One photo a day challenge: Day 332. I’ve been watching as the geraniums I brought inside continue to grow through the fall. The plants have been growing flower buds. Patiently waiting for the flowers to develop enough to bloom. Finally the geranium flowers are beginning to blossom.

One photo a day challenge: Day 322. I like how this photo has one singular point of focus. That is the only area that is sharp and in focus. Everything else extending out from there is increasingly out of focus. More and more out of focus as the eye moves towards the forground. And the flower in the front of the image is so out of focus it is rendered as a… 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 314. Being in the midst of a one photo a day challenge I am always on the lookout for interesting photography subjects. During the time of year when this often means more indoor photography I am even more alert for subjects when I am in a store. Picking up a new item to photograph is always fun. Today at the store I saw a plant I… 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 290. Today I went outside at night to photograph flowers. I took my Lume Cube panel mini lights out to illuminate the subjects. I decided to photograph just one plant. I chose the Strawflower. Still blooming strong even into the fall. I worked with the variety of flowers still in bloom on the plant. Trying to find different angles to view each blossom from. Photographing each… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 289. My wife picked out this enormous potted mum. It is apparently the only one that I am doing a good job keeping alive. Not sure what I am doing wrong with the other plants but at least this one seems mostly healthy. It is such a beautiful plant. Flowers of multiple colors. Flower blossoms with multiple colors in one individual flower. I just love all… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 279. Today I decided to return to the same flowers I photographed yesterday. I moved the placement of the flower pot from the ground to the railing. This will create a different angle of view that I will be shooting from. I arranged my lighting in a different configuration. The flowers will be illuminated differently than yesterday. There was less rain today. The level of moisture… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 278. I think this has been the rainiest summer into fall season I can ever remember. It seems to rain so frequently that it is impossible to do anything that actually requires dry weather, like dry out a tent after camping. Fortunately photography doesn’t require dry weather. All this rain has really allowed me to explore shooting in low light. Using artificial light. Finding interesting angles… Read More
