The Opportunist

I was cooling my heels outside a store while my friend shopped. Not wanting to stray too far while waiting, I explored the immediate surroundings with my camera and that’s when I noticed this little gem that I wouldn’t have seen otherwise. I love the way the vine has snaked it’s way through the rusted flagpole bracket. I took a moment to make three exposures, and right on time, out she came.

Photographers recently had the opportunity to visit the historic Glensheen Mansion in Duluth for a photo meet.  The mansion was decorated with twenty-five Christmas trees, twenty-five hidden elves and much more Holiday trim.  As much as all the bright lights and ornaments were appealing, I found a display cabinet with these serving pieces on exhibit just as interesting.  I chose to isolate focus on the cup design and let the other objects serve as the framing.

More of my images from Glensheen can be seen on my Northern Visions blog.

I have a hard time taking travel photos that would actually show the place. I end up taking lots of photos like this one, of details. So let it be, a photo from my vacation in Tartu, Estonia. A beautiful brick wall that I felt had to be photographed.
