A photo of a hummingbird flying in front of my feeder, right as the morning sun was coming up.
2. Process of Elimination
This is the photo I started with, I thought it was an interesting shot of an Amish horse standing by the back of a store. By process of elimination, I cut out the clutter and focused the shot on the horse's head, the rope and the window (below).
This photo is a shot of my mother's artist box, actually just as she left it. I lost my mother many years ago, but I remember her painting from this box, often creating a oil portrait of someone, or a still life. It's interesting to note that her wooden palette has a little dab of paint left over from each color that she used...which has left quite an interesting collage of hues.
A silhouette of a statue in a local park, depicting a saxophone player. Since our city was once known as the "Musical Instrument Capital of the World", many of the statues pick up on that theme.
5. Flying High
In a nearby town, the American flag was flying high above Main Street, showing the town's patriotism and love for our country.
