Sometimes you take a set of photos and are just “not happy” with them. This is what happened when I was in New Mexico a few years ago (4!). I didn’t, at the time, have lightroom. I have over 300 gigs of photos so going thru every single set is – near impossible. This was a set that I wanted to give another shot.

Doors! Bridges! Deer Isle, where I’ve spent more of my PTA career than anywhere else!
This youngling was crossing in front of my care one evening, I pulled over to snap a shot, whistled and she turned.
The one thing we have plenty of in Northern Maine = snow!
Oh my lovely sunflares, how I love thee
Having spent the full year in the Mid-Coast area, I truly began to explore. Having been there for 9 weeks in full winter before was difficult to really see everything – but with a year to venture, I found I still didn’t see Everything!
With a new camera and lens, came learning it all over again. There are several creative settings on the t5i and I’m only just getting a good grasp on them.
Above is Moonrise and below is sunset the next day!
Oh Echo, this is the best pic of her I have gotten so far. She’s such a serious dog. And never really sits still. I love her “eyebrows”.
The below is my Christmas Eve Sunset up at Long Lake on my way to my brother’s place.
The below is in Bar Harbor – I was heading there every few days for work, I had pts there – this took me about 3 weeks to get JUST the right timing that the sun would be the “top” of the crate tree.
Until now, I’d had a film camera – then my lovely wife bought me my first DSLR – a 10meg pix Canon Rebel SL – bare basic, stripped down camera.
Right outside Lajoie/Gran Prix Farms in VB.
I still had my bare basic SL at this time, which is STILL in my closet, btw. However, I was steadfast that when I got home I was getting an “all in one” lens because hoofing around a wide angle and a telephoto was getting heavy.
I love doors, well, I love a lot of things. This is in Taos, New Mexico in the pueblos. What a gorgeous area.
Mountains in Colorado. Just gorgeous.
Ah, I spent the year here, in Deer Isle. A lovely angry sky night!
I was out chasing the light one evening and ended up not where I thought I was going – I took a left and not a right – I ended up here, close to a private peer, I think. And I got some great purple light that night!
I did this lovely B&W challenge, the below was taken with my phone.
One of my FAVE months – because, face it, FALL!
2013 brought me to my clinical time in Millinocket Maine – and along with that, mine and Julia’s first real “weekend away” just a weekend in Rockland.
This Mount Kat picture now hangs as a canvas on our wall – its still one of my faves!
Shells and shells!
Me and my railroad tracks.
This was an odd day – the light was musty – then clear, then muddy again. I played with my camera settings and got this wickedly interesting shot.
The first few pictures are of TEXAS! The fun part of being in Clayton, NM was I was an hour away from OK, TX and CO.
The Balloon Fest in Albuquerque, NM was just phenomenal! Pictures just can’t hold up to the true beauty of it!
Sunrise in Clayton, NM – I had to dash over to my apartment and get my camera – was a cannot miss moment!
I decided, one Saturday, to go take a ride to find Route 66, I went to Tucomcari, NM – drove around, found a museum and enjoy cruising.
Garden of the Gods! In Colorado Springs, my birthday weekend, I knew I’d be depressed being away from home – so I booked a night away, and at 6am I was at the park. I walked, hiked, took 100s of pictures and just over all enjoyed myself. What a gorgeous area, if you are ever in CO – the place is FREE! Take the Jeep tour as well!
And sun flares!
My nephew, Rhys and I went out one day to Millinocket and took a boat load of pictures… We worked on perspective, and then he worked on his appetite.
Sunset – Deer Isle, Maine.
Always trying to find a new way to view the world.
Ah, Sept, almost fall! My fave time of the year.
These are my FIRST pictures with my Canon Rebel SX/DSLR – Previously, anything before Sept 2010 was scanned from my film photos (still a Rebel, I’m a Canon girl)
I spent 7 weeks in Milliknocket, ME doing my clinicals. The last two shots of 2013 are my first “long exposure” shots.
Fall! Up on the mountain in Lille
I was at my 1st New Mexico assignment for all of Sept of 2015 – what a great area too!
The below picture was taken atop an inactive volcano – in that view, you can see Texas in the far distance.
Sunset, flowers, and views from atop Haystack Mountain
The following few pictures of of a “photo drive” I took with my nephew that summer. We had a BLAST!
Views from Haystack!
I spent ALL of 2017 in MAINE! Down state and home.
One of my fave sunsets! I love those colors.
I bought some relatively cheap magnification/marco lens filters. Most of these are at 2x
It’s a blast to look through photos you’ve taken. Brings back a lot of memories.
We spent a weekend up at Little Madawaska Lake, and had a blast!
In 2015 I did something I never thought I’d do. I started my adventure as a traveling PTA. I interviewed for a job in early August and by late August I was driving across the country to New Mexico. To a lil burg called Clayton.
I was all over the place in 2016 – Maine, Mass, NM.
I spent ALL of 2017 in Stonington Maine, working for VNA/Hancock County Home Care – I loved it.
Every single one of those sunsets is a different night. Yup. I tell you, down east was a fun place to live for a year.
The great thing about being a Traveling PTA – well, the travel!
I adored New Mexico – vastly different than the eastern side of the US – and I’d go again (I totally want to retire in Alamogordo!)
Angry Sky – pretty much says it all!
I love working on perspective – getting down on my belly, back, looking up or down at something. We typically look at the world from one POV – standing upright and head on.
One of my VERY few cell phone pictures – and HDR’ed in photoimpact – I couldn’t miss out on this really cool looking metal and rope bell hanging there.
This was sort of my “rust” series. It’s amazing what mother nature does to the world at times.
Sand Beach, Stonington, ME – This has been my BEST selling photo. I had so many requests via Facebook that I sent along canvas prints – there are great colors in this shot!
