Before this I’ve never taken a night photo.  I didn’t have tripod.  I had no clue about the settings.  I winged it!

Flowers, Barns, Rusty Vehicles, and Randomness–06-25-2018

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.

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!

Brilliant Skies and Calm Waters – 06-24-2018

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.

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!

05-25-2018–Rust and Sky

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!

4-8-2018–Barns and Rust

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.

No the paint didn’t bleed!  This is just how lovely the reflection was.

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!
