WP Photo Challenge: Depth (of Field)

For this weeks WP Challenge Depth, I decided to do Depth of Field (DOF).  Wikipedia has a lot of information on DOF (Wikipedia DOF) 

How I understand DOF is when a particular part of the photo is in focus but the rested is out of focus or blurry.

Here are a few shots that I took today to show Depth of Field (DOF).

Our Blizzard

For the past couple of days the news stations predicted that we would get 6-12 inches of snow.  Well needless to say they were incorrect.

Here is a picture from balcony showing the snow drift.

That Little Red Truck

On my ride yesterday in Hammonton NJ I saw this run down red truck.  This truck has not have moved for years.  I have passed it many times but never paid any attention to it.

Its funny what you see when you finally decide to look!

After I left I realized that I did not get any good pictures of the tree coming thru the floor of the truck.

WP Photo Challenge: Express Yourself

WordPress Photo Challenge: “Express yourself”

I do not take selfies so the best way that I can express myself for this challenge is to post more pictures of what I like.

As the title of my blog Reflections for MY Soul, each picture represents me so I am expressing myself through the things that I see.

The Ferris Wheel of Clementon Park and Splash World.  Lately I have wanted to take a picture of the Ferris Wheel.  When the park re-opens in the spring I will be getting a night shot with the Ferris Wheel all lit up.

WP Photo Challenge: Serenity

Serenity means peace, calm and untroubled.

Being at the beach is where I am the most at peace.   Watching the waves and tide come in is so relaxing.  It just washes my troubles away by allowing me to put most of them into perspective.

My grandson Arai also brings me peace (when he is not driving Mom-mom crazy). LOL

What Once Was…

Throwback Thursday

The SS Atlantus was built in 1918 and served 2 years transporting troops after Wold War I from Europe back to the states and coal to Europe.  After only 2 years of service she was retired to a salvage yard located Virginia in 1920.  SS Atlantus came out of retirement in 1926 and brought to NJ to create a new ferry service in Cape May NJ (her legacy continues with the Cape May Lewes Ferry).

Unfortunately a storm hit and the ship ran aground about 150 feet from shore and after many attempts to free her they were not able to free the SS Atlantus.  She was damaged and sunk.

The picture below is all that remains.

One of the interesting facts is that the SS Atlantus is made of concrete.  How does a concrete ship float?
