Impressions in the cemetery

I don’t know what draws me to the cemetery but I like to visit it more often than I should – to look for photos, of course. I do like the details and textures that are abundant, especially in the older graves and tombs. There is also wildlife and plants and trees to add to the mix. When I have…

Suddenly, it’s (last) summer

While winding down from this nice long (and hot!!) holiday weekend here in the USA, I thought I would look back and see what I was shooting around the same time last year. I was in the midst of my 365 project then so I was taking photos like crazy. I wasn’t working at the time so it was easy…

A rocky start

Just a few more black and white images to share with you. These were all taken around a campground and the subjects are basically non-subjects. Hey, I can only shoot what’s in front of me. ūüôā For some reason I am really liking the black and white images I have been getting with the Lumix¬†camera lately. I don’t know what…

Buildings and angles in black and white

While walking around in Wheeling, West Virginia the other day, I snapped a number of photos of the local architecture. Most of my shots were from ground level while looking up. Not exactly the best way to do architectural studies. Be that as it may, I wasn’t equipped with a telephoto to zoom in on the details from afar or…

Feelin’ goofy

There was a carnival in my town this weekend which, of course, I did not attend. I had other things to do and really have no need to go to a parking lot carnival, at least a local one. If I came across one in another town and had nothing better to do, I might consider it. A carnival is…

A round of rust

How about a series of rusty pipe photos? I know, I know….you can calm down now. Be patient and you’ll be able to view this wonderful series as soon as you are done reading. I took these photos last month when I was just testing out¬†the¬†Lumix¬†GX1¬†camera and never did anything with them. I don’t know why – I mean, seriously,¬†the…

Finally, a sign……..(and another sign)

Today I drove through a town that I haven’t been to before. A small, nice looking town that looked like it had a lot of photo possibilities within it but, unfortunately, I didn’t have the time today to explore. It’s a few hours away from where I live so I may return on my own time some day. After spotting…

Thank you subscribers

I just want to take the time to thank everyone who has subscribed to my blog. It really means a lot to me that you care enough to want to know what I post and take the time to visit often. Trying to get this blog off the ground gets a little easier when I know folks are interested in…

Scoolhouse(s) rock

I’m not even sure if these buildings were ever schoolhouses,¬†but I came up with a catchy post title and I’m sticking with it! ūüôā These are just a couple of old rural buildings I came across during my travels and I thought they looked interesting. I basically shot them from the road so I didn’t get to put much effort…

Purple palm trees!

I thought I would post¬†a nice colorful photo for this weekend. A night-time street scene on Ocean Drive in Miami Beach. I would think a thousand other tourists have a¬†similar shot, but nobody I saw walking by with cameras bothered to point it in the same direction.¬†It’s not often that I make the attempt at an after dark photo, mostly…
