Spot The Carp

Spot The Carp

Taken at Meadowlark Gardens earlier in the spring when I was there doing the other spring shots. This image is one of those that I don’t know why I like it but I do. The carp swimming buy just adds that little something to an otherwise boring image. I was just standing there and could see them swimming by so when one came into the frame I fired off a few shots to capture the image. Editing I am still…

Spring Trees – Part 2

Spring Trees – Part 2

This series was shot at two locations on back-to-back days. They were taken at Brookside Gardens and Meadowlark Gardens. I was playing with the Nikon D5500 and had my Sigma 24-105 on the camera. I am on travel this week as I start the final part of my journey as I move to Thailand. With all the travel I have done all the editing in one shot. I am preloading all the posts for the week so I can focus…

View At Meadowlark Gardens

View At Meadowlark Gardens

Shot this in April I believe on a visit to Meadowlark Gardens. Just liked the bench and how it looked out on the water and the trees. Like the photo from yesterday I was still out playing with the Nikon D5500 with my Sigma 24-105 on it. It was just a wander around playing with the camera and getting to know it. I never read manuals with a camera. I attempted this with my Nikon D810 but promptly bailed on…

Signs Of Spring

Signs Of Spring

With yesterday being the military hardware photo not being that popular I’ll go┬áback to a landscape shot. I needed to test a camera so I ventured forth to Brookside Gardens. I ventured out to Brookside Gardens to test a Nikon D5500 I picked up for video. The flip out screen is nice so I can see what I am shooting if I am in front of the camera. I figured since I was testing I might as well do some…

Tranquil Path

Tranquil Path

This was shot at Brookside Gardens when I was there almost a month ago. I was going to include it in a series that will be coming later this week but I really liked it as a standalone image so I am publishing it here first. For the last few images I didn’t mask anything in. What you see is what you get (mostly) out of the camera. Granted it’s heavily edited but I didn’t go wild with masks from…

Walk on the Mild Side

Walk on the Mild Side

I attended a birthday celebration on Tuesday and since it was close to where I live I tossed my Canon S100 in my pocket and walked up to the restaurant. Along the way I saw that some of the tulips survived so I figured I might as well take some shots. Hence the title, walk on the mild side since it wasn’t so wild and crazy other than some tulip photography. I did throw in one shot off my Sony…

Signs of Renewal

Signs of Renewal

Its Spring finally in the Washington DC area! That means the frigid subarctic temperatures are finally banished! Least thats the story I am going with. I have had to turn on aircon on since early March. So since I walk to work now I usually have a camera or two with me. In this case I had my Sony RX100M3 and the Canon S100. When I needed a longer reach I used the S100 since it can zoom to 100mm….

Clouds In The Distance

Clouds In The Distance

This has been my view this week in my hotel room. I came in to do some work (nap) in my room and I saw this and figured why not grab a quick shot. Shooting through a window is always fun so I hope I took out all the imperfections but the monitor isn’t the best. I return home tonight and I will have finally be able to edit properly again. Enjoy!

Still Here

Still Here

Since I am stuck trying to build a new server here at home and fighting with Windows Update and moving data from one dying to server to a new one my focus wasn’t on editing. I had this image canned and ready to go. It seemed appropriate with the dandelion’s gone to seed still there and hanging around which is more-or-less what I have been doing with a new server. So the title Still Here seemed appropriate. Enjoy.

Renewal and Faith

Renewal and Faith

So I got asked for flower pictures and my response was I didn’t have any. While I have been shooting a lot recently most of it hasn’t been published or even processed yet. One of the things I have discovered is that with my new found skills in Photoshop and finding a consistent workflow is that images I never processed because I just didn’t have the editing chops to pull it off are now becoming images I can now process….
