I am happy to be back again to Roger's Creative photo contest. I am always happy to try to find a memory to share. This week, I offer a sunset view of Hyannis Harbor on Cape Cod. The sky is beautiful, the slight moisture rolling in from Nantucket Sound offers pastel ribbons unfurling against the azure early evening sky.
In itself, it is a nice shot. The 25 degree slope is often a function of my taking a photo in a wheelchair sans tripod or monopod. I have to balance the camera in that position where I am safely positioned in the wheelchair yet trying to steady the device and using the viewfinder and pushing the shutter. It isn't always easy to use the LCD display, but I always used the viewfinder in my K1000 and walking days.
Often this is what I end up with. But if anything, the odd shot can be intriguing, perhaps offer a more unusual perspective. At the moment, I see the view of a really hot takeoff from the port side of a Boeing 757. Or whatever. I'll keep taking images without thought beforehand and figure it all out later. Just don't let the shot get away...
Thanks Roger and judges!
