More Pond Scum
Posted By: Bob Harris, 01-23-2012, 08:17 PM

the aerator in the campground pond pushes the residue to the edge where I took yet another shot of an interesting image.

thanks Charlie, I am thinking of an underwater scum shot if I can talk my wife into going under the water to take a photo looking up through the pond scum.

Another really cool abstract, Bob! This one looks even more zebra-like to me! Very cool!
Lori, this is a tighter shot than the other one and with a little contrast I think it turned out better. It is sort of abstract, so it depends upon the view I guess. Glad you like it and I can't wait to take a zebra photo to post. Take care...

Bob this is brilliant my friend! I think i even like these more than the previous pond scum shots... a most definite work of art good sir!
Well, I will tell you, with a review like yours, I proclaim myself
"The King of Pond Scum". Now that should make my family proud.
Thanks for the kind words, always appreciated.

Hey thanks Tom, turned out pretty cool. I am wondering if they would allow me to pour and light a gallon of gas on the pond. That would be a great "Smoke on the Water" shot.

You're thinking "Deep Purple"...everytime I look at this shot, I'm thinking "The Doors".
