Weekly photo challenge: Lost in the details

This particular object is definitely lost in the details. It is a fountain formed entirely of shells. All different types of shells, of many types and forms. Yes, there are details galore.This particular fountain is tucked away in a corner of a huge park called “Parc de Sceaux” in the South Paris suburbs.

  1. First of all, Thank you for the link about shooting in ‘auto ‘ …I’ve had the camera for years but still resort to auto when I’m worried I’m just not getting what I want in other settings. And by other settings I mean the pre-set ones. LOL. I still ain’t brave enough, period.
    And this little fountain is just adorable. Wow did you get the details….and wow what a creative mind it was that pieced this one together with great intent!

    1. Hey there Mel,
      You are very welcome for the link. It’s all learning & what & how we do it is up to each of us.You know what is best for you.
      I had a few ideas for this challenge but this fountain won! A celebration of creativity!!
      xox

  2. WOW Barb…what an AWESOME capture!!!!

    That fountain is stunning! The colors are amazing! And I love how you caught the water so beautifully coming from the opening. It’s absolutely perfect because you can see the movement of the water, and yet it’s razor sharp!

    BRAVA!

    Also, I love the ‘soft focus’ on the second image. It looks dreamy!

    Have a terrific week, my friend!

    X to you and D!

    1. Hi there Ronnie,
      Thank you very much, babe. The colors are actually from the “boost” feature; they have been intensified a bit. This is a basic feature in most post-editing programs.
      I love working with water, to “stop” the movement. Water is so fun to photograph.
      You are very welcome! xox

    1. Hi Joycelyn,
      Thank you my dear.
      You should have a fountain to make wishes on. The sound of water is such a beautiful thing. Like falling asleep with the rain falling on the roof. Have a peaceful Monday.

  3. I don’t know if it is my computer , or wordpress , being annoying …. anyway … I hope you are well ,… keep shooting 🙂 xoxx

    1. Hi Anne,

      xoxo

  4. Hi Bijoux,
    I hope that you have had a good week so far. Thank you for your visit.
    I have to take off my hat to whoever did this work. What patience… Shells are nature’s gifts. My Mom used to work in a gift shop that featured LOTS of shells. We had tons at home!
    Cheers 🙂

  5. Beautiful! Btw. I love the new look of your blog. I know it’s been there for a while, but it’s really nice and sleek and flattering to all your lovely photos:)

    1. Hi Mitzie,
      It’s nice to see you. Thank you; I wanted to do a very quiet template change. This one is like a photo album. Thank you for your kind words. Spring is coming and I am gearing up for Spring day trips. Yay!! You take care and be well.
