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!

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.
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)
I got to spend the 4th of July working, and then taking pictures. Stonington had fun for the 4th – food on the docks, and fireworks… I met Shannon Stapleton, a photographer who works for Reuters on the dock. We talked photography and the Island.
This wonderful rainbow appears often over the water if its been foggy and clears or raining because of the way the sun catches the water crystals in the air.
The theme this year was: PIRATES!
I’ve been working on blur and focus – my new camera works different my old one – finding that balance has been interesting.
Light, shadows, colors and details.
I have a thing for doors. Like this one.
I have never taken pictures of fireworks before. So I googled. I do not have a trigger bulb release. I had to use a 2 second delay with means I had to time the shots out really well. Or, leave it to luck. I think it was 50/50
I played around with zooming in and out – the challenge in that is – focus.
My wife, god love her, as I do, isn’t an outdoors person. I am. ATVs, hiking, walking in the woods, going off and finding abandon houses, tramping along the railroad bed. But, I did get her to climb Haystack Mountain! Whooot!
The hike up was great, the sun was nice, and a few good pictures were had!
We often forget what is just in our back yard, and the gorgeous world that is around us, every single day. Cotton Candy Clouds on a Bed of Blue….
A few of these might make it up onto our wall one day. Was a great, short stint up rocky terrain.
