“Today you are invited to post a portrait and landscape format of the same scene. You may be surprised at how much different they look and what each one reveals. That’s the only requirement for this challenge.” – Paula at Lost in Translation
Here are my portrait and landscape of the same scene at Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba, Spain.
Paula at “Lost in Translation” posts a question this week: “Have you found beauty this spring? If so, please share it for this Thursday Special themed VERNAL.
Spring is my favorite season. At the end of winter, I started pruning the roses, trimming other plants, or planting new bulbs. Currently I have forty some rose bushes. When I started planting roses, I almost got all red color. As years go by, I fell in love with other colors. So I have quite a few varieties of roses with yellow, salmon, pink, lavender, and lilac colors.
Daily prompt: Pink
Paula Borkovic “Lost in Translation” at https://bopaula.wordpress.com hosts a THURSDAY’S SPECIAL
For this week, it is a PICK A WORD IN MAY – Y2. Here is the word list:
Confined, Jazzy, Patulous (as in overgrown), Momentous (as in life-changing), and Serene (as in serenissima)
I picked the word Patulous as in overgrown. One neighbor has grown some Morning Glory years ago. The flowers are very pretty. It is a vine that crawls wherever it has a little space. After a few years, their slope in the backyard is covered with Morning Glory. The vine also goes over to several neighborhoods. I have special plants on my slope, so I always guard it for coming to my slope.
I discovered another lovely blog today – Paula’s “Lost In Translation” blog. She has a Thursday’s Special challenge. The theme for his week is Section.
SECTION – segment, part, component, or in terms of photography a crop of a larger view. Have you ever taken a photo of something and then cropped it to add interest, to improve composition or to zoom in on something? – Paula
We went on the afternoon walk around Laguna Lake a few days ago. A pleasant surprise came before my sight. A mama duck was floating in the water with seven ducklings. The ducklings tend to stay very close to each other as well as trailing the mama duck. These were the youngest ducklings I’ve seen in the lake. In this post, I include two sets photos – two originals and two cropped photos of close-up on the ducklings.
