Photo Friday: Night Landscape

October 13, 2017

Landscape photography is photographing a space in which the space itself becomes the subject.  The space can be as vast as a desert or ocean, or miniature like the head of a pin.  It just has to be a space.

Today’s picture was taken off the top of the Casco Bay Bridge.  I took it at night as a fog rolled in.

First look Photo: New Lens, Last Chance

October 11, 2017

I was hoping to get a 300 mm lens before the egrets left for the season, and it looks like I got that chance.
This is a morning shot of a great egret hunting for food.

I love the glow the street light cast on this sidewalk.

Today’s photo is of a place that seems mostly inactive until the sun goes down.  One side of the street is made up entirely of bars.

Photo Friday: All About the Lights

September 29, 2017

I recently changed jobs, and that means the pictures I can take to and from work has been extended to the city.  I wanted to get a nice shot of the city building tower, at night without flash, and this is my result.  I increased the ISO to 3200 and adjusted the exposure to compensate.

City Tower

I love the way the lights play on the architecture, and bring out the texture of the building.

First Look Photo: Leading the Pack

September 27, 2017

Every year South Portland has a bike event for charity, and I am always walking home during the race.  Once again, I was ready when the Colorado riders were riding by.

On my walk home from my new job I cross the Casco Bay Bridge.  This is the view from the Bridge.

Once again it’s cruise ship season in Portland, and catching one coming in during sunrise is special.

Photo Friday: Framed

September 15, 2017

The Art of Photography, on YouTube, posted a challenge about framing the subject, and I found this guy biking in Portland between two signs.  The color in the signs are too distracting, so I changed it to black and white.

First Look Photo: Collecting Bottles

September 14, 2017

I found this woman collecting bottles in Portland.  It Reminded me of  some of the street photography seen on Digital rev.
