The Originals

Palm I

 

 

Palm Leaf Light Shadows

 

 

Light Drenched Palm

 

 

Here are the originals for three of the artsy ones from the last post.  I didn’t like one of them anyway and the other was not an original.  I added shadow and a bit of contrast to these.   Maybe they aren’t so bad?  I dunno’.  At any rate, I am going to throw out my flash and learn to use the camera in aperture priority for Lemony.  And, yes, Michael, I will use the tripod.  I’d be willing to bet I either screw it all up or fall and break a hip trying to manipulate the tripod.  Whatcha’ bet?

You guys are all angels.  I think WP sent out a volley of sad little hearts and all of you caught ’em.  Thank you.  Every one of you!   🙂

    • Thank you, Terri. Fan palms are particularly interesting because of the way light plays on their accordion leaves. I am glad you liked them. 🙂

    • I did too. I am fascinated by fan palm leaves. I cannot tell you how I laughed at your clever posts. I spent WAY too much time reading them and the hilarious comments. I came there from Joseph’s blog. I knew that if Joseph followed you, there would be fun aplenty there! He was right! 🙂

  1. Tripods are sturdy if you get a good one. If you start to slip just grabbed tightly to the camera and snap a few images while holding on for dear life. Then you will have a great story and your hip will remain intact 🙂

      • I think we all continue to take pictures of things that fascinate us….they could be the same picture over and over…every time, it looks completely different!

    • Yes, fan palm fronds are mysterious and captivating. Often, I just walk around among them and marvel at their voices. Each is different in its own way. They all love to play with the light! 🙂

  3. I’m very fond of palms, so it’s easy to win me over with these. I’m also a big fan of the color green.
    Palm l is brilliant.

    • You and I would like the first one. Almost all of the fronds on these palms grow this way. It is a fan palm so the light is fascinating on the accordion leaves.

  4. Very pretty…I had six of those trees in my yard in Arizona for 20 some years…spent a lot of time pruning…. Beautiful photos…memories of hard work on a tall ladder. Thank you. 🙂

    • Yep, taking off one leaf on these babies creates a big pile on its own. Mine are not huge like the really tall variety of the same palm. When they get as tall as yours were, pruning is a problem! Palms are my favorite trees. I love the way the leaves are shaped and catch the light.

    • Thanks, Victor. I always look at you photographs and wonder if I ever could have taken that kind of perfect image….even when I did not have the tremor. Your photographs are classic, you know.

    I think this is the same kind of plant that I used for one of my posts of this week, you know which one I’m talking about 🙂
    Love the shadows in the second photo!

    • Yes, you reminded me. Where is my prize? 🙂 I love Fan Palms. The light plays on them in interesting ways all the time. You reminded me of these photos with your post. That’s how I got the courage to post these. Thanks, Pablo.

  6. I like all of these too. It’s your eye that is important, George (says she who knows nothing about photography, however, I am sure that it is the artist who shows us what (s)he sees.)
