Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows

I'll admit I think slightly odd things at times. Like when I first saw this scene: All these beautiful planes looking out the window toward the airfield, like they would like to go out and play. So when I wanted to capture that thought, I went to the back of the hanger and shot out... Continue Reading →


Weekly Photo Challenge: Time

I enjoy walking through graveyards, but that was not what I was doing this past week when I saw this grave marker: I was walking through a garden at the time, and this grave marker just happened to be in it.  I was happy to have my longer lens with me so as not to... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape

I went biking this past weekend and was thinking about this week's photo challenge, escape.  I guess going biking was a way of escaping the housework.  Maybe this sounds crazy, but I think both being outside and cleaning the house are necessary things that I don't want to escape.  Then I biked past this flower...

When Nature gives you a Pattern, Wear It

I recently finished a series of 10 images for a photography class I was taking.  All of the images are of birds.  Here is a Eurasian Eagle-Owl: The pattern of feathers help the owl blend in with its surroundings. For this particular series of photos, I rented a 70-300mm lens.  I did also use a... Continue Reading →
