This was not a favored year, but still there were two photos that stood out for me. First, there was a painted lady butterfly captured almost as if it were mounted for display and, secondly, the pure joy of a rescue dog that has just been adopted. I realize you can’t tell if the dogContinue reading “2020 Favorites”
Here are a few shots of eyes for a foggy Monday.
Yesterday I was walking Teddy, the chief hunter among our three rescue dogs, when we encountered a squirrel that blended in with the growth in a front yard garden. I took a photo although I couldn’t see that well given that we were pretty far away and the subject was in the shade. I wasContinue reading “Focus on a Squirrel”
I appreciate a red door. Had one once–tough to paint. Took a photo of the “best” red door in the neighborhood this week. Looks good in uneven light. Kudos to whomever painted it.

When I pushed the shutter button, the camera moved slightly, producing the blurred action photo of…flying lemons. I’ll take it. Actually, I’ve taken a photo course where we were shown the technique of intentionally movingContinue reading “Flying Lemons…”

The onslaught of traffic and the bare branches add drama. Some say this is where sausage is made. What I remember most is howContinue reading “DC in Winter”

I have fallen briefly into the world of Adobe Photoshop. Transformed a photo of a stained glass window into a dream like image. I still prefer not using tricks to manipulate a photo, but that is probably based on how little I know about the possible processes available in Photoshop. I’ve made an exception here,Continue reading “Abstract Stained Glass…”
