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.

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

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.

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

Photo Friday: Back Drops

September 8, 2017

Sometimes, humid mornings bring out more than spider webs, and foggy lenses.  This particular morning, the humidity had left some water drops on the back of two Japanese beetles, which brought out the color on their wings.

First Look Photo: On the Fence

September 6, 2017

People always talk about the negative influence of man made objects on nature, but I keep coming across instances of nature using man made objects, like this spider web using a fence.
