CAROTTE



Oui!!! C'est une carotte. Attachée à un fil mauve. "Mais que fait cette photo de carotte sur ton blog?" avez-vous le goût de me demander.... Allez, bande de petits coquins! Demandez!!!! Hheheheh! Bon. J'ai pris cette photo cet après-midi. Choisissant une carotte au hasard dans mon frigo, je l'ai attachée au bout de ce magnifique fil mauve que j'ai tenu de la main gauche et j'ai pris la photo que vous pouvez admirer ici en tenant mon Canon adoré avec la seule main qu'il me restait.... :) Mais pourquoi? POUR UN CONCOURS!!!!! JorgDotOrg PhotoHunt, pour être plus précis.... *soupir*
Cette semaine, je voulais TOUS les points bonus! Il fallait photographier un objet en mouvement. Deux points étaient enlevés s'il s'agissait d'une voiture ou de tout autre véhicule! MAIS un point de plus si la photo ne montrait aucun être humain et DEUX points de plus si le sujet était végétal ou minéral...... Enfin, DEUX points de plus étaient donnés pour un suivi (panning en anglais, ce qui signifie suivre le sujet en mouvement avec la caméra, ce qui l'immobilise tout en donnant un aspect filé à l'arrière-plan).... Et la double image de la carotte est dûe à l'utilisation d'un flash double à synchronisme lent...VOILÀ!
Je crois que je vais cesser de participer à ces concours.... Mes voisins commencent à me regarder d'un drôle d'air...
Yes!!! That's a carrot! Attached to a lavender string. "But why do you have this photo of a carrot on your blog?" are you wanting to ask me... C'mon you rascals! Ask it!!! Hheheheh! Well... I took this image this afternoon. Choosing randomly one nice carrot in my fridge, I have attached it to this wonderful mauve string, then holding my Canon with the only hand that was left (the right in fact) I took the pic. :) But WHY???!!!??? FOR A CONTEST! JorgDorOrg Photohunt...*sigh*
This week, I wanted ALL the bonus points! The theme was a thing in motion. There were 2 penalty points if it was a photo of a car, or of any other vehicule. ONE bonus point if it did'nt involve any people. And TWO bonus points if it was a vegetable or mineral. And finally, TWO more bonus points if one manage a panning shot. A panning shot involves a moving camera (following the subject). Thus the subject seems still and the background is blurry. Here, the double image of the carrot is caused by a slow flash synchronized on the second curtain. VOILÀ!!!
I think I'm gonna stop to participate to those contests. My neighbours are beginning to watch me with strange glances...

It is wonderful - I think you could have told us it is the carrot being dangled in front of us to encourage us all to keep on moving.

Olico a dit…

Avant de lire ton texte, j'imaginais déjà une drôle d'aventure à Madame Carotte...finalement, elle est bien gentille ;-)

I've done Photohunt before, it is a lot of fun. I forgot all about it, though.

Do you own a horse or are you trying to tell us something?

Caroline: LOL! I think it would take more than a carrot...Hhehehe!

Olivier: Je l'ai mangée hier... :P Ben quoi! Elle traînait sur mon comptoir....

Beware the quest for bonus points - once on the path of the Dark Side, forever will it dominate your Photo Hunt Entries...

I think this is the week of the carrot...er, that sounds bad.
Hehehe!

Jake Carrots' momma warned him if he took up with that bad bunch of veggies he would come to a sad end...
He didn't listen, but he remembered her words as the lynch mob strung him up.

Swish.... what does swish means? In French, the dictionary told me that is means froufrou...... What the hell does froufrou means? Seems like a dog's name.....
