Photo Friday: A Quiet Place to Sit

This scene struck me as peaceful.

First Look Photo: Snail’s Pace

May 24, 2017

The rain can bring out some beautiful morning creatures, like this snail.  They’re small, and hard to see when you’re not looking for them, but they make great subjects.

Photo Friday: Showing Motion

May 19, 2017

If you like doing photo assignments, or challenges, this came from the Art of Photography on YouTube.  They are worth looking at.  This challenge is to convey motion in a still image.  I’ve done this before, but the shot I took this morning was worth sharing.  I just happened across this snowy egret in Mill Cove, and waited for it to start flying; they are so graceful.  I was able to keep the eye in recognizable focus, while blurring the rest.

First Look Photo: Spring Flowers

May 17, 2017

Spring is definitely one of my favorite seasons, photographically.  It is a time of birth, and new growth, like these tulips.

Photo Friday: The Last Photograph

May 12, 2017

Today I’m showing the last Photo I took for my course with the New York Institute of Photography.  I will take more courses after I pay for this one.  This last shot was to re-photograph an ad.  I found an ad for a Dremel cordless, and I happen to have a regular Dremel tool set.

Even a partial rainbow has full beauty.

Photo Friday: A Little Snowy Egret

May 5, 2017

This is the time of the year when snowy egrets start migrating in this part of the country.  They are beautiful, and their bodies are about the size of a seagull.  Today’s shot is of the first one I’ve seen this year.

First Look Photo: Keeping it Fun and Creative

May 3, 2017

I just spent one year studying photography with the New York Institute of Photography, and learned a lot about the craft, and business of photography, but in order to keep my passion alive, I also have to keep it fun and creative.  This is why I have been learning how to use the Enlight App on my IPhone.  Today’s shot was one I created on the app.

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.
