The edge of morning

The right place at the right time. As the sunrise makes its way across the face of the planet I got lucky and caught the contrast of the sun shining brightly on the mountains to the west. The closer mountain had not yet dressed itself in the white of sunlight making for a nice shot of a crisp, cold... Sign in to see full entry.

Good morning

The sun’s rays come in flat offering a light not seen in midday. This photo, taken in 1968 when I was home on leave from the Air Force was early morning. The full moon is seen retreating behind the mountain. I decided to frame the moon in the branches of the tree in our front yard, mostly because it... Sign in to see full entry.

Slide headfirst.

Often, newfangled technology seems a bit daunting. I have had my new scanner for nearly two years and yet I have barely explored it’s color slide scanning ability. If you are an avid photographer of a certain age, chances are you have box upon box of slides gathering dust in a closet somewhere. I... Sign in to see full entry.

Add some color...

The same scene, fall and winter versions makes one appreciate the display we know as the autumn colors. The next two shots, while not exactly framed the same are of the same stand of poplar trees. Somewhere in my collection, I have a better shot, I just can't seem to find it right now. A key to... Sign in to see full entry.

Winter through the lens

Colors seem to disappear. Details seems washed out. Winter is a great opportunity for photographers but it isn't without it's pitfalls, Harry. For the next shot I decided to contrast the blue of our wind steamer with the seeming monochrome landscape. Of course, our old friend, depth of field, popped... Sign in to see full entry.

Seasonal themes

I know, some say not to put hats on pets, but you gotta admit Santa Leroy looks the part and he wasn't coerced in any way. Winter is for the birds and I'm sure the birds that live here probably agree with me. There is more snow on the house now, I just need to get a break from shoveling to take the...

Digital road maps...

Look at these photos. What is it? It is the magnetron out of our microwave. Why did I take a photo of it? To have a record that shows what it looks like and the part number printed on it. Now check out these shots. I took the microwave apart and needed a reference to know how to put it back... Sign in to see full entry.

Pet photos, fun for all

Photos that purr or bark? Your pets, the animals you know best make good subjects since you know what they are likely to do and what cute poses they strike. These two, the calico the mother and the white one her son, used to sit for hours on our lap blankets. So it was easy to catch them together,... Sign in to see full entry.

Fire and ice

Lawn chairs and a fire pit are the stuff a summer evening is made of. But in the winter it offers a stark contrast with snow piled on the chairs, the firewood and everywhere. It always amuses me to take photos of summer settings when covered with fresh snow. These were at the lodge where we went for... Sign in to see full entry.

Winter, a time of contrasts

This morning we woke up to eight inches of snow, for once the weather predictions were right. After a round of shoveling, it was time to come in and sit by the fire with the cat. After I warm up I bit, I will look outside and think of the beauty of snow and how it makes me appreciate that fire. Sign in to see full entry.
