Another night and another great sunset – and a few up close pics of those lovely purple flowers that litter our back yard and from the previous evenings moon rising.

05-30-2018–Sunsets and Church

I happen to be fortunate enough to live just down the street from a great old church that boasts the BEST Angels on its twin towers.

I also happen to get to see some of the best sunsets Northern Maine has to offer from my back yard.

Working on learning my lens extenders which changes the focus of your lens so you can get closer and do some macro photography.  They aren’t as GOOD as a macro lens, but for now, they shall do!

05-25-2018–Rust and Sky

A few old cars over in PI – my friend, Jamie P, took some of the same cars – his were FAR better!

I messed up on a setting somewhere, I think my f/stop.  But I did get a few good one of the 15 I took!

I had some visitors.  I’ve been working on camera settings a lot lately.

We just recently purchase the property next door, the one that I began my life at.  The old occupant – left behind some stuff… Including

An old disco ball (a mini)

The first photo below is the view to the west, the next is the view to the east.  They look nothing alike.

I’ve been playing around with more focus, and depth of field, aperture, etc.  Sometimes finding a good subject to practice on is difficult, other times you need to make things up.

And  then, the sky changed.  It moved from dark and foreboding to pink and glorious.

Fingers in the sky and abandon doors. 

Perfection.

I’ve been doing these – “Take as many in five as you can” sessions lately, as I drive home.

Not much difference between the color (above) and the black and white (below)
