A minor detail – Week 33 of 52 week photo project

Welcome to this week’s wrap-up post for Week 33 of our 52 Week Photo Project

The theme for Week 33: Detail

A detail – I have to confess that I had no idea what I was going to photograph this week, and I left it until the last minute to submit my photo.

This is very unlike me but I was completely unsure of how to tackle this theme.  I had no backups, nothing for my brains trust to help me choose from and absolutely no ideas!!

I looked up ‘detail’ in the photography sense on the internet and it just sounded like I could use anything (within reason).  I am so used to noticing and observing things to photograph that I couldn’t see the ‘detail’ in anything.  I had drawn a complete blank.

I had my mentors talking to me and making suggestions and I came up with this:

Tumbafest Duck Race at Tumbarumba

Tumbafest Duck Race

A favourite detail of Tumbafest every year is the Duck Race.

This little red duck stood out as an extra special detail for me.

In the end I went with his photo of the Duck Race at Tumbafest – I wasn’t too enthralled with the photo itself, but the lone little red duck stood out amongst the others – and I decided it was a suitable detail to use this week. He also seems to be going the wrong and wasn’t in any position to win the race – just like how I was feeling!

Phew!! Crisis averted 🙂

Photos from the group

The photos from the group were all very different this week, which just shows the diversity within the group. Feel free to follow the link above to check them out for yourself. Maybe leave a comment if one of the photos particularly takes your fancy.  Commenting/sharing is caring and we always appreciate your thoughts 🙂

Daniel featured a chilly Tasmanian morning in the dying days of summer. Stunning!!

Grant’s photo captured the detail on a hillside and the intriguing sky above. It’s a lovely shot!

Melanie’s photo showed us the cold snap she’s experiencing in England with some icy stalactites. Looks so cold!

Sharon admits to having a happy accident when the shot she was trying to get didn’t work out.  As she was dismantling things she noticed the detail right in front of her. She’s clever that way!!

Tim’s photo shows the eyes of a lotus flower which he insists follow you as move around the room! They actually do seem to follow you.

You can read more about the story behind the project here: 52 week photography project  – but basically I have joined with 5 photographers, of varying experience, to take a photo every week for a year, one theme at a time. That’s 52 weeks of photos!

Details matter, it’s worth waiting to get it right – Steve Jobs

With each photo we also submit some accompanying words, which can be just as interesting as the photo itself some weeks!

How did you like our interpretations this week? Let me know in a comment below, I always appreciate hearing from you.

We’re getting through the 52 weeks at a cracking pace – it’s March already!!

Next week’s theme is: At night

Enjoy your week ahead

    At first I didn’t even see the little red duck, Debbie! I am going to the optometrist on Tuesday thank goodness LOL:) this would be a perfect photo for a post about being unique and not running with the pack. xx

      I’m so glad you’re going to the optometrist Sue! I must admit he was a little detail but I’m glad I spotted him doing his own thing out there 🙂 I agree, it would be perfect for just such a post – feel free to use it if you’re ever planning such a post!

    Since he’s the only one, I wondered if the red duck had a special purpose. Then I wondered if he was lonely being the only one. Then I decided that I had better stop wondering.

      Haha! You sound like me – thinking and wondering far too much!! I just know he was the only red duck and saved my photography credibility 😊

    That ‘little red duck’ definitely makes the whole photograph. Great choice!

    The red duck stands out like a sore thumb! And this time it’s not a bad thing! Have you heard that phrase before? – stand/stick out like a sore thumb 🙂 Sharing your post ♥

      Yes we use that saying too. Once you see the red duck it stands out quite clearly! Thanks so much for sharing 😊
