Weekly Photo Challenge: A Tour Guide on Patrol with the Ducks

A few days ago I went looking for these guys: Only in real life, they looked like this: I was looking for them because week six on the Dogwood 52-week challenge is alternating rhythm, or to practice using light and dark to create depth and rhythm. Sunlight on the lake often creates harsh shadows which... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silence

When I set out to take photos, I often think first about which cameras I am going to take with me.  When the answer includes my Canon 50D, the next question is which lens to bring.
