Macro Petals and Floral Visions

With fall setting in with full force the opportunities for floral shots are dwindling for the year. With that in mind, I have been buys trying to capture as many of them that I can find before they disappear for good come winter. Enjoy!

Headstones and Deer – More From Jefferson Barracks

Today’s post is a follow-up from the other day with more photographs from Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. We ended up with a lot more shots than I thought we would as the weather through the day was pretty dynamic and ever changing, there were deer everywhere and we pretty much spent the entire day there running around with camera gear. I got a chance to go through the last memory card and ended up with enough keeper shots for another post. I hope you enjoy.

Watching Over Departed Souls

Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery

We went to take photographs at Jefferson Barracks, one of the National Cemetery Administrations oldest interment sites, has served as a burial place soldiers from all wars. We were pleasantly surprised to find several deer walking in the cemetery making for some great shot opportunities while we were there! The original military post was built south of St. Louis, Mo., on the banks of the Mississippi River to replace Fort Bellefontaine. Selected for its strategic geographic location, the post was opened in 1826. Jefferson Barracks became the army’s first permanent base west of the Mississippi River. By the 1840s, it was the largest military establishment in the United States.

It’s a Black and White Photo Kinda Day

The black and white vs color debate is a rather personal choice. For every person who loves to shoot monotone there are others who prefer the vibrancy of color photography. I tend to fall in the latter bucket and love tweaking colors and pushing them for visual stimulation. But, that doesn’t mean I don’t play with some B & W. For me it tend to be mod based. Some days and some photos just have a calling for mono – today is one of those days for me.

More Minnesota Scenery

Still getting through a ton of shots we took on the last trip up to Minnesota, but I did manage to go through enough of them to get a post up. We can’t wait to get back up there this October to snag some of the lovely landscapes with a little Autumn color and foliage. Today’s post has some landscape shots, a fun bridge we found right at sunset and a few snaps from outside the condo by the pond.
