Big fluffy dogs often love being outside in the winter. Snow on the ground. Cold crisp day in March. Nothing better than trotting around the yard and enjoying the day if you are a big fluffy chow mix dog. This is a dog my dad had named Chewing. Such a friendly loving dog. I always enjoy am opportunity to photograph a fury family member. Photo details: Nikon D300. Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8. Focal… Read More
Over the course of 2021 I did something I have never done before. I took at least one photo every single day. Often many, many more than one photo. Then I took one of the photos I just created on that day and I shared it here on my blog. 2021 One photo a day project: One reason I wanted to do this is there are many times where I feel stuck,… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 365. Well We did it. 1 photo a day for 365 days. That was quite an experience. I was hoping that this Gerbera Daisy would be in full bloom for the final photo of this project. And while it wasn’t quite in full bloom I was able to create some interesting photos. The petals had opened up farther than they were previously. I was able to… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 364. The other day I shared a photo of a Gerbera Daisy I was growing. The flower blossom was jus tin the beginning phases of blooming.

Maybe by tomorrow… Read More

This is especially the case when there has been no training and no food inducements involved. Today I set up my lights and tried to convince one of my cats, any of my cats to approach me so I could… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 362. So, I have planned out most of the races I want to run for the 2022 season. I have them all on a calendar. Now just to register for each race as registration opens up. I am already registered for one race in March. Today I just registered for one race that isn’t until June, but I figured I might as well register for it… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 361. As fall and winter progressed her in upstate, New York I decided to move some of my potted perennial flowers indoor to try to preserve them for next spring. The hope was to at very least preserve the plants in a dormant state over the cold months. Then assuming they would still be alive, put them back outside in the spring for them to return… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 360. Having a macro lens is great for exploring small objects. I also love it for exploring textures. I am not sure there are more interesting ways to explore texture than with a macro lens. Especially if you shoot with the macro lens set at an aperture as wide open as it can be. This really sets the focus on the subject of the image and… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 359. A nice relaxed holiday just the way I like it. Visited with some family for Christmas morning. Then came home and gave our dogs their presents. Our Bernese Mountain Dog Colton actually tried to open his this year.
