There was some interesting cloud action going on today. Of course I didn’t have my “real” camera with me at all today (yes, I’m dumb), and don’t yet possess one of the better camera phones on the market.
Still, I had to at least try to capture the\is coolness in the sky.
And I’m pretty impressed with how well this photo from my $20 camera turned out. Thanks Kyocera!
Isaac and I live right under the flight path for many planes coming and going from Sea-Tac Airport. We’re not close enough to the actual airport that the planes are super low, but they are definitely on the descent/ascent by the time are passing over our apartment.
Tonight as I drove home from work around 8pm I noticed what *I think* was a higher-than-normal number of planes passing overhead. I took advantage of the situation and set up my tripod in the backyard.
These are the results.
This one is my favorite
The timer stopped when the plane was still mid-frame, hence this photo where it looks as if the plane disappeared suddenly.
It was harder than I thought it would be to catch them flying near the moon…I aimed my camera at the moon, and used the moon as the focus guide. I have several shots where the plane flew just outside the frame!
The night sky was quite inviting tonight when I arrived home, so I set up the ol’ tripod and headed outside, hoping I wasn’t stepping on “doggie landmines” (not Toby’s! We clean up after our pup…) in the dark.
The clouds were clearly moving faster than I realized, since they appear blurry here. Felt like a still night to me.

I didn’t see a lot to inspire me today, just this stark tree against a blue sky.
I applied a slight vintage film effect in PSE and I like how it looks.
Thanks for stopping by.
Uh oh, it’s Friday the 13th! Anyone scared yet?
The clouds were perfect the other day and I was trying all kinds of things to capture it. Not sure if I succeeded on the sky part, but I did get a fun shot of the power poles…
Starting today I have daily challenges again!
I’m using the fat mum slim March photo a day prompts!
Today’s is “Up” and so off I went in search of things above…
taken with a florescent filter, I thought the effect was kind of interesting looking.
I'm pretty sure this crow was either having a conversation with or an argument with the two little yappy dogs in the yard below.

Oh! I almost forgot, I finally set up my Etsy storefront! I have some of my photography on notecards for sale, that you can see, here.
I’m hoping. And judging by this sunset, Mother Nature is looking forward to spring too.
Spring is coming!
I’m starting to get more brave with Photoshop. I added the watermark. I erased all the power lines cutting across the sunset. Turns out, clouds don’t need to be a certain shape to look untouched! :D
I found another blog with -what looks like- monthly photography challenges! I was searching for more of these, to give me guidance as I struggle to be creative on a daily basis for the 365 photo project. I’m so happy to have found this site!
Keep up the good work, fatmumslim.com.au!
And…a photo! Hurray!
