Trio – Weekly Photo Challenge

“Three things cannot long be hidden, the sun, the moon and the truth.”

Buddha

THREE SPROUTS

I’ve chosen to respond to this week’s TRIO challenge with an image from a photo shoot this month with visiting professionals Arnie Zann and Margo Pinkerton.Β  Arnie and Margo challenged us to “find the light” as well as our own vision. Following their presentation, we spent a few hours on a friend’s beautiful riverfront property to see where our lenses would lead us. Happily, several of my shots did feature trios πŸ˜„. Mother Nature gifted us with a glorious evening, during which I also created the shots shown below.

BLACK AND BLUE
BLACK AND BLUE – THREE LIMBS

“Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.”

William Shakespeare

Professional photographers can help us to improve our technique; we can buy more and better equipment; we can even learn to “see” what others may not. What we choose to do with what we see, ah, now there’s where true creativity comes in.

WAVES OF COLOR
WAVES – THREE COLORS

“Survival can be summed up in three words -never give up.”

Bear Grylis

Arnie and Margo have an interesting feature in their lectures called Same Place/Different View. Each of them will photograph the same exact scene – yet their shots look nothing alike. They challenged the photographers in our group to visit the same place at the same time, yet make images that were ours alone. Interestingly, we succeeded admirably in the uniqueness of our images.

“Simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.”

Lao Tzu

If I’d found THREE lines in the mud flats shot above, it would have fit perfectly with the theme. Unfortunately, there are only two. So the photo above, and those that follow, are simply favorites from the shoot. Enjoy!

TWILIGHT SCALLOP

“Three things in life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.”

Henry James

“To succeed in life you need three things; a wishbone, a backbone, and a funny bone.”

Reba McEntire

I’ve chosen to close with the photograph above because I love what it represents. It’s was a beautiful evening with an amazing red sky. The light was very nearly gone – we could barely see to shoot. Yet there was a fellow photographer still working the scene, “capturing the light” (what little there was). And there I was behind her, capturing the moment. What could be better than that?!

  1. Wonderful post Tina…It is true that looks like a miracle when 20 people look at one thing and nobody sees the same thing…May be because of that is so difficult sometimes to understand each other? Have a great weekend!

  2. An incredible set of “trios” Tina ~ the WAVES perhaps capturing it best for me, although the three sprouts along with the Buddhist quote almost stole the show πŸ™‚ It must have been fun to have been shooting with this group – the property sure looks like it is situated just about perfectly for photography. Wish you a great week.
