Happy New Year!

1 January 2009

Stoaty likes to post “a picture of the last light of the year on New Year’s Eve,” but I’m generally a morning person, so I like to shoot the first light of the new year.

I didn’t get out for a proper shoot this year, because I was geared up for snow removal (from a storm that didn’t materialize). So I cheated. I just stepped outside my door and took some quick snapshots of the high school across the street in silhouette, and then of the snow-bound football field. The brief exposure to the 5-degree temperature numbed my fingers and made ’em hurt like heck when they started to thaw.

The other day, I found a link to one of those sites that “rate” your blog for you. This one came out as a “G,” I think, with a note that one post had used the word “shoot” once. I dunno how to talk about photography without using the word “shoot,” nor do I want to. Strange that a normal activity, like shooting (whether with a camera or weapon), could be the cause of concern to some. More PC intrusion in our lives.



Happy New Year!

Ok, I got lazy this morning and asked other people to choose which images from this morning’s shoot I should post. Here they are, with a minimum of comment, because another storm is moving in and I gotta finish my errands before the snow flies.

Ooo! The colors!

I’m also too lazy to narrow it down to a reasonable amount, so y’all got a bonus today. Try not to remember all the days I didn’t post images.

Another View

Yesterday’s crocus, done at dawn this morning, with more care taken in the shooting.

Kinda funny exposure, giving it a Mean Green Mutha From Outer Space feel. Except it’s not green. And the closest it’s been to outer space was when it went into free fall when I tossed the bulb into the back of my truck.


It took me almost an hour to post this. WordPress kept telling me it was uploading the pic, but nothing showed. The mysteries of the intertubes…

Moon Over Miami

27 March 2007

A blast from the past. I just came across this one as I was searching for something else in my archives. Shot at dawn from Miami Beach, looking west, towards Miami. I used a long lens to compress the perspective. This is a slide that I later scanned into the computer.
