A gorgeous field of Lupines! Taken along route 161.

The light started to change and I ventured out into the back yard to take a few photos – all of these were taken w/in 20 or so minutes and all in my back yard.
A few shots of the Iris’ and the blooms on Jules apple tree.
The potato fields right out back from my house.
There is our super humble abode – and a wickedly awesome sunset.
I had to lighten these up a little to get the details out
Moving into the side yard – when the light started to change again.
My beloved railroad tracks. And, hello there, Canada.
And lastly, my fence. I wasn’t ever planning on putting up a fence but – you know – unruly neighbors – but no that it’s there, I love it! It gives me a fun spot to take photos off and giving me some contrast and texture in my photos.
The kids and I took an afternoon adventure last week, scouting out Milky Way spots for next week. And we got some pictures along the way.
We hit up a few abandoned houses – which is a thing Rhys loves to do. I also snagged some flower shots.
We visited a fave abandoned house on Rt 161 – and its slowly falling apart more and more.
This was the first time we brought my niece, Vivian with us. Once we left the first abandoned house, all she did was talk about the “dead bodies” in the house. Rhys and I got a good laugh about it.
I took out my camera on a rainy day and attempted to get some lightening photos. Nada!
I’m not working at the moment, so when my sister in law’s kids were not going to school. I said “I’ll help!”
My SIL has some great props around the house, so today whilst my niece and nephew were doing homework, I took out the camera.
My niece, Vivian, started to rummage in my camera bag and found all my legos. We went over all the names, and how to sound them out (She’s 4) – and after a while, I sat by the Typewriter and she brought me each super hero – and we sounded out their names, and she found the 1st letter than correlated to the superhero’s name. We gotta get creative, right?
So to all the moms and dads who are struggling w/the kids being at home – we got this. We can all pitch in and support each other from afar and – well, we got this. Until them – Dream Big
Before this I’ve never taken a night photo. I didn’t have tripod. I had no clue about the settings. I winged it!
I hit up Caribou and Presque Isle today, just cuz an met up with my friend, Kasey for lunch. On the drive home I decided to pull over and take a few pictures.
My next stop! Lupins on the side of the road.
After the lupins, I made a quick pit stop at an abandoned building for a few snaps.
Old Trucks and even older Fire Trucks was the next stop on the side of the road. I have myself less than 10 mins to shoot what I wanted. Forces me to be innovated and an economy of shots!
My last stop was a few pictures of an old red barn in Van Buren.
I was sitting in my living room when I saw the light outside changing. I chase the light often, and I had a good feeling. Off I went!
I literally jogged to the river last night. I’d turn, snap a few pictures. Jog while fiddling with settings. Turn. Snap a few pictures.
It’s rare we get those great purples up here, and getting the cast reflection from the sky on the rail was an interesting endeavor!
They sky changes quickly. One minute you see purples, the next the sky is on fire with orange and reds.
I finally got off the tracks and started the 2nd leg of my job down the potato field road to the water.
I headed up to my cousin, Bonnie’s place, for some shallots. And snagged theses pics.
B&W or Color?
If you look around, you never know what you’ll see or find. A run down house can be extraordinary. A singular, old mailbox, can be stunning.
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!
