A Visual Photo Blog Of My Journey Behind A Lens Through Life, Mostly Nature and Wildlife Scentric, But I’ll Click a Shot of Anything that Catches my Eye.
Camera Card Dump #2
Well, it's that time again to fulfill my self promise to make sure I post something on a regular basis. In this dump, I have mostly birds including eagles, robins, titmice, finches, and a nuthatch. There are also a few floral art shots and some updates to the photo collection pages here on the site.
I think I must have been in a romantic mood or something when processing this tulip shot, as it has a bit more delicate feel than my typical work. It’s definitely my favorite piece since my last camera dump. I mean as an “artist”, when naming things, there are several titles that come to mind that everyone wants to use. ‘Surrender‘ is one such title, and I have come close to using it before, but the work never quite came up to the level of being worthy. This one I feel is deserving of the name in my collection.
The wife got me some flowers while she was ou one day, a small bouquet of mums and carnations. I spent some quality time with them, a macro lens, and the lightbox. In the end, I got several decent shots I think. Hopefully, I will have time to process more of them soon, but this one was calling me to play with immediately 🙂
I think this may be a fun one to play with down the line to make a mini-collection from don in various tones. If I start getting any decent sales on it I may have to consider it.
A White-Breasted Nuthatch seemingly followed me around the entire time while I was doing yard work. Long enough for me to go in, grab a camera, and get back our for a click. This is a very typical pose for a nuthatch, which most people recognize them by first; over any other detail.
I really do just love watching woodpeckers behind a lens as they bring bright colors and entertaining action so there is never a slow moment. I often see them flying quickly and erratically through the trees, and then abruptly changing direction to align for an instant, only to immediately take off again.
A Tufted Morning Hello
Mr. Titmouse decided to accompany me while I was enjoying my coffee on the deck one morning, and he certainly set the pace for a great day.
When I decided to get this site up and running again, there were only a few items I wanted to make sure I replicated as they were popular pages (at least for my site). One of those posts was a list of 10 things people might not know about eagles. While I was getting the shots together to go along with it, I found a folder with some eagle photographs I had never processed. Here are a few that were worthy of me playing around with.
In an effort to get some more of my photos up and organized I took some time to get the photo collection pages for both Broemmelsiek Park, and Klondike Park up and organized with some older as well as newer shots.
Well I think that about sums up what has happened here on the site and catalogs my camera dump for the past week or so. I’m not sure what you will find on the next post, but I am feeling a bit in a macro mood, so I think I will be doing some critter hunting, and a lot of getting my pants dirty.
My wife bought a camera just a month after I did, and it is delightful to have a new hobby that we can enjoy and grow together after 25 years of marriage. Being able to explore and enjoy the outdoors, nature, and local beauty together as a shared passion keeps us strong and interested in each other and exploring the subtleties and beauty the world has to offer.
