Spring. A refreshed outlook.

Regular readers (LOL) may have noticed that I always try to get away from ‘nature’ photography. I seem like I am happier when I get to photograph something of a different, ahem, nature. Yes, I do enjoy the occasional urban/street/automotive/abstract photograph, but I have decided that I will embrace the nature. Yes, I am going to happily photograph the natural…

My favorite photo from 2021

Generally, if I end up with one or two “good” photos in a year I am happy. I try not to be one of those people who show every photo they take. I really do try to self edit as much as possible. Sometimes one gets through that I later think, “meh, shouldn’t have shown that one”. Other times my…

Shooting vicariously through others

My photography output has been awfully low these past few months. I think I have shot less than I have in years. Why? Just a combination of things – first the usual suspects such as work and home, followed by the total lack of anything to shoot. I know, I have pretty much created my “style” around shooting anything and…

Cubism

In my last post that I titled a whirlwind of activity I found that I failed to mention any activity. Since the post before that one, my old computer died and I had to get a new one and start all over with installing programs, getting used to Windows 10, reinstalling programs, getting aggravated with windows 10, finding workarounds to…

A whirlwind of activity

I know it’s been over a month since my last post and honestly I never realized how fast time was flying by. I surprised I still have a few visitors every day because it would appear that I abandoned this site. But I’m still here! Well, for the time being at least. I have an idea for another site more…

Let it snow!

Ah yes, the snow has returned to WordPress!! It’s the most wonderful time of year! To add to the delight, I believe this photo I shot today has that light, snowy feel to it, even though it’s a weed. A dandelion in December! I haven’t done much macro work this year, most likely because I haven’t owned a macro lens since June.…

Fat man in the bathtub

And I’m sure he would have the blues if he was in this tub. Just another one of the many old bathtubs found throughout rural areas. This particular one has a spring emptying into it, most likely used for cattle at some point. I can’t show this photo without some Little Feat

Not a poet and I know it

Enough haiku silliness, time to get back to normal photography. I’m starting off spring with a nice texturally image of old wood and black rubber. I was drawn to this scene because of the old tire that the tree grew around. Although you can’t see it in this photo that is a real 15′ tree, with branches and everything, that the…
