a photo of one of my stitched ornaments. (Marty was going to arm wrestle me if I didn’t include it, LOL.) This ornament graces a doorway handle in our solarium. I created this little rabbit several years ago with wool felt and embellished it with silk ribbon embroidery and seed beads. The hare is popping out of a bed of flowers and the double-stacked button eyes add to its comical expression. The camera settings were f/5.6 and 1/25 second.
