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!
This is the best of my February’s. It’s interesting to see what I was doing in Feb of each year. Sometimes there are no pictures from certain months, and sometimes to many to pick from!
It was not often that Storm got onto the couch, usually when I wasn’t home!
I had just gotten my “newer” lens. A wider angle that was used – but worked astonishingly well.
In 2015 I began working as a traveling PTA with Alegiant Healthcare – and its taken me many different places. Colorado, Mass, all over Maine, Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico. Which is where these were taken, at the White Sands in Alamogordo. The door handle is from the Ekland Hotel and Clayton, NM
Maine! I spent a year in Deer Isle/MDI area.
Don’t let them deceive you! These flowers are very small!
But very pretty. The white sand sticks to the oils of the flowers and in the sunlight looks like star-light, and sparkle.
I could go walking here every weekend. It really is a gorgeous tapestry.
So now that I’m semi-settled – I went out on a mind escaping day today.
So it is hot in the dessert. I saw no lovely lil creatures. No snakes, no birds, nada! I was sad.
I love, love getting a great sunflare! My new lens is different than my other two. Different curve, so I am just getting the hang of it. Also, the settings work a bit differently with this camera.
I spent a lotta time on my belly while out there. Getting a different perspective. Around midday it started getting very very hot.
While the place looks deserted, its not. I am pretty sure there were at least 1000 people there. Playing frisbee, tossing footballs, sliding down dunes. I couldn’t figure out why they had magic carpets at the Walmart, there is no snow! Now I know why.
Like I said, I spent a lotta time flat on my belly. Could have taken a nap.
There are these hard sand structures, seems they build around sticks or other small objects and rise like pillars in the white sands. It is pretty cool.
There are some really cool cactus flowers that dry up and fall off, and scatter everywhere. I had some macro fun (its so nice to just have one lens).
I played with a number of settings. Which was fun and made for some interesting pictures.
The colors didn’t come in as bright as I’d hoped, but was still a blast being there as the sun ventured down.
The remainder I took with my Moto-X on the HDR setting. They came out pretty decent.
