GAME - ABCD
« on: October 19, 2014, 10:37:49 AM »
All of us have been taught the English alphabet in the form of A for Apple, B for Ball etc etc or something similar...lets do it now photography style!

Here's how the game works -

I start the game by posting a photo with a title or subject that starts with the alphabet "A" (in this case its "abyss" and then add a line to say "A for Abyss".

The person posting the next photograph needs to post a photo with a title or a subject that starts with the next alphabet. In this case its "B" so he posts a photo that (for example) has a title called "Blue suede shoes". So he writes there "B for Blue suede shoes". (Blue suede shoes is just an example..you choose any title that starts with B)

The next person then has to post a photo with a title / subject that starts with "C"...the one after that has to be with D etc etc etc..

Lets see how soon we reach "Z".


Rules

Its a fun game so there are no winners
Post photos which have been taken by you and not photos from the internet
Post only 1 photo in each reply
If you've got more than one pic for a particular title then post the best one only.
If you've posted a pic then please wait and give others a chance to post the next one. You may have photos from A to Z but dont spam the thread ;)


Give some details about the photo :  - this will add value to your post and help viewers understand the photo better
Where was the pic taken
Any particular reason why you took the pic
Some details about the title
Lens, Camera etc

A for Abyss



Shot at lonavala...at the edge of a deep valley in the evening just before sunset.

I wanted a photo with the sun as a star-burst...something that looks like "assassins creed" ..what i found difficult was to get 3 things in the same shot - starburst + subject as a silhouette + some details in the foreground so that the rocks look good.

I remember spotting a snake that passed by next to me ...when i sat down on the rocks to shoot this pic...walking back to the car some locals who spotted the snake were trying to kill it by throwing stones....i told them not to..the snake managed to escape..

Shot this at Kaas during our trip. Had envisioned it as a BW while shooting and hence was pretty happy with the result.

G - Giraffes (Taken at the Giraffe Feeding Terrace at Bangkok Safari World). Visitors can buy a bucket load of bananas and feed these guys using a wooden skewer. The proximity to these animals is pretty close. (Nikon D7000 + Tamron 17-50mm)
