One photo a day challenge: Day 208. If there is one thing this summer has brought us so far it is plenty of opportunities to take post storm photos. Rain frequently. Even multiple times in a day. Some things look better. The quality of their color is enhanced. Their character is changed. All this from the addition of some water. Rain brings the water. I bring the camera. I try to record… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 207. I went outside after dark for photos. The thought was to use some lighting to illuminate the flowers on our deck. I wanted to photograph the Cosmos because of their thinner softer looking petals. Hopefully the light would have an interesting look under the right kind of lighting. The way this image of a pink Cosmo turned out really caught my eye.
One photo a day challenge: Day 206. One of the best things about having a variety of interests both in and out of photography is the variety it puts in life and art. One day I am trying to train my lens on people running through the woods at high speeds. The next day I am photographing subjects that can’t move even if they wanted to. Today’s photography subject was back to… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 203. Recently I have been thinking that it seems like I haven’t seen many pollinators around our flowers at our house. It feels like normally this time of year they are everywhere. We plant quite a few flowers. Both perennials and annuals. We also have a large section of our yard that is left wild and is full of wildflowers. Normally there is a constant buzz… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 202. Tonight I went outside tonight to photograph some flowers in the low light. I had an idea of what flowers I wanted to photograph. There were a few I hadn’t photographed at night much if at all. The goal was to focus on those ones. Other than that I wasn’t really sure how I was going to proceed. Look through the lens and let the… Read More
One phot a day challenge: Day 201. I am really excited about this photograph. Not because it is some amazing photograph or anything like that. I am excited about what this photograph represents. This photograph represents trying and failing. And trying again, and again until there is progress and then hopefully success. If there is something you want to accomplish, there is only one way to make it happen. Keep trying until… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 200. Sometimes we are fortunate enough to be able to photograph subjects we weren’t expecting. It is a great feeling to have the opportunity to be able to create beautiful images of subjects we weren’t even looking for. I am not often presented with the opportunity to photograph snakes. But it is always nice when such opportunities turn out so nicely.
One phot a day challenge: Day 197. A little more rain. A few more flower photos. More rain drops. Water on petals. Flowers dripping with water. Seems abnormally wet for the time of year. But at least its helping mew create nice flower photos.
One photo a day challenge: Day 196. With all the rain lately it seems like the growth rate of plants has kicked into overdrive. I often focus on photographing flowers and trees when I am outdoors. However, Right now it is the time of the Fun Gi. Get it, Fungi. Yeah I know, terrible joke. But Seriously there are mushrooms growing all over my yard right now. I photographed at least 4… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 195. I have been seeing more snakes in the yard lately. I always enjoy seeing all varieties of wildlife in our yard. Even the snakes. Despite seeing more snakes in recent days I haven’t had any good opportunities to photograph any of the snakes recently. Today I went outside thinking I would try to photograph some of the flowers I don’t get a chance to photograph…. Read More
