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.

  1. Judi! Love this whimsical shot! Can’t help but bring a smile! Lots of Arc’s here in this shot. Great find and photo!

  2. Thanks Sheila! I’m glad past pics are o.k. because I have so many that I never get to share. I’ve creating a folder for candidates for the January themes. I’m using them as my background pics for my big 23″ screen… and I have them change every 5 minutes. If the photo draws my attention more than a few times, then I consider actually using it for the chosen theme. I think I just settled on my “looking down” — based what is up on my screen at the moment. Not only is this fun, but I’m learning new things. I just hope I can get away without further investment in the hobby :)

  3. Hey Judi –
    Sorry I haven’t been out to comment on your pictures as I’ve had a hard time just keeping up with my own group. They called me back to work and it’s been heck just trying to do what I have too!
    Love this — Tammy is right many arcs all in one without even trying. Don’t worry about using past pics as we all do that too. It’s hard trying to do everything!

  4. I’m glad you’ve jumped in and your shots from the past are fabulous. The midday light is great for this.

  5. This is great for the theme. I love the simplicity, too! You achieved such wonderful contrast on this. The pelican brings a smile as soon as I saw it. Nice job.

  6. Great subject for the Arc theme. I really like the shadows on the rope gives it the 3D look.

  7. Thanks! Well I’m off work for the next four days. I think I can finally work on some “real time” pics versus stealing more from the nearly 10,000 “old” ones. I’m excited… have been reading a photography book that I picked up last summer for even more inspiration. Thanks for letting me join in.

  8. I too love the simplicity of this art piece…and without even trying, you got several arcs… :) What a pretty contrast against that blue sky!
