It is the first of the month and the City Daily Photo community theme is “photo of the year”. This year I am sharing a photo from my iPhone favorites because I feel it reflects the most important thing I did in 2020. With this photo I wish to share a positive outlook for the future and a happy new year to all.
Sorry I am posting less frequently. I wish it was because I had gone fishing but no we are busy moving. As mentioned previously where we live is complicated and now we have decided to move back into our condo in Charlotte. However, we plan to continue to spend time at Seabrook as well. Once things settle down I’ll start posting regularly.
Seabrook Island includes community garden plots. Today’s photo shows plot 14 which is an impressive setup. In addition to raised garden beds made from really nice wood, they also have deck and chairs. To watch the green things grow.
My wife asked for a sandy beach photo she can use as a print for a coffee table tray. I took several but none were just right. The most challenging request was to have the photo be mostly sand and only a little water or sky. While trying to satisfy her request I realized the horizon was what allowed my camera to auto focus. I need to study my camera settings to see what sort of autofocus options exist. I’m not interesting in manual focus but I am interested to see if I can shift the focus point from the center of frame to different locations.
The day after a gale the sun came out however there was some standing water. The streets drained well however, as the photo shows, some parking lots did not drain as well. This photo is of the High Hammock Villas a short distance from the villas where we are staying.
This post should have been called the home we missed. It was in our price range but we did not move quickly enough. Before the pandemic resort property moved slowly however during the pandemic resort homes do not stay on the market long.
This specific home has a golf course view and has lots of windows. Even though the house is being sold “as is” there was a contingent sale within one week of going on the market.
