One photo a day challenge: Day 323. I love the variety of colors in this photo. Using some decorative corn cobs. Getting close up for a macro shot featuring just a small group of kernels. I focused on a section where the kernels were a little more irreguluar. Trying to find a spot that represented a wider variety of colors as well. Angling the lens to reduce the depth of field. Kernels… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 319. I always wonder how well my plants will grow once I bring them inside. All the plants are in different states of health from the onset of cold weather once I brought them incside. Some still had flowers. Others had gone to more of a dormant stage. Some of the flowers were still actively producing new flower blossoms. One of the more hardy plants, the… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 318. Spent some time exploring the the woods around our house today. I just walked through the woods with no particular intent. Wondering. Looking. Observing. Trying to find anything that looked interesting to train my lens on. Looking for any last bits of autumn colors left on leaves and trees. There wasn’t much color on leave, but I found some. But the most colorful sight in… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 317. During what was mostly a rainy and gloomy day the sun peaked out for just a moment. This was my cue. Time to make the photos. I wanted to get outside and see if any of the few flowers still out there were blooming at all this deep into fall. There were still a few blossoms on one perennial. And there were also a few… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 311. Accept the things we cannot control. Hopefully we all had an extra hour of sleep last night. That means that sunrise and sunset will be an hour earlier now. What that means for me is a chance to be up early and create some photography earlier in the morning. I am usually up pretty early. The late sunrise means I have to wait longer for… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 308. Continuing to explore the flower that remain blooming now that I have moved them inside. Today I wanted to focus on these teeny tiny flowers that grow on short wispy stems. These flowers grow in clumps and clusters. The fact that these individual flower blossoms are tiny will become evident. Normally when I get as close as I can to a flower with my macro… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 307. Today’s photo was supposed to be all about the flowers I had moved indoors. Then this tiny spider dropped down off one of the flowers. The spider started climbing all over. The spider stole the show. So here it is. Tiny spider on an indoor flower.

One phot a day challenge: Day 306. Cold weather is coming to my part of upstate, New York. Overnight lows below freezing for the rest of the week. I am moving a bunch of my annuals inside. I am going to try to keep my annuals alive indoors for as long as I can. Hopefully some of them will at least survive and go dormant only to return next spring. Part of… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 304. I have been fortunate to have many plants that have been surviving well into fall now. These plants are outside on my deck. And they are just getting absolutely pounded here in upstate New York right now. So much rain. However, it has finally stopped raining. I thought this was a great opportunity to get outside and photograph these plants before they are gone. I… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 303. It is always nice to photograph different seasonal things. Subjects that can only be photographed at certain times of years. One such subject can be Christmas lights. I enjoy photographing different types of holiday light displays. I often like to get close up looks at bulbs. One lightbulb in focus in the foreground and then other blubs out of focus in the background are great… Read More
