This month's Personal Photo Challenge at Donna's blog, Cottage Days and Journeys, is movement. I scrounged though my Picasa albums for a few photos that showed movement. Mind you, I have lots of bird photos and grandson photos that are a blur and a lot of pictures that I deemed too blurry have been trashed long ago. So I managed to find a few that would class as 'movement' photos for this assignment. I should have been out taking photos which is the real idea of this meme - it is a challenge after all - but the most recent photos I've taken didn't classify (or were deleted as they were blurry!!). So here goes.
This first photo was taken on Canada Day in 2013. These buskers were playing with fire and having a ball. I like how the flames dragged though the air and one girl's back looks like it's on fire. I was using my old Canon point and shoot for this one and probably on Auto or Sport Mode.
This second photo was taken in July of 2012. The farmer was 'making hay' that hot summer afternoon and I decided to capture the action. You can see the bale of hay flying into the wagon and all the dust and chaff blowing off it. Again, this was with my old Canon.
This third photo was taken on July 6, 2014 through the kitchen window. The swallow parent was feeding one of the babies on our deck railing. It was taken with my Nikon D5200 on the Sport Mode so I could capture the motion quickly. I love how I caught the wings spanned out.
