I worked late this evening, and as is my typical MO, I came home and sat down. KNOWING I still had not taken an acceptable photo yet today.
Eventually my will to successfully complete a year’s worth of photos overrode my desire to remain sitting in a comfy chair and I headed outside.
I should have grabbed my tripod on the way, but didn’t.
I found this new blossom on my bean plant, and tried my laziest best (haha) to get a photo in the dim porch light.
This is me, not breathing:
And I totally cheated. I was lazy, as aforementioned, and didn’t get my tripod out. Instead, I turned on the porch light, cranked up the ISO, and held my breath.
I stopped by an estate sale on my way home from work the other day and found (thanks to the 40+ years hoarding habit of the owner) a handful of colorful glass bottles and two older cameras. One of the cameras, an argus argoflex is seriously rusty and probably won’t be taking any more photos in its lifetime. The other, a Kodak pocket Instamatic 10 still had film in it, with about 4 photos left on the roll. I want to find a place that will develop it, who knows how long that film has been in there! I’m so curious.
(this is the same camera, not to be confused by my mention of two different cameras above)
The bottles, though not likely worth money, vary in size, color, shape, and age. Some still have bits of the labels still attached, and one still has a dark colored liquid in it! :o I’m not going to open it to find out whats in there though!
I think they’ll be fun for some still-life photography, as well as to practice my lighting techniques on.
The light coming through the window was looking very nice
I liked how much texture this board offered, and the light hitting the rivet heads.
I didn’t take any photos today that I am particularly proud to share on their own merit, but I was able to play around in pse to create an interesting version of a photo I took today.
Here is the SOOC:
And this is what I created from it:
I liked how the light was falling as I walked the dog at almost-sunset.
Actually, just singular mushroom.
Though I did find many, of several different varieties, all within about 20 feet of my door!

…And with a great rumbling of thunder, and sudden downpour, I think it’s time to make a new light box. :)
You’re going to be seeing a lot of these in the new few weeks. Bear with me. They’re so beautiful! How can I not take their photos everyday?
The leaves are starting to fall, and I loved how the light was coming though this particular one.
