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.

Photo Friday: A Winter’s Perspective

Strangely enough, I love winter pictures in black and white.  This shot was taken during the second snow storm to hit the Portland area this season.

The best thing about living so close to the ocean is all the things you can see from fishing industries.

This is an appetizing building with a tasty history.

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.

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.

We have a few chipmunks living in the rocks in the gazeebo out side our building.  I found this one watching me come home from work.

Photo Friday: Recycled Material

November 18, 2016

Litter is a problem we’ve had to deal with for a very long time.  The government has passed laws imposing heavy fines, and established a time, like Earth day, to help solve this problem.  While these measures have helped to reduce the problem, it still continues.

We already know the down side to this litter problem, but is there an up side?  Nature has made use of our waste material.  The oceans are littered with ships, and other wreckage,  of which the oceans are making use.  Today’s picture is another way nature has taken our litter, and turned it into something it can use.  This bird nest has turned what looks like a plastic bag into a liner to help strengthen the nest.

It’s been a while since I posted one of my photos, but I took this one yesterday, and it was so special to me I felt the need to post it.  I hope you all enjoy it.  I decided it would look better in Black and white.

Now that I’ve given the lamest excuse not to go to the gym, now let me give you the best reason to join one.
