First Look Photo: Rarely Seen Animal

November 22, 2017

In Maine, it is said that people can live here their entire lives and never see a rabbit.  The reason for this is simple. Eastern cottontail rabbits, like foxes, are primarily nocturnal. On occasion one might be seen during the day, but that is an extremely rare occurrence.  I found this rabbit on my way into work the other night.

Before the city of Portland paved their roads, the streets were made of brick, and I found a pot hole that revealed this fact clearly.

I keep on seeing these scarves on a line, on my way to the bus.  I find them both interesting, and colorful.

Photo Friday: Ghosting

November 10, 2017

Ghosting is a great special effect using much slower shutter speeds to blur the action of someone walking.  This one was taken at 1/20 second.

Moss on a fallen tree can be so beautiful, especially in a fern forest.

I wanted to give a waterfall a little more ethereal look, so I lowered the shutter speed to 5 seconds.
