Weekly Photo Challenge: Free Spirit

31 Aug

This week the Weekly Photo Challenge: Free Spirit is guest hosted by Strauss Louw.  Sometimes it is necessary to overexpose a frame slightly and point the lens to the sun for a bit of glare to capture that sense of a different, free, moving reality, says Strauss.  I know this now but not when I captured this picture at the South Street Seaport recently – free spirit!

    I could not do that! My hat goes off to those that risk this sort of thing. They certainly have some free spirit in them.
    Thanks for popping by my post for this week’s challenge.

    I love that different spirits enjoy different kinds of freedom. Nicely expressed :)

      I couldn’t even try doing that and captured it in awe of the young girl who looked so cool and collected as she went about readying herself – yes, as you say, different spirits enjoy different kinds of freedom. Thank you.

    Oh cool. Indeed a free spirit! Flight (or a semblance of it for a precious few seconds) has always been a big dream of mine, but this takes nerves of steel! Great take on the challenge. I feel like I was living the free spirit vicariously through your subject.

      Iris, I’m glad that you were the free spirit as you watched her soar above…I am not so courageous either.
