CSI Ruthie

Posted by
Ruthiebear (Titusville, NJ, United States) on 7 December 2012 in Documentary & Street.

ON a recent day out with a friend, we stopped to photograph the vultures in the trees. As we were walking through the parking area, we spotted some bones left from something the vultures had devoured. As we began to collect them, i also spotted a variety of other things... Here is the resulting crime scene we created with our findings.
(Yes we are crazy and probably watch tv crime shows too often)
I value your comments.

SONY NEX-C3 1/160 second F/4.0 ISO 800 18 mm

Photography is my hobby and I enjoy viewing your comments and images , because they help me become better. I look through my lens and see art, beauty, color, texture and detail. I hope you enjoy seeing my journey from my point of view. Thanks for stopping by.

Ha ha! The title really sums up your activities. Now all you need is a torch that seems very bright, but gives off no light, and a tube of something that goes yellow when you shake it!

Carol from Leamington, Canada

Oh Ruthie, you are a so cool, you have me chuckling away here. Well, the way I see it is that it looks like slim pickins there and probably not enough evidence to solve the crime, but I could be wrong CSI Ruthie! :) Such creativity, you rock! hugs

This is amusing, Ruthie. You always have to wonder what happened when someone left their underwear!

You came along and surprised him to the point that he left his underwear behind? He shouldn't be difficult to spot now! ;D

If I had not been reading "All That Remains" by Patricia Cornwell, I would have seen this and saved myself the trouble. This would have made a perfect cover illustration for sure. Great stuff if you have the stomach for it.
