First Look Photo: Forgotten Toy

January 31, 2018

We all have things we are attached to, like the toys of our childhood, but as time goes on that attachment fades, and is quickly replaced by something else.

January 26, 2018

Wanting to try something different, I decided to photograph a flag next to a building, from the base of the flag pole.

Photo Friday: Leading Lines

January 19, 2018

This week, I had a convergence of photo assignments.  Both my school, and website challenge called for leading lines.  Here is my response.  I love how the sled contrasts with the rest of the scene.

People talk about the path to your dreams, but how about a dreamy path.

Photo Friday: Available Light

January 12, 2018

The last time I tried to photograph one of these nocturnal rabbits, I had to use flash which caused a horrible case of red eye.  This time, I was privileged to capture another rabbit in front of a lit sign, without cropping.

First look Photo: In the Mist

January 10, 2018

Thanks to the sub-zero temperatures, recently, Casco Bay has been shrouded in a mist of sea smoke.  This shot was taken during a temperature of -6.  The mist wasn’t quite so heavy, and looked almost haunting.

Photo Friday: A Non Cliché Selfie

January 5, 2018

Photography is full of clichés.  Selfies are among the worst, however, you can change that by a simple shift of viewpoint.  Most selfies have a standard straight on view, with the ugliest expression, aka a duck face.  When you take a selfie, have a purpose.  Today’s shot is a selfie of me in my little workspace at home.

I will never use a duck face. (ew!)

First Look Photo: Out of the Mist

January 3, 2018

Thanks to the biting cold in Portland, Maine steam rises from the tops of buildings, making for very interesting photographic opportunities.
