Phriday Phun in Phall

I recall that Scott over at 'Just Used Pixels' used to post just-pher-phun shots on Phridays up until some time ago. I'm not sure if he's giving the concept a rest for a while, but I hadn't participated in several months. Today while I was having fun meandering out back with the photographic arsenal and Sasha in tow, that thought struck me. So, in addition to the pleasure of capturing some more seasonal images, I decided to create a few pher-phun shots. Hope you enjoy them too.

(all shots made with a 18-55mm lens at f22, shutter speed of 1/4 or 1/5 sec and ISO100)

Autumn all phunked out, awesome idea Rick. You're so full of good ideas, can I borrow a few? lol

I reread and that "phunked" almost looks nasty, what the heck, it's Phriday.

Enjoy your weekend Rick, if you by chance get bored let me know, I'll fire some reading off to you and you can write me up some Cliff's notes, we'll naturally change the name to Rick's notes. ;-)

Interesting photos!

Saz said...

Wow Rick, those are some great shots! I especially love the third one!

I'm not sure if you're going to get to my blog any time soon, with your internet being silly, so I'll share the news with you.

I'm taking the plunge! I've ordered a Canon EOS 1100D that comes with a 18-55mm lens, then I ordered a second lens, 75-300mm, and mum and dad are getting me the bag in exchange for my old camera. (:

I'm so excited! Haha. I may have to wait a couple of weeks for it to arrive though. And I'm paying for it weekly too, so it's not all at once payment, which makes it better for me. (:

Have a great rest of your weekend.

LOL - thanks Dawn !

Thanks Ruth - I sure did.

Ha ha - I think you invented a new word, Darlene ! Yep - haven't had phun with photography like this in a while - kinda like fall bursting forth all over. I doubt I could help with those essays though - you're the master ! Have a great week.

Ha ha, dank je wel, Riet. Ja, ik heb een zeer vrolijke tijd gehad ;-)

Rick said...

Thanks Farmchick (the processing was all in-camera) !

It sure is, Chas - just exploding around us !

Thank you, Soraia.

Merci Marty. Oui, it was a lot of fun - I'm sure you would excel aussi. I think I'll be over for a visit tonight - my internet isn't fixed yet, but is working at almost half speed ;-) I shall send you bisous but not over my internet connection ! ;-)

Rick you really are inspiring with the new things you try. I tried panning this summer and got a cool effect. Now this is something different still I will have to try. Thanks for always inspiring me.
