Here’s my entry for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Hot and/or Cold. I chose two photos for this challenge that, in my eyes, combine the concepts of hot and cold. This is Lake Ontario in late spring, when the last of the snow banks are finally melting and SUNY Oswego students are rejoicing because [for the most part] they don’t have to worry about snow or whiteouts anymore until next winter, and the temperatures are a generous amount above zero for the first time since November. So, maybe think of Katy Perry’s, “Hot N Cold” when you think of Oswego. 😀
Here’s my entry for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Isolated Subjects. The top image (which I’ll call Fallen Flower) I took today, in my hometown as part of my most recent obsession with floral photography. The middle image (A Surviving Leaf) was taken in the fall of 2015 as part of a landscape photography course I took at SUNY Oswego, which is right on Lake Ontario. Oswego experiences every kind of lake-effect weather, during the year, but the extremely strong wind is something that we are known for year-round. The bottom photo (A Passing Plane) was taken on my trip to Boston in the spring of 2015 on a day that saw not one ray of sunshine.
