One week later and it’s a different scene

The photos I took in my last post were taken in a nearby park. One week after I took those photos, the scene totally changed – we had snow! Though the idea of snow in December in Pennsylvania doesn’t sound unusual, it has been a rarity the last few years. An inch or two or a dusting here or there…

Bend it like Escher

He who wonders discovers that this in itself is wonder. –  M. C. Escher OK, this doesn’t quite look like an Escher drawing, but that’s what shiny globe reflections always remind me of.  I shot this while wandering past some antique shops in a nearby town where I can usually find interesting objects to shoot that are displayed in the…

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…

365-168 Reflections

Visited my old standby, the cemetery, today to see if there was any action at the duck pond. There were no ducks to speak of but  quite a few big geese waddling around everywhere. Enough geese where I had to watch where I was walking 😉 . I decided to explore around the pond anyhow and look for some other subjects.…

365-127 Doo, doo, doo, Looking out my back door

Well I didn’t see any giants doing cartwheels or statues wearing high heels but I did turn to see the outdoor color reflecting in the glass of my kitchen door.  I wanted the color to be subtle and of course no reflected detail so I focused on the string and let everything else blur. Blind

A few extra shots from yesterday – Dawes Arboretum

As promised last night, here’s a few extra shots from yesterday. Like I mentioned, I had to go to Columbus, Ohio and along the way is Dawes Arboretum. I didn’t have too much time to spend there but I made a detour to check it out and see what was available to shoot. This early in the year, I didn’t…

365-81 Still water

I don’t come across still water reflections too often so I was thrilled to get this shot. I know the “reflecting trees shot” has been done often, and usually to better effect, but it was fun to try.  I had to go to Columbus on business today so I swung by Dawes Arboretum to see what was there. I didn’t expect much…

365-69 Mellow Yellow

Yellow can be a bright cheerful color, especially after a drab winter. I didn’t head out to shoot yellow, or any other color, today. It’s still raining for the second day and I really didn’t feel like walking around and getting soaking wet so I tried to find subjects from my car. I took a shot of reflections while waiting…

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…
