Photo Journal – Camera Log #2
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.
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.
A moody midnight shot with a slightly ominous feel at Mel’s Drive-In in Universal Studios Florida.
I was going through my collection to get a shot of an old Ford Edsel Classic at Mel’s for a client when I found a few folders of pics I had forgotten about, so I snuck in time to process one.
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.
Miss Bun-Bun has been pilfering our straw in the yard for her nest for a week now. At least she has the courtesy to do it when I have a camera sometimes.
Miss Finch stopped by for a quick click. I have been seeing a ton of males in the last couple of weeks, but very few females.
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.
A Bold and Vibrant Red-Bellied Woodpecker Posted On A Tree Stump Poses For The Camera Against Painterly Blue Skies. I tried to give this shot a sense of photorealism mixed with an artistic vibe.
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.
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.
Stepping out from the shadows and catching the light I see Mr. Titmouse is enjoying the seeds I left him the night before.
A very young robin was waddling through the grass, still unable to walk with any grace yet.
A Tufted Titmouse stopped by to accompany me for lunch one afternoon, so of coarse I had to click.
A Male House Finch Stopped By To Sing A Song From A Close Perch.
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.
