Scavenger Hunt Sunday



When I saw the first prompt was low-key I really have to admit
that it took me a minute to realize that low-key had something to do with
photographic lighting, of course and nothing to do with relaxing or being easy
going at least for the purpose of this hunt.

 So yes, I had to 'google' it and what I found out was that low key refers to a photographic
style that uses mostly dark tones and selective lighting which produces a high contrast image.   On one
of my walks this week I found this barrel in the shade with the sun peeking through just
enough and on only a portion of it. I think the elements of low key are here, I'm just not quite
getting the same dramatic feeling I might have gotten had the subject been a person.

1. Low-key: This is a prompt that I would love to try again.



2. The color wheel: monochromatic/analogous color

 


3. Circles: This is a wind chime that I'm sure I have walked by a million times before
but noticed it a little more because of this prompt! I think a few others noticed it too
while they wondered why on earth I was taking a picture of it! haha


4. Scarf : My dog ate it?  If you have a good imagination, it's a zebra scarf with fringe
and I just didn't get a picture of it.

 
5. Telephone: I really had no idea what I would do for this one until earlier this week
I ran into this. Although there really was no phone inside . . . Hmmm I wonder,
could it have been abandoned by Dr. Who?



Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday!

I would have loved to have taken that red phone booth shot - so few of those around here now in the UK - mostly in private collections.

Wasn't Low Key such a great challenge - I want to try it again too and you really captured the light and shadows in your shot.
