Animate Or Inanimate?....That Is The Question


If you haven't noticed, I am attracted to inanimate objects 
when I am out and about with camera in hand.


Case in point is this series of granite rocks 
which were at Peggy's Cove (click) this past weekend.


These particular rocks were sitting in a 'tidal pool' 
up on the massive rocks that line this coastal area.


The unusual shapes, their location, their reflection in the water
all come together in my mind's eye as very soothing and tranquil.


All of these photos are SOOC.....straight out of camera.
No need to enhance them through editing.


They are exactly as I saw them on that bright and sunny afternoon 
along the South Shore of Nova Scotia.


I have always preferred to take photos of objects rather than 'people photos'.


I have to remind myself to put people in my photos.
Some people have a knack taking photos of people.
Not me.


Objects stay where they are and don't move around!! lol


This also encourages me to stay in the moment and really focus on what I am seeing.


I think a psychologist could have a 'field day' with this!

  2. I agree with She Who Seeks... I love your photos. After all, rocks were here before we were... They look like sleeping giants of the deep and they make excellent subjects. (Don't mind me - I just woke up) ;-)

  7. I have always liked how you focus on the varying perspectives of a single object. I find it very soothing.

    1. I think that is probably why I tend to do this Barb. It can be very hectic, for the writer and the reader, trying to do too much in a post. Keeping it simple has its benefits for both.
