Photo Friday: It Must be Rain Drops

April 28, 2017

I took this photo on my way to the store.  It was so peaceful I wanted to remember it.

First Look Photo: Different Kind of Paper

April 26, 2017

Today’s picture is of paper tree bark.  The importance of this bark is it used to be used as paper to write on; of course this was before they had paper mills.

The brilliant male cardinals have been going at the mating game, and all I hear when I walk outside is that familiar call of spring.

First Look Photo: Winding Down, and Up

April 19, 2017

As I start the last photo assignment for the professional course at New York Institute of Photography, I am happy to note that this is not the end of my education, but the beginning.

My career in the photo industry is about to begin, maybe not today, but soon, and I know the need for continued education will be a key to my growth as a photographer, and eventual success of all I dream my career can be.

With that, here is today’s photo from my last assignment, there are going to be two more, but I haven’t taken them yet.

Photo Friday: First Bloom

April 14, 2017

This flower is the first one I’ve seen blooming this spring.  This is another great reminder that Spring has finally arrived in Maine.

First Look Photo: Another Angle

April 12, 2017

The Portland Headlight is the most photographed in the world.  The challenge of the headlight is to take a different shot.  This week I went to Fort Williams before the sun rise.  I found this view with a tree that I found pleasant.

Photo Friday: What a Loon

April 7, 2017

Loons spend the Winter in the bays, and coast line, and move to lakes and rivers for nesting during the Spring.  I caught this one right before it moved out of Casco Bay for its fresh water home.

First look photo: City Lights.

April 5, 2017

When it comes to capturing city lights, most people wait too long.  The best time is just after dusk, when the lights can be clearly seen, but there is still a little light in the sky.

IMG_0174I’ve started having fun, on instagram,  with photo puzzles.  I take pictures of everyday objects in an abstract way, and the viewer has to guess what they are.  Here is today’s.

 

First Look Photo: Spring Birds are Back

March 29, 2017

At the close of every Winter, there are several signs that the Spring weather is here to stay.  The cardinals singing is one of them, but the next sign is the return of the Spring birds, of which the Cedar Waxwing is one of them.  I spotted this one on Sunday, on my walk home.
