208/365-2 The Right Tool


Sometimes your fingers are the best tools around.

Brooke made blueberry and nectarine muffins tonight.  The muffins were much better than my photo!

We are trying to get ready for another trip to Delaware so I didn't have much time ti give to this tonight.

207/365-2 July Portrait - Silhouette

"Sunshine On His Shoulders"

It is a good thing that today's portrait was supposed to be a silhouette.  I'm not sure my subject was thrilled with having to model today so hiding his facial expression was probably a good thing.  But look!  God gave him a halo for his efforts.  Most of the time he is a pretty good sport and for that I am extremely grateful.

206/365-2 Chain Link Fence

"Pick Me"

I had other thoughts for today's photo, but when I was outside working on those, Harley kept following me around the fence.  I snapped this one on a whim.  Harley is going to put it in her personal portfolio in case she ever decides to apply for a spot on one of those Sarah McClachlan animal cruelty commercials.  This expression illustrates what a fine actress Harley really is.  She was outside behind the fence less than five minutes before she assumed her position back on the couch in the air-conditioning.

Here is the somewhat more cheerful (and boring) fence picture, though the vine (weed) crawling through it is kind of cool.

205/365-2 In A Jar

"Color My World"

I am suffering from a serious lack of creativity today so this is as good as it gets.  Sorry!

204/365-2 The Number 3

"Three Is Company"

I forgot to post this yesterday...probably because I was not happy with the results.  I had a vision of how I wanted this shot to look and I just couldn't make it happen.  Oh well...

The shirt sums up perfectly how things roll at our house.  It is even funnier because Weber bought this T-shirt on our honeymoon when we visited Dog Mountain.  From day one the dog has been in charge.

203/365-2 Luminosity


I am not sure that I hit today's prompt of "luminosity" with this prompt though that is what I was hoping for.  This was taken on a busy corner not far from our house where there are many office buildings.  They are all different colors and textures and several of them are mirrored.  When the light is right, this location makes for some kind of cool shots.

The evening light was a little strange tonight.  The "golden hour" did not have much gold to it.  The coloration in this is the result off the sun bouncing off and reflecting onto the various buildings.  I do like all the lines and shapes here.

Perhaps my thoughts were more on just that...lines.  I am also taking a phone photography class.  The current assignment is on photographing lines.  Today's added challenge was to create a black and white photo where the lines are strong.

This is the front of the building that houses the above arch.  In fact the white in the far left of the frame below is the part of the arch that is just out of the frame to the right in the above image.  To me this looks like a slightly more complex Mondrian painting.  This image was taken and converted to black and white with my phone.

202/365 Hidden Treasures

"Angel in the Grass"

Though I try to keep my chin up and stay positive, every now and then looking down reveals a surprise.
