365-322 Well, there was this cat

My 365 shot for today is a closeup of a painted bolt. I went with this photo because I haven’t had very many abstract photos lately. Plus it’s orange! I’ve been kind of focusing on general scenes and nature in recent weeks and not focusing on any details, so I thought it would be a nice diversion. Pentax K20D, DA18-135. Orange…

365-279 Nothing really

I took a few sunrise photos this morning. I thought they looked good on the camera but after I viewed them on my monitor they just didn’t work for me. That happens. But I was intrigued by these dew covered twigs I captured. Just a grab shot really. They were backlit by the early sunrise. I’m glad I shot them as…

365-277 Reflecting time

I’ll keep the chatter to a minimum today because I just want to take a break. I really need to do some adjustments on my guitars and change some strings. Plus just working on some songs and relaxing. I also want to visit a few sites of the fellow bloggers who stopped by here. So I’ll leave you with a…

365-217 Some color for a change

I haven’t really done any bold color abstracts in a while so, although this wasn’t the photo I planned on using, it won out. I was in a landfill again (yet another one) and this is leachate stained plastic liner. In real life it’s just a typical sight you see on a landfill but I just seemed to notice another dimension in…

365-160 Bugged about photos

I have been having a few days now where I’m not too inspired photographically. I have those every once in a while and I’m not too concerned, yet. I think it just makes it boring for my viewers here. I apologize for that. I have some “life” issues that I’m taking care of right now and the photography is kind…

365-99 Some like it hot

I’ll keep the description short today. I was thinking of just getting a picture around the house for my 365 today but after looking around, I thought maybe I should take a quick drive to see if there’s anything to shoot.  Heading out in a different direction than I normally would, I saw some smoke as I was driving down the…

365-83 Orange and Blue

Besides being the title of my 365 shot, an abstract detail of a dumpster in front of a former Blockbuster Video store, it’s also the title of an album by Al Di Meola, a phenomenal jazz/fusion guitarist. Orange and Blue is an album that you have to listen from beginning to end to get the full experience. There are individual…

365-65 Movin’ on

Number 65!! Only 300 more to go! 300?!! Yikes. Sticking around the house again today, which makes it tough to find photo subjects. I hope to get out and about more as the weather improves. I’m still layed off from my “normal” job, so I have plenty of time but no money. ;-(  With gas prices rising, I have to…

365-52 A little lazy today

Nothing fancy today, just pretzel sticks in a bag. Straight built-in flash shot, not even any fancy f/1.4 bokeh, natural light stuff. I did do a little touch of orton effect in processing just to jazz it up a bit. I’ll make up for it tomorrow. Pentax K20D, DA17-70. Sticks In a Bag

365-35 Different color

Photo for today is a sunset, mostly because it’s a rare sight as of late. I feel warmer already. A pretty straightforward shot taken at a nearby farm. Pentax K20D, DA17-70 Sundown
