April Photography Challenge

OH Shoot Photography Group April Challenge: DOUBLE TAKE. Double Takes  Did you ever have a head snapping moment while driving or walking someplace new and you do a double take at a curiosity?  That's what we are looking for this month for our April photo challenge.  The odd but true object or something you find somewhere that just seems unusual can make for a compelling picture.  Having a smart phone always at the ready makes capturing the unexpected easier than ever .  These moments can take us by surprise and so we won't focus so much on composition but are looking for whimsey.   Keep your eyes open this month for things in unexpected places and if you can't find anything out of the ordinary, there are no rules that say you can't compose one yourself.  Have fun.
Share up to three of your weekly favorites by 1 PM each Saturday and they'll be uploaded to the April Photo Album on Facebook later that day. Please send them to sallison@minlib.net.
