Dubai’s

Burj Khalifa Tower…

…and a view of downtown Dubai from the 

Observation Deck on the 148th floor (555 m or 1,821 ft).

This was the highest observation deck in the world

on October 15, 2014, until the

Shanghai Tower opened in June 2016.

 

Notre Dame in Paris.

Eiffel Tower, Paris.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Meme-Worthy-Photos

~~~~~~

~~~~~

meme

an image, video, piece of text, etc., typically humorous in nature,
that is copied and spread rapidly by Internet users,
often with slight variations.

The following are my meme worthy photos…I  think.

I think because I am not too sure what constitutes a meme


In my opinion both these photos are ideal

because there is enough space to add text

and still have an interesting photo to go with it. 

The following are all my own photos.

Are these memes?

Could they be memes?

Carnations and  Mother’s Day.

Some tiny carnations in our garden

make an ideal background for

a Mother’s Day greeting.

In this instance white text also helps.

 

I didn’t realise how dull last year’s Christmas greeting was until now.

My 2015 Christmas, much brighter and happier.

 

A November blue sky creates an ideal and

ample area to add a message.

An attractive but since deceased Camellia.

a fellow travellers ‘test drive’.

It think price was the major consideration.

I had intended to rush out and

take some fresh shots this morning.

But wind and showers dictated otherwise.

So, my landscape shot is the

Million Dollar View in Banff, Canada. 

Foreground to background is reasonably sharp

but by no means perfect. 

A higher f/stop would have produced a better result.

Camera settings:

Focal length: 18mm/27 (equivalent in 35 mm film)

f/stop: 6

Exposure 1/320

ISO: 400

This shot was aimed at getting a large DoF….

from the fence a far back as possible.

The fence and first two trees are okay, however,

there is some softness creeping in with the third tree

and the stump behind it.

Compare distance between each of these objects

with distances in the following photos.

Camera settings:

Focal length: 50mm/75 (equivalent in 35 mm film)

f/stop: 22

Exposure 1/640

ISO: 1600

 

 

Last weekend I did capture our

Queen Mum Agapanthus…

…some shallow Depth of Field.

I like this shot as the bee and the petal/stamen

it is standing on are in focus

while everything else is soft

in varying degrees.

Camera settings:

Focal length: 75mm/112 (equivalent in 35 mm film)

f/stop: 8

Exposure 1/640

ISO 160

 

This cropped version supports my above comments.

Two unexpexted winds during last year’s travels.

First up we a an unexpected view through

the covered wagon prior to ride out for a barbeque meal. 

A few months later our Matamata

Bed and Breakfast,

in New Zealand provided us with

this gorgeous view above our bed.
