Stuff Portrait Friday (on Saturday!)


1. Something Discarded
2. Lay down on the ground and find something ugly and make it beautiful.
3. Take a picture in the style of the person that inspires you.
#3 is wide open - meaning if you took a picture that you wouldn't have normally taken, but you thought, 'hey so-in-so would love this'. Share with us your inspirations!

Something Discarded.

This is the old highway department where my dad worked for more than 20 years. A couple of years ago the town built a new department of public works building. This one has just been sitting vacant for years!

Lay down on the ground and find something ugly and make it beautiful.

I don't know. Can you make a weed beautiful?

Take a picture in the style of the person that inspires you.

At the new highway department the town planted this tree in memory of my father. I took the picture looking up at the sky thinking that at the same time my dad (I sure hope!) is looking down at me!

This is just an added extra. It is the plaque under the tree. For obvious reasons I've deleted the last name .

take care,
Dawn

WoW. Those photos are extraordinary! Love your take on "discarded". And that dandelion photo...I'm blown away (no pun intended).
