Shark! by olivetreeann

Shark!

Kitschy, tacky, goofy, ridiculous- whatever you want to call it- I'd agree. But at least I got this treasure hunt word out of the way!
Hooray! Its blue and scary too!

Well I think it is kind of cool, and creative.

Even as ridiculous as it may look, my daughter (34) would cry if she
sees this,,,,,she is scared to death of sharks ever since she saw the
movie.

@kimmistephens Thank you Kimmi!
@pulguis Thank you Pulguis! (Please don't show her then!! I never saw the movie because I knew it would scare me too much!)

Thank you all for your kind comments! I have another object to put in my "I Only Bought It for 365" pile.

Great shark for the challenge! Nice bright pic too. I'm still pondering how on Earth I'm going to find a shark to photograph...

@alia_801 Thanks Alia! I really wanted to go to an aquarium and photograph one, but knew that wasn't going to happen all too soon. Then I wanted to go to the craft store because I remembered they had these plastic toys of all kinds of animals, but I happened to be in Walmart and thought maybe the aquarium section might have a shark for the fish tank, saving me some time and giving me one less errand to run. The last resort was going to be making a cut-out shape of one and sticking it on some scrapbooking paper! Of course if you don't want to go the "natural" route with this word, you could always photograph a card shark.
@inertie Thank you Inertia!
@dmariewms Thank you Marie- he's sitting on a blue towel in a clear blue plastic bowl. I blurred the background areas where just a little bit of my living room wall was showing through.
@cortens Thank you Julie! My first attempt at photographing him didn't turn out the way I wanted it to, so this was the second attempt. The towel did the trick. I was using a paper background before and it was too flat. The towel gave it just enough dof to make it more interesting.

this is so nice: the colours are great!
January 17th, 2012  
He's a Jaws wannabe ;-) Cute photo.
January 17th, 2012  
Cool. how does this treachure hunt work? what kind of a thread is it?
January 17th, 2012  
cool - cool - cool photo - what fun ann!
January 18th, 2012  
Lol fun shot
January 18th, 2012  
shark attack! you got your shark well out of the way and it's a very nice set up. maybe i go to the market and find some chopped up shark.
January 19th, 2012  
Great colors! Wow!
January 20th, 2012  
@cimes1 lol Carole! You got that right! Thanks!
@bruni Thank you Bruni- it was a challenge/theme/discussion that someone started at the beginning of January. It's probably still listed there, but not on the home page. There were 31 objects/subjects to photograph and you had the option of doing them in whatever order you wanted to. If you type in the tag jan12_treasures, you should see a whole bunch of them.
@adobewaters Thanks Adobe! Fun and silly (o:
@steeler Thanks Howard- I'm sure you could have taken a better shot of the real thing on one of your dives.
@summerfield lol Vikki!
@mrssmith Thank you Carla!
January 20th, 2012
