Annual mushroom in the yard photos

Every year at this time I get a small crop of mushrooms that pop up in my yard, usually around 10 days or so after my last mow. And every year I try to photograph them and present them in a different way because, really, how many ways can you show mushrooms growing in a lawn? The crop this year…

Fall of no color

I snapped this photo of a rural road today as part of my annual autumn theme photos. Since it’s still relatively early in the season the color wasn’t quite fully developed and a lot of the leaves were still green. The scene was nice but not nice enough. Instead of a wasted shot I wondered what the photo would look like in…

Nothing too technical this time around

I promise no more gear talk for a while. At least not as in-depth as that last post. Let’s get back to images starting with some hay bales I spotted in the fog this morning. Cliché I know, but it’s autumn! I’m sure you can’t wait for the obligatory pumpkin pictures! 😉 For the record though I did shoot this with the…

Time to move on

These are probably going to be last of the Autumn themed photos for this year. I know, I know, it’s been lots of fun 🙂 but I have to work with what I’m given. And given that it is heading into the dreaded “ugly time of year”….winter (around here at least), I need to focus on other things besides nature.…

Feel free to browse

While I get in a creative lull, such as I have been lately, I like to look back on photos I shot over the years. I find it fun and relaxing. I come across some favorite photos and I remember how the photo came about or what I was doing that day. I also come across a lot of photos just…

While I pause – Happy Halloween

I thought I would post a “scary” picture for the holiday but decided to play around with something lighter. This is crude as can be, but somehow I like it. Fun isn’t always perfect.  

Autumn of a different color

What to do when the Autumn color just isn’t very spectacular and straight black and white isn’t working? Monochrome of a different color! I visited the local park to see if there was any fall color remaining to at least capture something before the dreaded six months of colorless landscape occurs. Although the park looked “autumny” I really didn’t see any “big picture”…

ExPrEsSiOn

Autumn color is not overly abundant this year so, out of curiosity, I looked in my files from last year to compare the seasons. I found that I had a number of colorful fall shots last year. It may have just been the timing of when I was out last year since I haven’t been able to make the time this…

Perseverance

Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.  ~Newt Gingrich   Victory!! After a lot of patience and perseverance, I believe I have finally fixed my computer. It took a few nights of not doing the right thing and getting frustrated before I buckled down and slowly went through…

Everythings broken

Been having a tough time here at Whatipic headquarters lately. It appears my computer is down for the count. I did just about everything I can think of but it still acting a little crazy. It did a phantom restart the other night, which seemed quite odd and I knew something was up. The next day it started playing random…
