Every week we select a new theme, and then go out and shoot that theme. This week the theme is Things that Start with the Letter "B". As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.


Show us stuff that starts with the Letter "B"...

Maybe we can find new things!!
:rolleyes:


Here are the rules:
1. Shots need to be taken between Monday Sunset and the following Monday by Sunset (Whenever that is for you ). Because this activity is supposed to encourage us to get out and shoot, please don't post old shots from your archives. Snapshots and art are equally welcome -- just get out & shoot, and then share!
2. Post your shots at any time during the week.
3. Post a maximum of two shots if you're uploading them to POTN (i.e., attaching them). You can post more than two if you're linking to shots that are not hosted by POTN (i.e. embedding them) but keep within POTN rules. Also keep within POTN rules about size. A copy of the size rules can be found here: IMAGE POSTING RULES
That's it! Have fun! As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.
An index to previous weeks can be found here: POTN WORLDWIDE PHOTO WEEK INDEX

That's it!
Have fun!

Black shirt, black background, blue gel, my beard and bald head. That's all the 'B' I could fit into this one picture.

Me neither. These shots were taken on the ridge above our place. Over 70 homes were destroyed there.

I included the VW just for you, it has some obvious radiant heat damage on the drivers side, but survived very well otherwise. I wanted to peek inside VW to see how the upholstery survived, but I would have had to enter the property to do that. I won't enter private property without permission. Some photographers have really upset the homeowners by entering the private property to take photos.

One "pro" from out of town was even "arranging" the fire debris to "make a more compelling composition." He's lucky he wasn't shot for looting! vmad

I'm another one of the like/don't like people.
I do have to say that some of the trees look like they were "photoshopped" in. It's a trip!

Me too. Those scenes are so sad and serious that I don't quite feel like following them with images of mine. Immediate "business as usual" seems too frivolous or something.

The "ghostly" trees are kinda freaky, aren't they? No Photoshop involved. I'm going to go back with my 100-400 and see if I can get some better shots of them.

Actually, Thanks Tim for making this real to all of us.
This is your neighborhood and people you know or know "of" I prefer your viewpoint over anything else I've seen.
You give a lot of perspective and genuine care with your photographs.

Please continue to show us ..
