A Life Less Ordinary

WW – Details on a Walk to a Viewpoint: Morning Dew

I have decided to post photos of past travels in general and our eight year sailing adventure on SV Irie in particular for Wordless Wednesdays. I hope you enjoy them.

My theme “Details” for this week comes from The Daily Post. From the moment I saw the prompt, this photo came to mind. I rarely take photos of details. Maybe I should in the future?

The walk to the lookout revealed this view (the details all blurred together :-)):

Or was it this view (where all details are pushed out of sight)? I can’t quite remember…

Do you prefer photographing landscapes, wildlife, portraits or details? Or, anything that strikes your fancy (but mostly nice views), like me?


  1. Lovely photographs!

  2. Every photograph a winner here Liesbet. I kept saying Oooh and Ahhh as I went through your post this morning. I love photographing a good landscape, but my favorite scenes to photograph are on the streets. My street photography is just better than my landscapes.

    • You are extremely good at street photography, Lisa. And, your passion about it is probably contributing to that. You really have to have an eye for that as well. I think taking a snapshot of a landscape is much easier than composing the meaningful street scenes you manage to capture with you camera. No street art on your next long leg, however…

  3. I leave most of the photographing to Scott and he takes pictures of whatever strikes his fancy. I think you should try your hand at more close-up detail photos, like your one of the mountain dew. That one’s lovely 🙂

    • Thanks, Ellen. I keep thinking one needs a fancy SLR camera with lenses to photograph details, but maybe I should just spend some time practicing with my portable camera (which is a really good one) and its settings… I am just lazy when it comes to certain things, especially when it involves manuals. 🙂

  4. I tend to go for details and quirky things. I don’t have a good enough camera for landscape and the images often disappoint (that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it 🙂 🙂 ). Love your detailed shot. Have a happy weekend, Liesbet!

    • Thanks, Jo. Your garden shots are lovely and you do have an eye for detail! It’s called talent. 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend, yourself. I hope your nice weather holds out. We have friends with twins visiting and hope to go tubing on the river.

  5. Love the detail shot! I usually like views too, and landscapes, and don’t do a lot of macro photos. But all your photos are lovely and tell a story.

    • Such a nice thing to say, Lucy, thanks. While macro shots really – literally – bring us closer to the subject, I never really think about photographing details too much. I guess I prefer to have a memory (since my photos act as my memory) of “the big picture”. 🙂

  6. It’s mostly landscapes for me Liesbet. I am trying to get more into details to give readers a better understanding of what we are seeing. These are gorgeous images and the lead photo reinforces why detail is so valuable. Just gorgeous.

    • Thanks, Sue. I might try to take more details in the future. The only time I seem to think about it these days is when photographing flowers.
