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.

On my walk home from my new job I cross the Casco Bay Bridge.  This is the view from the Bridge.

Here is the current level of the eclipse in Portland.  I just thought it would be interesting.

The good thing about cityscapes is the different angles, and lighting makes each shot unique.

I love photographing firework shows, and July 4th is the ideal day.  In the past I have been scheduled to work, or weather conditions weren’t accommodating, but this year was perfect, so I headed out.

First Look Photo: Another Angle

April 12, 2017

The Portland Headlight is the most photographed in the world.  The challenge of the headlight is to take a different shot.  This week I went to Fort Williams before the sun rise.  I found this view with a tree that I found pleasant.

First Look Photo: The Odd Duck

March 22, 2017

I found this white duck among other ducks yesterday.  I thought it was just another type of duck, but the closer I looked at the markings, especially on the head, and after looking at my book, I realized it was a white female mallard duck.  It’s a rare sighting to be sure, but albinos happen in most species, and it’s still fun to see.

I just love how the clouds have a touch of color from the morning sun.

First Look Photo: Got Milk?

February 8, 2017

I took today’s photo for a school assignment.  The idea was to Make the bottle, and glass stand out from the background.  The phrase that came to mind, when I saw the assignment, was “A touch of class in a glass.”
