Found Glory

Oh how I love my macro lens. Makes dealing with all the leaves in the yard kind of bearable. I used a tripod for all the shots. If you can remove the center post of your tripod, I recommend doing it if you like to get close to the ground. I don’t use my beanbag as much now I have a tripod that can go all the way down. I also played in the light, looking for very subtle backlighting.

Laughing pill

Infectious Grooves

Playing with shadows is a lot of fun, too. I had to work fast for this one, but in the end I beat the sun as it sunk behind my house. Sure, there was always tomorrow, but I kind of like working against a clock. Of sorts.

Wishing

Falling Up

I couldn’t help turning a couple of the images upside down. Although the light and bokeh are striking, I think inverting the shot just makes it a bit more eye-catching. And we can’t do the same things all the time, now can we?


The Alchemy of Autumn

Alchemy is the ancient “science” of turning mundane elements into gold. For a long time many people (including Sir Isaac Newton) believed it was just a matter of time before they had success. As far as I know, it has never worked. Except maybe it has.

I feel like Andy Warhol

A Golden Moment


There Will Come Soft Rains

After a colorless winter and a dive straight into spring with all its rainbow colors, I sometimes come off a color binge and process a series of monochrome images. Usually I try for something with lots of interesting texture and a definitive structure and these leaves are perfect.  I have no idea what they are, but I like them and the water still clinging after the rain is what makes the images really work.  At least to me.  All shot w/the OM 90mm macro at varying apertures.

No Particular Night or Morning

The Day it Rained Forever

And if you can figure out where the titles come from and why I used them now (without Googling) you get bonus points!


Strangest Thing

The immortal last words of McManus (The Usual Suspects) perfectly describe what’s happening with this picture on flickr –

Altered States

I put it up a few hours ago and it’s had a hundred views coming from an unknown source.  The Unknown source gag is something that frustrates the crap out of me with flickr.  I’ve put a comment in asking if someone could tell me from whence they all come, but so far nothing.  Strangest thing.


With Unpredictable Results

Fall is one of the most productive…well, if I can call it that, times for me as a photographer.  There are so many things that catch my eye and the season is so volatile that there is a surprise almost every day.  Here’s a few of my favorite catches.

Early in October things are still relatively mild and all kinds of delicate things still thrive –

A delicate foothold

But as unexpected things go, one of the prettiest is this –

Clash of seasons

Nowhere to hide

It’s pretty, but so, so destructive, too –

How the mighty have fallen

But at this time of year, it doesn’t last –

a brook with no name

and paradise returns –

Not far from the tree

but the mystery doesn’t end –

of earth and smoke
