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…

Difficult to be different. The color parade continues.

Continuing on with some autumn themed photos. I shot these earlier today in the local park. It was a last minute excursion and I didn’t expect much as the local park is far from being picturesque. My plan was to just focus on details, if I found any, but, as usual, I don’t even remember my plans when I start…

Man of few words

That’s me. Tonight at least. I shall resume later. For now a pretty picture.

Cracks in the works

I ran across this tree-like crack in the ice of a very small pond and was drawn to how it was emanating from the small rock at the edge. I think I shot about a dozen different perspectives, some¬†with the rock more¬†prominent,¬†but in the end I liked this “shot from above” look the best. Processing was another story. I spent…

Oh yeah, about that pod

I honestly thought I would be posting a lot more this year than I have so far. I had all intentions to focus on¬†keeping this¬†blog fresh and exciting¬†but after the holidays I seemed to have gotten extremely busy at my day job getting caught up from the time off and the photography has sort of been almost non-existent.¬† Throw in…

Not dried up yet

Unlike these winter plants, I still think I have some life left in my photo skills to give this blog another go around for another year. Of course I am kidding because it’s not the photography I am worried about, it’s the writing and coming up with catchy subject matter to write about. I’m not one to do the “resolution”…

I need more balls

Monkey balls, that is. It seems like this is a banner year for monkey balls, or hedge apples, bowwood, bois d’arc (French for “wood of the bow”), bodark, geelhout, mock orange, horse apple, naranjo chino, wild orange and yellow-wood. Offficially the Osage orange tree, has been quite noticeable for me this year as I drive around the rural regions of…

Exploring the same theme……….and beyond!

Another geese photo. This time with textures and a bold color cast. Not sure where I am going with this but considering I don’t get out in the early A.M. too often, I would guess not very far. And in another bold experiment, an unsuccessful in camera double-exposure. I thought the concept was good but perhaps the subject matter isn’t…
