Here is another from a few weeks back, but a little less usual than my regular endeavors. It is ok in color, but I prefer the tonal effects in monochrome.What do you see here….besides the tree stump?
Have a great weekend everyone. 🙂
I see a submerged tree stump.
Well you didn’t tell us it was a 2-part answer! Now I gotta go back and look again…..
Ah……it’s a turtle 🙂
I’m not usually a fan of b&w but this one caught my eye
Thanks, Lyle. I was going for a striking contrast.
That’s very interesting, Steve. I think it might be a scarecrow lying on its back in the water. Probably trying to scare off those pesky Canada Geese!
That’s a pretty imaginative interpretation and I like it. Thanks, Karen.
It’s a pirogue filled with sugar cane stalks being pulled by alligators.
Cool! I never would have thought of a pirogue….but I only just learned what that is when I Googled it. I like the idea of a team of crocs hauling cargo, Linda.
Over on the bayou, even Papa Noel arrives in a pirogue pulled by gators.
The snout of a croc festooned with a goofy hat.
This is turning out better than I expected. The goofy hat is a good visual, Jim.
Looks like a turtle but I have to be honest. Everything looks fuzzy so I assume that is how you wanted the pic to appear. The rest of it looks like tree roots that are partially submerged but I can not tell what the thinghy is that is next to the turtle. A tree stump perhaps- not sure.
It’s all part of the stump, even the turtle, Yvonne. The fuzzy is water movement.

I don’t see no turtle! Anyway … hide-n-seek aside … this is a really nice shot Steve. And I do agree that the desaturation works very nicely indeed. I assume the exposure what somewhat lengthy, and that’s why the trees in the back are blurred … if this is so, why weren’t the tufts of grass moving as well? Nice, nice shot. D
The upper part of the left most root seems turtlish, David. Actually the exposure was not long….less than a second which is why the grass Isn’t blurred. I waited for the light breeze to let up but there was enough residual motion for the water to be blurry. It’s all a reflection in the background. Thanks.
Hi Steve – I see a partially submerged tree trunk with under water root system, a large bullfrog in front of a turtle. Can’t make out other objects. Are you going to enlighten us?
I didn’t see the bullfrog, Faith. Yes, I will say what I saw, but after a little while. 🙂
I can see a wooden octopus swimming around.
Yes, that is one of the things I was seeing, along with the turtle. One more to go.
Oh, Ben beat me to the octopus! My first thought (my bleary early morning eyes) thought underwater fireworks shooting off. This is a wonderful black and white shot.
Thanks, Melissa. Underwater fireworks. Now that is a unique vision.
Well, aside from the turtle and octopus, I also see a person in the tub, albeit with a few extra limbs. Possibly even Beaker, although that idea was shot down pretty quickly elsewhere. 🙂
Love your use of black & white photography…the photo is quite exceptional.
Thanks, Charlie. I was hoping it would have a striking quality.
