A B See Photo Challenge: Q Is For Quiet Places

cameraMany thanks to Miriam Joy and Miss Alexandrina! They both suggested this theme at more or less the same time. You people are awesome. It’s hard to think of words that start with Q – either they’re boring (quilts? quadrupeds? questions?) or they’d make for terrible photos (this post could have been “Q is for Queer,” but my selfies are terrible so ha ha ha ha nope).

But “quiet places” is a lovely theme. Very easy to photograph: I took photos of spaces that made me feel quiet, thinky, introspective. To me, that feeling comes from nature or libraries. I thought the former might be more impressive, hence the lack of library photos.

All of the photos below were taken during last Friday’s trip to Turkey Run State Park, located in Indiana.


DSCN3691Subject of photo: A cliff

Location of subject: Turkey Run State Park

Techniques practiced: Nature

It’s hard to explain why I like this picture so much. I guess the rocks just seem… majestic? And angled so precariously, like they could fall into the river at any moment.

Location of subject: Turkey Run State Park

Techniques practiced: Nature, black and white

I like the combination of nature and man-made objects in this photo. Plus, it’s neat how you don’t know where the bridge is coming from or where it’s going to. Or maybe that’s just me.

Location of subject: Turkey Run State Park

Techniques practiced: Nature, black and white

I really like the shadows, reflections, and slight sparkliness in the water of this picture.

Location of subject: Turkey Run State Park

Techniques practiced: Nature, black and white

This photograph is slightly blurry and faded, but I think that only adds to its charm. Even thought it’s black and white, you get a good idea of how bright and sunny that day must have been. The tree perched at the edge of a cliff is an interesting touch, too.

I love the combination of colors here, especially the REALLY BRIGHT GREEN.

Which photo is your favorite and why?

    One of my favorite YouTube channel just uploaded an awesome video about quiet places. =) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Imfh7AIxCr4

    I like the first one, probably for the same reason you gave–the precariousness of the rock layers.

    Engie how you so good at photography these are BEAUTIFUL

    • nevillegirl says:

      *blush* Thank you! Practice makes perfect, I guess. Or closer to perfect.
      (Which one is your favorite?)

      • Bonnie says:

        Either the first one or the last one. The layers of the rock are very cool looking, plus the way that the rock looks like it could plunge into the lake at any seconds. But then the last one has such gorgeous color. I like how the sky peeks through the leaves and casts really cool shadows.

      Thanks, those were helpful comments! 🙂

    Love the variety of locations and colors in these photos! Quiet is quite the nice theme. (:

    Ahh, these make it look like you live in Fone Bone’s valley! (Or Thorn’s, really, I suppose.)

    • nevillegirl says:

      I have no idea who (what?) Fone Bone is, but you seem excited about so I guess that’s a good thing. 😛
      And I don’t live there, silly. Or even near there…

      • orphu44 says:

        Who and what, actually, since Fone Bone is both a series and a character. And most of the series takes place in this beautiful valley which is reminiscent of these photos. (It actually says in the handbook where specifically the creator based the valley off of, but the handbook isn’t handy at the moment.)
        Oops, right. Somehow I either missed that or managed to forget that between reading the post and commenting. A+ reading comprehension.

    Yeahh! *pumps fist in the air* Lovely photos.
