Weekly Photo Challenge – Structure – Garden Snail

Common Garden Snail (Cornu aspersum), in Fife


My final submission for this weeks wordpress photo challenge, is yet another old photo, this time taken with a Nikon Coolpix L25 compact camera, and shows the wonderful ‘structure’‘ of the common garden snail (Cornu aspersum). I took these photos in our garden, back in 2013.

    1. Thank you Donna πŸ™‚
      And you’re right about the markings in the shell, most people just take the snail for granted, without looking closely at it. Of course, for gardeners, it’s a real pest, I don’t think my Dad would ever find them attractive! Lol! πŸ™‚

      1. Lol!!! I’ll have to tell my Dad about that, he’s constantly bemoaning all the snails in his garden and allotment, but compared to scorpions, he’s got it very easy!! I’m just picturing Cornish snails with pincers and a sting in their tails!! Lol! πŸ™‚

      My aplogies for taking so long to get back to you, I’ve started a photography course, and everything has been a wee bit hectic over the last two or three weeks.

    1. Thank you, I bet you get some amazing snails in your garden, I’d be very happy to see some of them over here, just to get a few shots of them! πŸ™‚

      1. Thank you for the compliment Dee πŸ™‚ But there’s loads I don’t know about photography!
        The course is a general one, the first term seems to be concentrating on studio work (portraits and still life), how to use lighting etc, all of which is totally new to me. The other thing we are doing quite a lot of, is deconstructing photos, ie looking at other peoples work, and working out how and why it was taken, which is quite interesting to. I also get the chance to use the infamous Photoshop & Lightroom for the first time in my life, I’ve always used free/open source software up until now πŸ™‚

      2. I’ll certainly let you know Dee, so far we’ve only spent about one hour using it 😦
        The problem I now have with the Adobe software is the fact that it’s subscription based, rather than the one off payment that it used to be! From the little I’ve seen, for black & white conversions, neither photoshop or lightroom are a patch on the Nik Silver Efex Pro software, I know these plugins can be added to photoshop, but I use them as standalone plugins, and they still work brilliantly like that πŸ™‚
