Camera Card Dump #3
In Dew Time
A close up macro shot of a muted blue rose with a purple tint with morning dew droplets on the soft petals. Blue roses are often used to symbolize mystery or attaining the impossible, thus the dual play with the title.
I created this shot to fit my personal needs as I have a guest bathroom with a blue theme and I wanted something to fit a space on the wall.
Baldy In The Shadows B-W
A Bald Eagle hanging out and stalking its next prey.
I was getting the photo gallery page up for my eagle photos and art and found a lonely shot sitting in a folder I had overlooked. I love finding gems when organizing my photo catalogs 🙂
Downy Side Post With Seed
A Small Downy Woodpecker On The Side Of A Dead Tree Trunk With A Sunflower Seed.
A wild rose with an artistic flair. I was having some fun with my drawing tablet in my edits one day and liked how this one turned out.
Red Bird Pop On Green
A Male Northern Cardinal Perched Against A Blurred Backdrop Of Spring Green. The males this year seem to be brighter and bolder to me.
Leaving A Rosy Impression
I snapped a few clicks of some roses one of the neighbors had grown in their yard. I have spent the last week or so playing around with some new approaches and decided one of the rose pics would serve as a good test subject.
Oxeye Daisy on Black
A lightbox closeup detailed macro shot of a white Oxeye Daisy on a black background.
So it’s 7:58 in the morning the dogs start barking at the patio door. I peek my head out of the office and check outside, and there is Kevin. The closest thing I had was a rig with my 180mm macro lens. I was able to burst 50 or so clicks before he peeked inside noticed me, then ran off… 🤔 I guess I should wear clothes in the house 😉
Kevin Peeks From The Shadows
Kevin Soaking Up Sun
If you don’t know who Kevin is, you can check out his premier when he was seen on walking on the roof of a neighbor, and I happened to snag some pictures. Since then, I have come to learn the peacock’s name is Kevin and he got away from a local farmer.
If you followed the original post, you can see he seems to have lost some features around the neck since then. I hope that’s something natural versus a concern.

Bullet Pen and Holder
So over the last weekend, my wife and I sat around for hours and did “couples” quizzes for fun. And well, it was more than fun, it was a good relationship builder. But after being together for almost 30 years, we had to pick and hunt for questions that actually mattered. There was one question however I could not give an exact reply to, which was “What is your favorite gift I ever got you?”.
I could not really pick an exact answer to it, as I had so many different things in mind, all for different reasons. But after thinking about it for a few days, my answer is this pen. She bought it for me on our last trip to Hawaii. I certainly never would have spent that kind of money on a pen, I really did love it and the rich story and history about how each piece was, designed, sourced, and created.
I have had it at my desk, in this holder ever since, and use it every single day. And each time I pick it up, the first thing I think of is her.
