Runnin’ with the dog(wood)s. A mixed process.

I took some photos of some spring trees in the local park with my Leica M9 the other day. After reviewing the photos that evening I spotted some ideas in one of the photos that would require a closer look than my Leica was capable of. So I headed out the next day with my Fuji gear in hopes of…

Ramshackle Ruralty

With the lack of much to say, I’m just going to post two photos from my archives that I enjoy. They are subjects that I found while driving around on rural roads a couple of years back. From a creative standpoint they are surely lacking, but when I look at the prints I made of them I just find them…

Follow-up to the last post – some bird photos

Following up from my previous post where I mentioned that I shot a couple of bird photographs. Now, bird photography is not my usual “thing”, but when the chance arises from time to time I do enjoy the challenge. A challenge it is, as I do not own the proper equipment for bird photography. Especially considering the birds in my…

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…

Into the pines with the Leica M9

I had some free time the other day after an appointment and thought it would be nice to swing by a local park to find some photo opportunities. I haven’t been able to get out much lately, pandemic protocols aside, and I really wanted to stretch my legs and have some creative time. Being that it was a cloudy, cold…

My best planning is no planning

I headed out to a nearby park to attempt some photography of details of nature. The bulk of the fall color had already passed peak and I wasn’t expecting much in the way of color, so I had black and white on my mind. Maybe some textures of dead leaves or a nice bare tree. Probably the one drawback was…

Autumn details with X-Pro2

  With my veeeerrrry long time away from this blog I have been trying hard (OK, not that hard) to find some worthy shots to post. I know I make excuses all of the time about my lack of input but since my day job has been busier than ever and coupled with a lack of travel outside of my…

Hey that’s not a nature camera! Shooting trees with my Fujifilm X-Pro2.

The Fujifilm X-Pro2 is a fantastic camera and the more I use it the more I like using it. But the XP2 is clearly marketed towards street and typical “rangefinder” type users. A modern Leica, if you will. And I purchased the camera to use it as such. I wanted a “rangefinder” style camera so I would purposely stick to…

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…

Posting about posting

Hi, welcome back! I decided¬†I am going to attempt to post every day in the month of July. Why? Well why not, I say. Seriously, I just feel the need to push myself a little and posting every day necessitates going the extra inch. What the posts will be, I don’t know yet. They may simply be photos with a…
