Droplets on Grass with Different Techniques

I got out yesterday and took a few minutes to photograph the droplets on the grass after the light, warm rain the night before. Those are pretty rare these days in California, so I was excited to get something different than just dry old nature. I experimented with a couple techniques, the first was traditional free-lensing, playing with different areas of focus. Those are numbers 1 and 6. Then I decided to get crazy: I turned my 35mm around, to get that super blurry/”artistic” macro style. Those are numbers 2 and 9. The rest are just taken normally. =) What do you think? Any technique your favorite?

I realize I have been absolutely horrid about posting these past couple months. I’m working on that. Maybe a Photo-a-Day in the near future? Would you be interested? Let me know in the comments! =)

Good Morning, March the First!

And good morning (or afternoon, or night, or whenever you happen to see this), readers! I’m so glad you are here to witness this, the first day of photo-a-day March 2013. And what better way to kick off the proverbial morning of a month than with some dew drops, glistening in the light of early day? (That was rhetorical, of course, because obviously there’s a lot of better stuff it could be…oh, well. 😉 )

One day down, thirty to go…


But….not the kind of reflections you may be thinking of. Or, if you happen to be thinking of a picture of a reflection of some trees that I took not long ago, then you WOULD be thinking of the right kind. Anyways, I’m rambling. Here it is, along with some others:


This photo makes me think of those creepy dream sequences people have in movies, where the sound is going in and out, and eventually it fades to black.


The awesome theater of a barn we have in our backyard (of course, who doesn’t?).





Tschüss, Leute.
