One photo a day challenge: Day 190. This plant became very wilted after our recent heat wave. It looked like it was going to die. The flower heads all drooped and died off. Then all the leaves turned brown. I really wasn’t sure it was going to survive. Then I noticed some new growth. Stems with flower heads began to emerge. It looked like the flower was resilient after all. I was… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 161. I set out to try something a little different today. Using artificial light in my photography has opened up some new avenues.

Other peonies are still smaller and the petals… Read More

Even if it was something I wouldn’t use all the time. I want to have a plan for all the tools in my bag. A use case. I want to know under what circumstances I… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 125. Most of the day today it was either raining or completely cloudy and dark. We had some nice bird visitors. A flock of Pine Siskins, a group of Blue Jays, and our first of the year Baltimore Oriole pair. I would have loved to photograph the birds but the conditions were poor for creating good photos. So it seemed like another perfect opportunity to wait… Read More
