I took this shot this other day, and looked it up, since I had never seen one before.  It’s a tiger swallowtail.

I’ve been away for a month, and I felt I would return in a flash.

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

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.

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!)

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.

Some people will do anything to keep the snow off their head, like this woman and her umbrella.

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.

Photo Friday: Window into History

November 17, 2017

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.
