Thematic Photographic 19: "Grounded" v.2.0

"Grounded II"
Raleigh, NC - October 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Thematic Photographic hosted by Carmi - Button Image by Smarmoofus Hosted by Written Inc.

Did you ever have one of those days when you forgot what day it was? Happened to me on Tuesday. Carmi left a heads up on his last Thematic for the "Kids" theme letting us know that this week's prompt would be "Grounded". And I jumped the gun. So today when you'd normally be seeing my first foray into Thematic Land, you instead have v.2.0. So I've left a trail of breadcrumbs for you to get back to v.1.0.. In exploring all of the various things "Grounded" could mean, this was the second thought that came to mind. I'd hoped to have an eerie silhouette backlit by a welding arc, but that proved to be too tough to do on a self-timer. So I just turned the welder off and opted for something a little less ... unstable. Hope you enjoy both offerings!

I'm amazed it's Thursday already.

Oooh - you're stamping your photos with your website now. That's a great idea, and an interesting photo.

Interesting shot for sure. I like what you did with the light in the background. Great idea to place your website on the photos. I should do the same. I'll put it on my To Do List (which is getting longer by the second)

Very "outside the box" thinking on the theme... I like! The photo has some good light and shadow stuff going on, too.. cool!
