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.
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.
Sunsets, Railroad Tracks, and the Former Notre Dame Church.
I had some blankets to toss into the laundry last weekend and decided, on the way there, that the sun was just right to stop and check out this old barn in Grand Isle with the Acadian Flag painted on it.
Barn – Grand isle, maine
No the paint didn’t bleed! This is just how lovely the reflection was.
Rusty and old truck
After the laundry mat, I took a lil jaunt up a back road and snagged a few pics of this brilliant old truck and a few other items there.
Don’t ask me the name of this bird, he was knocked out in the middle of the road. I pulled over, kept him close for a while and he woke up – and sat on my car for a while, then took off!
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.
and of my collection of sea glass!
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.
