This is a little science experiment we bought for William at Mastermind. Take this little bead and soak it in water for an hour or 2….and viola!

Amazing……let it dry out and ……small again.

Water absorbing polymers.

I have taken shots of this engine on a number of occations. It is a requirement that we stop by and visit it when we are in cottage country. William would so upset if we did not visit “his” train, when we are in Haliburton, Ontario, getting supplies.
I think this black and white treatment does her justice.

I am beginning to move into a black and white phase, I think. I am looking more and more with black and white in mind.
I think I will spend a little more time in Lightroom and experimenting with the black and white settings.

Wish me luck.

Meet JC. He is a lovely huge lab. He is getting older and slowing down a lot. He still swims in that lake and fetches sticks, but maybe not as energetic as in previous years.

This one is for you, JC. You are a awesome friend to my 5 year old, William.

After a swim, just warming your old bones in the sun is a very good thing.

cheers old boy.

It is spring here in Ontario. The winter was very mild and our May weather feels more like July. Up at the cottage, the road sides are covered with huge areas awash with Trillium. I have never see so many.

I had to stop and enjoy them.

Trillium: the official flower of Ontario.

This is our cottage road. Nikita and I love it. I wander slowly listening to all the wild life and Nikita (my crazy Husky) runs around picking up smells.

This is 7 images stitched together to get the sun filtering through the leaves.

I think it captures the mood completely.

We can’t wait to get back there.

The joy of having a good polarizing filter. I held back because of the expense of it, but when they were on sale at Henry’s I jumped in. I bought one for all my lenses.

The results are very impressive, I am kicking myself for waiting so long. This shot was taken with the noon sun overhead.

Simply worth their weight is gold….really.

This is 16 images….carefully focused manually.

It fakes such a deep DoF.

Thoughts?

Now, take the same picture and treat it 2 ways. Two different results and feelings.

Zoo 158

I have to say that the colour version is nice, but I much prefer the Black and White version.

I use lightroom as a dark room product and am very happy with it.

Your opinions are encouraged.

What are your thoughts? critiques?

Zoo 154Zoo in black and white

I think I actually print and frame these.  I think the black and white versions in a black frame and a large white mat…no?

Drops 086 by Roger's Eye <(r)>
Drops 086 a photo by Roger’s Eye <(r)> on Flickr.

I try to do something a little different each week. Learning something new about my camera along the way.

I have always liked these type of shots and wanted to give it a shot :). I read a couple articles on web on how to do this, but with a 5 year old running around, building a rig for it would be an impossible task. So the next best thing was to set a slow drip on my kitchen faucet into a red wine glass and viola!

These are not great, but I think they are worth the effort.

Keys:
Manual focus – I used a ruler to focus on where the drop would land
an external flash – you will need a lot of light
empty memory card – you will be deleting a lot of missed shots
timing – luck or skill…..it is your call.
I hope to improve the results next time…..but for now I am pleased.

Thx for listening…
