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)

Sometimes you just gotta pull over and snag a pic.  I love trains, but they are never “stopped” by my house, so I did a 5 min – “snap as fast as you can” the other day.

The full moon is always a challenge to shoot, I think I got one or two right this time.

4-7-2018–Can You See The World Through a Drop of Water?

Snow, snow and more snow!

Echo is still loving the snow, but I’m anxious for the grass!

This was the snow on my windshield.  It looked wicked!

I’ve purchased these cheap focal lens – to do macro photography.  I do need to invest in some lens extensions – while the lens filters do a good job, I’d love a better photo!

A bleary winter day – doesn’t mean there isn’t beauty around!

I had been feeling super uninspired lately – then on a day Jules was working – I had a little bit of good light and decided to take the bull by the horns and snaps a few pics of this glorious camera a friend of mine gave me.

Driving home can be an adventure of its own.  These are the captures of an evening when the sun sets early and the colors were close to perfect.  All about Shadows and Light.
