Weekly Winners: August 24-30

I took these photos while I was out and about…

We had a lot of rain because of remnants of Hurricane Fay. When I was sitting in my car at lunch on Monday, I noticed the rain on the windows looked a bit like some of Claude Monet’s paintings. (A hat tip to my husband who, when he saw the photo, said “That looks like a Monet!” I just knew it looked like some famous painter-dude’s style.)

I took this shot out the front windshield on Tuesday while driving home from work. (I was completely stopped, not to worry.)

This photo was taken less than 45 minutes later, as I was leaving the gym.

On Thursday at work, I noticed the “stained-glass” effect the sun had shining through some cool plastic chairs. I didn’t have time to photograph it then, but I did take 5 minutes to do so on Friday. This shot is out of focus, because I didn’t realize the camera was still set to manual focus. But I like it much better than the next frame, which is in focus. (If you’re interested in what the next shot looks like, you can see it here.)

    I LOVE the Claude Monet looking one. He is one of my favorite artists!!! I think you should frame that one! You have a good eye ๐Ÿ™‚

    I really enjoy your blog. I can’t remember how I found it now…but I’ve been reading for a while. I’m a huge photography buff and I always find fun stuff here.

    I like the blurred focus of the stained glass better than the focused one too.

    But my favorite is the first one. You need to have that matted and framed. No question.
