Getting squiggly with it

I am not squiggly. Just some plants reflecting in wavy pond water. I know, it’s a ho-hum photo but I did want to post something since I’ve been away for a while. It’s generally not a good idea to post ones crappy photos but I felt like I had to do something. I’ll be back soon with some black and…

Time to take care of business again

Unfortunately summer has come to an end here in the northern hemisphere. It’s that time again for chilly nights and pumpkin beer. ūüėČ I have to say although I do like some aspects of autumn I’m just not feeling it this year. Summer seemed all too short. The weather never really got “summery” until late August so I was just…

It’s all about sharing

When I’m shooting large amounts of photos, which I try to do when I am out purposely taking photos, I tend to process a few of the ones I like after the shoot then¬†share them here and on Flickr, or even Facebook¬†on occasion, and the next thing I know I am moving on to the next batch. Sometimes good photos…

No surprise

It’s Independence Day in the USA, or as better known, the Fourth of July. With that comes picnics, hotdogs, partying , some flag waving, and, of course, fireworks!! A totally unoriginal shot for today but, eh, it’s a holiday and I didn’t want to break up the theme. a real live fireworks photo taken just moments ago. Display¬†courtesy of the…

LOL

Sometimes I like to laugh out loud -usually not when I’m typing on a touch screen ūüôā

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…

It’s a mind thing

First, I’ll start off with a totally original¬† photo, that no one else has attempted before – the “seagull on a post” pic! ūüôā As you¬†can tell by my sarcasm with the accompanying¬†photo, I haven’t been thrilled with my output as of late. Sure I have been through some growing pains experimenting with new gear, trying to find a balance…

Suddenly, it’s (last) summer

While winding down from this nice long (and hot!!) holiday weekend here in the USA, I thought I would look back and see what I was shooting around the same time last year. I was in the midst of my 365 project then so I was taking photos like crazy. I wasn’t working at the time so it was easy…

365-255 yellow

All I keep seeing is yellow flowers everywhere. They are nice and everything but some color variation would be pleasant on occasion. But I guess I can’t ask for much this time of year.¬†That being said, I may as well take advantage of them and do a few “summery” shots before everything turns brown. I¬†decided to do some¬†experimenting with in…

365-197 It’s the weekend

On weekends I notice that viewership is down. Let me rephrase that…not down, more like none. That’s fine, I understand. If I had a life (or a job)¬†I probably wouldn’t think of swinging by here on my days off, unless the weather was lousy. And speaking of weather, today was a beautiful day so I acted like it was a…
