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.

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.

This is 16 images….carefully focused manually.

It fakes such a deep DoF.

Thoughts?

Every time it snows I run out to snap a few flakes. This is tricky and cold work.

What do you get when you cross a long exposure and a guy with a pen light, and dock on a quiet lake? You draw a fisherman.

I was playing around the other day in Adobe Light Room. This is a contact sheet, but also makes a great motion study. This was a hand held shot….I think the results are pretty cool.

These guys can be tough to shoot at the best of times. This year it has been very challenging. I filled the feeder and they were at it in minutes. They seemed to spook very easily though. Sitting very still by the window did not guarentee their arrival. It almost seemed started to be a cruel joke, as they seemed to appear just after I got tired and put the camera down.

cheeky monkeys!

I am learning more and more with this lens. The depth of field is very very short, as I mentioned before. I am contrantly amazed at what it can do. This droplet is smaller than a head of a pin. Granted, I had to take quite a few shots to get it right, but I think the results speak for themselves.

More Macro goodness. This 100mm lens is a lot of fun. Very challenging when hand held. The DoF is very small and even a little waver in the subject will produce blurry results.

I am learning a lot about patience, especially on breezy days.

I think I also will need a quicker tripod.

Something simple May 24, 2011

Before a photo by Roger’s Eye on Flickr.

Something very simple can be very elegant. I have the habit of over thinking things. This problem does show up in my photography on occasion.

Sometimes it seems that I am trying to cram too much into a shot.

I was at the cottage on the weekend and I passed this bud. It stood there alone, out of place, and surrounded by short wild flowers.

It was begging to be noticed, so I did.

I think the result has a quiet dignity.

The next day it was open, so I stopped again.

After
