Spring flowers – Leica M9 – A lesson

My wife and I made the half-hour trip to a nearby park to get stretch our legs and enjoy some nice spring weather. It was nice getting away from our neighborhood (which isn’t so nice) to a pleasant place to walk around. Oglebay Park is situated in Wheeling, West Virginia and covers quite a few acres. They usually have some…

My impressions of the Canon EOS M camera

What’s this? A camera review? Well, not really, more of an opinion. I¬† generally keep the gear talk to a minimum around here but I thought I would give my impressions of the Canon EOS M camera and 22mm f2 lens. That’s right, a very timely look at a camera that was released a couple of years ago ūüėČ ¬†and…

Plant life

It’s the weekend and viewership is usually down, so I’ll keep the chit-chat to a minimum. This shot is simply of¬†two large leaves, taken near sunset at a nearby park. I kind of like the color contrasts between them and the warm lighting.¬†My one regret though was that I didn’t drag out the tripod and shoot it at a lower…

Crickets chirping….

…..is¬†what I hear around here lately. It’s been a bit lonely with the lack of visitors¬†but I have no one to blame but myself. My photography output is way down since last years 365 project. Plus I find that, without the pressure of having to do a daily photo, I don’t push myself to get out there and shoot. I…

Filtered flowers

Well, after yesterdays protest blackout, I thought it would be nice to return with some flowers. But because this is winter and there isn’t a flower in site, I had to look in my files for some photos I took in the past.¬†I had spent a day last spring in a nearby park and took¬†what seemed like¬†a gazillion flower photos.…

365-265 The final 100!

Whew, only 100 more days to finish my 365! I’m kind of looking forward to it because having to come up with a somewhat interesting photo every day is a bit nerve-racking at times, especially when I am busy with other things. Yet, at the same time, having to do it has pushed me creatively further than I ever would…

365-233 Been there, done that

I revisited Oglebay¬†Park today to shoot a little color for a change. I was there last spring for a previous 365 shot (365-110 ). While I was there today¬†I shot some flowers, a few butterflies,¬†and the grounds. All things I have done in past posts. The problem with the park is that it is so nice and clean I can’t…

Additional photos from Oglebay Park

Just a few extra photos from visiting Oglebay Park yesterday. Like I said earlier, I think I¬†have¬†enough flower shots for a while. I’m going to try to get back to normal. ¬†Enjoy!!
