May 23 and 24 Photography Challenge


On day two of the photography challenge we were asked to take a photo of technology. It didn’t specify new or old. While walking our dog Annika, I spotted this old irrigation system. At one time, it was modern technology, but now very old, rusty and unused.
Today the topic for the challenge is something new. I took the photo below of new growth on an old tree. New dioesn’t always mean an article of clothing, or a car. In this case I chose to photograph new life.

Photography Field Trip to Dana Point Harbor

Boat2
Last week my photography class took a field trip to Dana Point Harbor. The class was scheduled to meet at 12:00, but I arrived early so I could enjoy a little extra time. The instructor had suggested we wear jackets because it was forecasted to be in the 60s, but it turned out to be t-shirt weather, with a gentle breeze perfect for sailing.

Westwind Sailing has been part of the Harbor for many years and here you see a class out for a lesson. Their boats are easily spotted with their bright yellow sails.

Coincidentally, I’d been to Dana Point the night before, to meet friends for dinner and a walk around the harbor. I hadn’t been to Dana Point since the Christmas boat parade, and suddenly I was there two days in a row.
