Taking a knife to a gun fight

Having a landscape lens when you come up on wildlife is like taking a knife to a gun fight. I chose a landscape lens on a river boat ride knowing full well there would be wildlife while using internal reasoning that I didn’t want to lug around heavy equipment – after all this was a leisure trip.

Guess what… yup, entering a cove there was a troop of monkeys 😂

What did I do?  What any gunfighter would I took the shots knowing I’d gone to a gunfight with a knife.

All we are is dust in the wind so count your blessings and go take more photos.

Foot-bridge over San Antonio Riverwalk-598-2This was my first visit to San Antonio Riverwalk and hopefully not the last. The visit was much like putting a kid in a candy store, only the candy was a visual treat and this kid was packing a Nikon.

Lonely sock line-391One  of the creature comforts I miss from home is laundry facilities. On the road this laundromat’s sense of humor made its way into my travel scrapbook hope this photo brings a smile to your face 🙂

Bells are UTILITIES in the maritime lifestyle

Bells are useful UTILITIES on the sea, relaying information from the wheel house to the deck and below deck.

At the entrance of the St Augustine Marina is a concrete column with 2 huge bells, this view was taken while standing beneath the bells. 

I’d gotten away from B&W because the Topaz filter crashes nearly each time I use it. Thanks to Tammy, Boomer and Steve for suggesting “Quests” be transformed into B&W I decided to continue the process. The program crashed over and over. I did find some work arounds and used previous suggestions to add detail and separation so, it will be interesting to carry on the conversation on your thoughts and suggestions!

An XFactor

Some themes in photo challenges are easy to work with, then there are those that take time and contemplation to match up with a photograph, such as XFactor. Originally I was leaning in a different direction until taking a long look at the anchor of this ship, then the XFactor jumped out at me. Do you think this is fitting?
