Photo Blogging Challenge (July 2017): Point of View

Crap! I have 11 hours to put together this post. I have been on vacation and away from my computer so let's see if we can get this point of view started!

After fireworks, I noticed the bridge all lit up, since I had my tripod with me I decided to take a bit of a long exposure.

I was able to help some old friends out on a short film they were producing. We had planned on driving through this old railroad tunnel but a gate has recently gone up. No worries, the UAV provided the Point of View necessary.

My 12 of 12 this month was all about Point of View, down in this case.

I got a new GoPro to replace my waterlogged one. Testing it out from the pool.

And the reason I'm so late and needed the new camera: I've spent the last 10 days on Grand Cayman and under the sea. This is a still taken from a video and then edited some so it's lost some sharpness. Eels are cool! Link to the video is here, the eel shows up around the one minute mark.

No time for chit chat, I need to get this posted!

Not sure I would have wanted to come back from Grand Cayman! Your under the sea shots are awesome. I love the blue reflection of the bridge in the first one. For pulling it together at the 11th hour, you did quite well!

You always have some of the most interesting photos. I love the bridge photo and it reminds me that I need a new tripod as mine isn't do good. I need to go lighter. And the GoPro shots make me remember I want to research more. I've thought about getting one, but not sure how much I'd use it.

Okay - amazing, as usual! I am hoping to get a long-exposure bridge shot for the November "blue" theme. The dog at the edge of the pool is so whimsical and a totally unexpected POV - love it! Off to view your video with the eel.
