Friday Shoot-Out: Wrought Iron

I always say that the topic for FSO is a great idea.  I guess because I always learn something and enjoy all the varieties of topics!  In order to stop being redundant, I guess it makes more sense to just say what I like about each particular assignment.  What I liked about this one, wrought iron, suggested by Jarielyn from writeplacewritechick, is that wrought iron has such beautiful designs.  That is why I wish I had spent more time on this assignment.  As I was driving home from work, I noticed so many wonderful wrought iron designs!  But, I just ran out of time.  For the pictures I did take, I played around with color a little bit.  I had fun doing it.  As an inexperienced photographer, I like to play around to try to get a feel for it.  I'm basically just trying to have fun with the whole experience.  FSO has really helped me have fun in this way, which is one of the reasons I love it! 
I think I'll end with a haiku--just for the fun of it!

wrought iron heart
twisted, curved, bent in the fire.
it shall not move.

  1. Great job SOL. I was so distracted this week since computer troubles I did not put much time in the assignment either. I am the loser. I have learned so much. Got a long way to go.

  4. "...it shall not move"

    Ah, but it moved me, SOL. Great shoot out!

    Like you one of the things the theme has taught me is how to look at the everyday things around in new and interesting ways.

  7. I really liked the close ups! Something so simple takes on a very different look up close.

  8. The black and white approach is wonderful and the haiku highlights (hai-lights?) the whole piece beautifully.

    Hmmm...I can't fiture why sometimes my avatar turns into a red X?
