Another find walking around the swap meets in Quartzsite.  This is a bucket of scissors which claim to be taken from people at airport security. Look how many different ones there are!  I didn’t find mind, though.  I considered using this for “Faith” since people put a lot of faith in the fact that security measures will keep them safe… but decided that was twisting the meaning of the theme a bit too much!

As with all my photos, shot with my Canon PowerShot SD950 IS.  ISO 80; 1/400 sec f2.8; focal 7.7 mm.  (This is what is recorded… I am not yet at point of controlling  these aspects.) The only post processing was to run it through “curves in Aperture 3.0 and then to save in a size amenable to the blog.

Pelican, Daytona Beach

Still going through pics I’ve taken in the past, cropping and such to meet a theme.  Hope no one minds that I am doing this, but I’m so excited about finally being able to put these pics to good use, meaning that I can finally SHARE them.  I promise to go for a walk next week when I’m off work.  I live in a unique place, so we’ll see what I come up with then.

I took this on February 26, 2003 about 1:30 afternoon (for those that like to know what kind of light was available to me)  south of  Daytona Beach, Florida.  I believe it was found at an outdoor restaurant.  I can’t say that I was thinking the theme “arc” when I took the picture, but I did like the simplicity of the artwork.  Nice use of arcs, wouldn’t you say?

This picture would have been taken with one of our early Cannon Camera, a G2.
