Yet another rainy day here in upstate, New York. But as I have said over and over, that means I am blessed with the opportunity to photograph more flowers with water droplets. Today For many of the shots I actually took a few flower pots off the porch and set them out in the rain. It was still raining and I didn’t want to go out in the rain. And some of… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 264. Peaches is such a calm and timid cat. 90% of the time she is either hiding from us or a dog or she is trying to quietly sneak across the room to solicit a little attention. She doesn’t run around and chase things. The only time she has any attitude is when she hisses at and occasionally chasses our other cat Monkey. Even though she… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 263. It is always interesting photographing plants. Unless they are in a small pot I can move around. I have to work with the plant how it has grown. These trumpet shaped flowers were protruding out towards the west. I liked being able to fit these two blossoms together in one photograph. Using a shallow depth of field and choosing the point of focus delivered an… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 262. I have used my macro lens so much this year. It has been so much fun. If you love photography and do not have a macro lens, I highly recommend one. There are so many fun and interesting things to do with them. Today I stumbled across this grasshopper just sitting on the fence. The grasshopper stayed there as I was putting away our garden… Read More

Perfect opportunity for some race photography. Here is one sample from the day. First male out of the gate. Check back soon for more photos from the race.

One photo a day challenge: Day 260. We have been fortunate to have more opportunities to get out with our dog Colton lately. The weather has cooperated. Not so hot for this big fluff ball. Now there are a few community events he can attend to help him get used to being out in the public. He needs to get readjusted to public life, just like the rest of us. Today we… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 259. Today I set out with my macro lens. I walked along the edge of a field with bushes. I was looking at the leaves and flowers. Finding subjects to photograph. I began to notice all the pollinators moving amongst the flowers. There were bees, hornets, wasps, and a cool looking beetle. The bees were moving too fast. It was challenging to compose and image and… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 258. Paisley is such an easy cat to work with. She doesn’t react to anything I am doing. I set up my lights. Paisley sits still. I get my camera out. Paisley does what a Paisley does. I point camera at her face. Paisley still relaxed and calm. Essentially Paisley does not care. Paisley Does not give a F*#&. This is actually a great quality for… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 257. Today was a very fun and interesting day of photography. I went on a short road trip with my dad to check out some photography subjects. The planned subjects for our photography were the type of subjects I generally do not shoot. It was interesting to make a plan to go out and stretch my creativity and work on some new subject matter. Our goal… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 256. As is often the case, I had no particular plan for my daily photography practice. As evening set in a rain storm also settled in. I have mentioned countless times that one of the best things about rain is photographing flowers after the rains. I looked outside. Then I felt outside. Is it still raining. No. No it is not. I gathered my gear. Nikon… Read More
