Photo Blogging Challenge (July 2017) - Perspective - Timothy


Tim once again had great pictures for this month's theme.  Here is his guest post.
 
A peach and herb covered chop with a garden-fresh cucumber and potato salad lies awaiting my attention.  I took the photo to taunt my brother-in-law who is a devotee of my lovely bride’s culinary skills.  Point of view: “Git in my belly!”  

This next shot is from the perspective of our scare-crow looking over the vegetable garden.  The term “scare-crow” is a bit of a misnomer, though.  We have pictures of birds from the size of wrens to hawks sitting contemptuously on his hat.

We have been trying to simplify the gardening process over the years.  This season Donna suggested the use of annual rye-grass as a weed block and end of season cover-crop.  Awesomeness ensued!  A tenth of an acre of corn, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, and carrots are progressing wonderfully.  Fifteen minutes of mowing beats hours of weeding.    

This is my point of view of the garden.  Love that annual rye-grass and the subsequent saved time for more important activities.  

I missed the different lenses and cameras challenge last month.  I intended to connect the Canon 7D to my 6” Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope.  So, this month I took a shot of the waxing gibbous moon with that same set-up.  The terminator line where day meets night often offers some interesting features.  Here is an unique profile perspective of a lunar crater.  The upper-left corner of the shot shows the curled edge of the debris from impact which formed the rim.   

These two fawns recently visited and seemed to have different points of view on which way to head for a tasty snack before the next feeding time with mom.

    1. Thanks, Tamara. I wanted to comment on your post, but I ran into technical difficulties. The reflections in your bus photo added an interesting take on the perspective theme. Only the adults are visible, including the bus driver. The kids are already out of sight starting their adventure.

  3. Great ideas for this month's topic! Anything to cut down on garden work is awesome in my point of view! I have 20 quarts of corn in the freezer for winter! Love the telescope lens shot. And the deer are always adorable.....destructive, but adorable.
