fly {163/365}

It’s day seven of Creativity Boot Camp and the prompt for today is ‘fly’.

Numerous thoughts and plans, but Mother Nature refused to cooperate with me.  It’s been pouring rain all day.

That, and I doubt my dog could jump her chubby self high enough in the air to catch a frisbee.

And we don’t own a trampoline, so that was out too.

So I went back to tossing things in the air


Thankfully, my daughter was around today to help me out with this one.  She excels at umbrella tossing :)

This is actually two shots stitched together, with a texture layer thrown on top to add at least a bit of something to the otherwise blank sky.

And apparently, I only own black accessories.

      Thanks Kim! It’s one shot of the umbrella, and one shot of my hand. I used my fun little cheapy fisheye lens to get the distance :)

    I too was having a tough day with fly. A gray dreary day with no bird or bumblebee in sight. I plodded on trying to “make it work”. This umbrella idea is fab. I never thought of tossing things into the air. Doesn’t it seem so obvious when someone else comes up with the idea?
    I love the picture.
