    Air: it is all around us. Effects our day to day life. The trees, airplanes, we breathe. It is a basic element, but can have SO many meanings.

    This time around, we are looking for photographs which shows "Air" Be creative. Find simplicity in the shoot or complexity.

    Collective Shoot will Run from Saturday August 30th through Friday September 5th

    Please make sure the pictures are FRESH. Shot during the posted dates. If you have something you have shot in the past, your dying to share. Please do. But the point of the "Collective Shoot" is for everyone to post pictures taken during the posted dates.

    Tough, but with the right approach, I can see limitless possibilities.

    I look forward to seeing what you come up with. :wink:


    So was I, which was my inspiration for the theme, I guess. Possible we have the same idea. lol

  10. Hi Tamara -

    Had her owner either had time to cut the grass today, or had he been quicker on the shutter, I'm confident that Sophie would have been photographed with all four legs (and both ears) getting "air time" . . . lol.

    Thanks for hosting this CS,

    Eric

    Tim,

    Where did you take the "storm in the air" shot? Was the wind moving the tree like that, or did you move the camera? The air conditioner looks good in b/w.
     
  15. Love this shot! :cool: 
     
  16. I shot this yesterday afternoon, standing in West Sayville, NY looking across the Great South Bay to the Fire Island Lighthouse, 9.5 miles away as the crow flies (according to Google Earth). I love the atmospheric distortion provided by such distance, even on a beautiful and clear day.

    Awesome



    Like the last shot the most...really nice!!! It always amazes me that they don't manage to set the balloon on fire while they are filling it (first shot)

    Caught this little Hummingbird on our Zinnias just a few moments ago... There were two flitting around, fussing over feeding rights.
