When a girl is bored!

I was working on shadows, and light, and using the white background to my advantage.

Picking up things around the house and making for a scene is a good stretch of imagination.

I do like the glitter.  I don’t know why – it does capture great on “film”.

The background is some cooking implement I found at the bottom of the cabinets.  And my lego heroes!  The rainbow is popsicle sticks that I glued to a backboard.

I wanted to run a test on what the dominos look like in the light and how shadowy they get, and how well they rebound light.

The coils? Cat toys.  My mini buckets and a bag of marbles I bought at the dollar store.

My popsicle stick background.  My keys.  Smile

A ring my wife bought me ages ago.  I wanted to see if I could capture the green reflection on the gold.

I’ve some crystals hiding around and the sun was hitting it just right to capture the rainbows on the white background. 

T-t-thats all folks!

Moose!  This is a little one.  This is a scanned photo, in fact, I had my old film Rebel with  me this day.

2016

When I came back from New Mexico, I had gotten a new lens – since I hike, and need to haul water, etc with  me.  I wanted a more “all in one” lens.  I picked up a Tamron 18-270mm.  It’s a midgrade lens, and sometimes you get some noise.  The editing program I use though, I can easily get rid of the noise.  This is one of my first shots with it.  I really love the lens.

ECHO!  The newest addition to our family (and the LSAT for a while) – yeah, if ONLY she stayed this size!

A lot about photography is about timing, and sometimes luck!  I was lucky to spend time in the MidCoast area, and the rainbow shots were 1000% luck of timing.

Aw, winter months!  The world looks far different when it’s covered in white and cold.

Perspective. 

Remy and Storm. 

Remy is our resident flirt and Storm was our “big dog” for 15 years.  She wasn’t a jump on the couch when we were there, but she did like to stick her nose up over the edge and give you “that look”.

2016

2016 brought me back to New Mexico, a job fell through, and back I went.  Not to northern NM, but more south. 

No.  Snow!

So this guy!  I was staying at an RV site, what had tiny cabins (awesome deal, btw!!) – and caught a glimpse of something behind my car before taking off for a day of exploring.  You got it – a peacock!

Space museum – a cool afternoon, and a wicked looking building – the reflection was great!  I never got around to going there at sunset.

Some hiking pics – an old 1800s train track – and the Carlsbad Caverns (which was cool!)

My romantic wife sent me flowers and, of course, that I had to take a picture.

Chasing Rainbows

Last night, as I was making a quick supper, I look outside to see a brilliant rainbow.  Now, we all know they don’t last long.  So I snapped a few quick pictures and darted onto my ATV and drive up to the overlook on the Mountain.  A few snaps of what I took. (and a few of the sunrise that morning)
