My childhood friend, Melissa, aka Mac, came to the Island this weekend. She too, has a lovely Canon Rebel and we spent all of Saturday running around taking pictures – here are mine
The village of Stonington, Maine is just – well – breathtaking
Playing with the macro attachments!
Perspective! AKA Belly time!
I dragged Mac over to Barred Island and we spent some fun time tripping over roots and checking out shadows and light
Macro! I never realized how pretty moss was.
I started playing with my F settings and exposure – a few of my photos were “washed” out – however, I was able to recover much of it with my photo editor.
This is how the sun hits pink granite on the – macro of x7
I saw this mushroom – and instantly I thought of the Smurfs – then I get up and Mac said the same thing. It’s amazing how sometimes we think alike!
To end the day (Before food that is!) we hit up Sand Beach – tide was still high – but it was still a breathtaking sight to see.
A picture is worth 1000 words
I purchased a set of Macro lens – so now I am looking at the world in a whole new way – mostly down on my belly or kneeling in the muck taking pics
I found this little guy crawling around on my porch last week. Oh so very slowly.
I have 4 different lenses – x10, x4, x2 and x1 – Autofocus is close to useless while using 10 – I can also stack them for more magnifications
I’m a “fan” of the whole focus/blur – so I use the P setting often – one thing off to the side, with the blur washing out to one side.
On some nights, you just know when the light is going to make the sky a fiery orange…..
Sometimes you take a few pictures and the light shifts again, different refractions on the sky, the water, on the atoms in the air….. and you come away with a whole different look….
I tried my hand at a few night shots – I need to get a trigger bulb! No way outta that! Next investment
I was heading to a patients home and found this little off set lily pond!
Living on an island is fun when you chase the sun. I’ve a few “off island” places I want to catch the sun doing down soon.
There is beauty in everything – in every fleck of rust, in every curve of a bottle, in every color of glass, in every line of a table, in the way the light shafts of the angle of a door knob…. There is beauty everywhere….
