Holiday Story

I look down at the park line in front of me, as my eyes focus on the jumps and obstacles ahead I am suddenly more aware of my surroundings. I can hear the grinding sound of other people’s skis as they glide past me. I pause momentarily before launching myself ford down the hill I feel my stomach drop and for a moment it feels like I can fly, then as my board regains contact with the snow I line up the jump. As I take of my hand reaches out to grab the board strapped firmly to my feet in the air time seems to slow down, I can hear the whistling in my ears and the cold feeling on my face as the strong wind blows past me. I release the tight clutch of my hand on the board and steady for the landing. Just as my board hits the snow my left edge bites in and it’s as if I know what is coming but there is nothing I can do. My head thumps down hard against the icy surface and I slide motionless to the bottom of the ramp.

We were told to post one photo to our blog including the theme and a brief caption.

The theme for this week is water.

 

This week I found two photos that were in my opinion equally as good so I just used both. These photographs were actually both taken in the enviro garden with a point and shoot camera, I tried to capture the water droplets on both the leaf and rain gage. In the second photo it is all dark and stormy in the background which kind of sets the mood creating a damp and gloomy scene where as the first is bright and colorful with a happy feel

 The Maze Runner:

This year I have read many books but I think that the book the maze runner is my favorite.

it is my favorite book this year because it has a great capturing beginning and really grabs you there is a good easy storyline to folow with a lot of action which really keeps you on the edge of your seat. I think it is an extremely well rounded book that would and could entertain a very large audience.

This book was one that really stood out to me and I think that you should read it to.

The theme for this week is Movement/Motion. Here is a website for hints on what it is – http://digital-photography-school.com/a-beginners-to-capturing-motion-in-your-photography/

We were told to post one photo to our blog including the theme and a brief caption.

This is a photo I took of a sink tap at my house. I think that it shows movement because the tap is pushing out rushing water and when you take a still photo of it, it sort of blurs out the water making a block or line that cuts through your photo. It could also count for a leading line at the plug.
