One Photo a Day Challenge: Day 87. I have at least 5 plants that I have successfully overwintered in my basement. If I hadn’t tried to overwinter them in my basement they would have died. I can tell that at least these 5 plants have been successful to this point because they are actively growing new foliage. I just discovered one that I had suspected would survive the overwintering had indeed survived…. Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 78. Recently I have been able to work part time from home. In our office I have a standing desk converter. Being able to stand at work at my desk makes being in the office much more bearable. After a couple weeks worth of working from home with no standing desk was taking its toll on me. It is beginning to look like an at least… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 73. We have been experiencing some warmer weather in upstate New York. Most of the snow in our region has melted. More often than not lately the high temperature for the day ahs been above freezing. Spring is a week away. It is almost one of the best times of the year. The time of year when all the new growth begins to emerge. Spring is… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 62. Today was grocery day. That means it was the perfect opportunity to acquire a new subject for todays photographs. The store always has a nice selection of flowers. When photographing flowers indoor I prefer lighter colored flowers because that requires less light, which there typically is less of indoors. The flowers I selected for todays photographs was a bouquet of purple carnations. To photograph the… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 53. Today I returned to the bouquet of carnations that my wife had bought for me. I set up the lighting for the flowers a little differently this time. I also changed what I used for a background for the photos. Today I focused on two things. One close ups. Two contrasting the white against the red and the red against the white. If you appreciate… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 46. During this challenge there are subjects that I have come back to more than once. When I do I try to share a different type of photo. If I can I try to take the same subject and photograph it in a different way. It is possible to photograph the same subject with very different results. I have photographed different types of hardware. Specifically I… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 43. Today I returned to photographing metal framing hardware. I started off trying to intentionally arrange some of the objects I hadn’t photographed before. Eventually I moved to just tossing pieces haphazardly on a canvas and photographing them where they lie. I think I am getting inspired to work more with materials like this. I will just need to acquire more interesting hardware. If you enjoy… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 36. I really enjoyed my experimentation with photographing bread recently. It has inspired me to try my hand at photographing more food. I like food and I like photography. It seems like a perfect combination. My goal is to create photographs of food that are more creative. For me creative means macro photography usually. And macro on a level where you might not be able to… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 35. Today I went for a run for the first time in a little over a week. It seemed like the perfect time to put together two newer pieces of gear for a test run and see if they would really work the way I was hoping. Unfortunately things did not work out quite the way I had hoped. The gear didn’t quite mesh with my… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 31. Global pandemic lead to quarantine. Everyone being home lead to people finding new things to do with their time. People engaging in activities maybe they thought they never would otherwise. People have been finding new and creative ways to spend their time. New and creative ways to get in touch with themselves. One way people find meaning is through cooking. IT seems there was a… Read More
