Motion Blur

August 1, 2015

I’ve recently discovered how much fun it is to take photos of moving water with long exposures.   Because you have to leave the shutter open for several seconds for these shots, which lets a lot of light in, these photos were taken when it was almost dark out.   I could buy an expensive filter that would allow me to do this in the daylight, but then I’d rob the mosquitos the chance to bite me at dusk.

Whimsy in the Garden

I added some whimsical features to my garden this year and they have been really fun to photograph.

Orange blooms on the blanket flower contrast with tiny blue birdhouse.

The Beginning

July 14, 2015

As I begin this blog, I think (at this time anyway) that it will be a blog of few words and many photographs.  I love to take and share photographs and, well, we will see where this takes me.

To begin, here are a few of my favourites from the last few weeks.
