Team Up Thursday: Wheels

This week's challenge was chosen by Stefanie.  Here is her photograph:

“ I chose the subject wheel(s) with this toy motorbike in mind. My niece gave the boys each one of these as thank-you gifts 5 years ago.  I am really enjoying photographing things much closer than I have before.
I am also thankful that you couldn’t see me taking strain leaning backwards to get the shot with my other hand keeping the motorbike upright.  I managed to do that without falling over, in the road outside our house.”

Here is my photograph:
"With Stefanie's choice of the topic WHEELS in mind I was constantly on the look out for the perfect wheels to photograph.  While we were light painting on Saturday evening I noticed these old wagon wheels in front of the barn and asked Shayne to remind me to come back and photograph it the next day before we left for home.  A few minutes later our photography tutor suggested we light paint the wheels....and I was stunned at the result.  This photo was taken with the camera on a tripod and set at 20 second exposure.  The ISO was set to 400 and the F-stop at 8.  I love the result and the sepia colour that resulted gave the photo an old- worldly feel."

  9. PS. LYNETTE -
    The book you asked about is called, "WISDOM" by Andrew Zuckerman - pretty spendy but a fun book. You can find it on Amazon. It's wisdom from VIP people throughout the world that write expensively about what they've learned through their lives. Most of the people in the book are OVER 65 years of age!
