Best of the 365 Blog – March 2018

Other than spring break, March was a sparse month for photography. Rather than publish an excessive number of bad snapshots, I’m going with five photos rather than the usual eight.

I’m using this photo of the leftovers from a traffic mishap to teach students about visual storytelling and how to read an image.

As bad as the rest of the month was, our trip to Pratt, Kan., was a visual goldmine. I took dozens of photos at the Pratt County Historical Museum, including this shot of my favorite exhibit: the toaster collection.

The next day we drove to Greensburg to visit the Big Well. This is an HDR shot from the bottom looking up.

On the other hand, this is what most of March was like. It’s a somewhat interesting pattern of mulch bags, but it doesn’t amount to much more than a quick picture taken while I was out running errands. It meets the one-photo-per-day requirement but not much more.

Dramatic lighting and macro focus make this small bear from my bookshelf look quite menacing.
