365-285 Zzzz

Back home again. It’s been a long day with work and traveling so I’m just going to post and run tonight. I’ll leave you with some autumn reflections. Pentax K20D, DA17-70. Edit: Looking at the photo today after getting some sleep, I think I need to tone down the saturation a bit. That blue is a little too bold. Note…

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…

365-270 No rush

Although there are signs that the seasons are changing, it will still be about another month before it really looks like autumn around here. I hope I can do the season justice in the coming weeks. Last year, I had some camera gear in for service right at the peak time and it was tough to watch the colors go…

365-203 One shot

It’s late and I’ve been busy and traveling all day so I’ll just post a single shot today. I stopped to get gas at a highway exit and saw a sign for a state park nearby and I figured that may be a good place to grab a daily shot. I spotted this duck contrasting against the reflected green in…

365-196 Why I am not a landscape photographer

I didn’t get around to taking any photos until late tonight because I didn’t have a camera with me while I was out earlier. Since it was near dark when I went to get a shot I thought an evening sky reflecting in the lake would be nice for a change. There were enough clouds in the sky to make it…

365-193 At the waters edge

I waited until evening to take some photos today. I thought I would stop by a local lake that is a popular fishing area. I experimented with moving camera, slow shutter techniques and even did a few straightforward sunset shots. Most of my photo attempts were unsuccessful but I walked away with a few keepers. I am also trying a…

365-123 Take green, add water

Surprise! It’s pouring down rain again today! Absolutely lovely! The bright side is, I guess, that it’s not snow. So I thought I may as well take advantage of the rain and use it creatively. After running some errands, my wife and I stopped for a drive-through dinner and parked my truck under a tree at the corner of the parking lot.…

365-94 Have you ever seen the rain?

My wife and I were in a strip mall parking lot and had to wait out a heavy rainstorm while sitting in my truck. Well, we didn’t really have to wait it out because we had nothing we needed to do anyhow ;-). But I didn’t feel like driving through the thunderstorm, so we hung out and enjoyed a Starbucks. While waiting, I looked…

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…
