Bi-weekly challenge - Remember your Camera
Walk at Berry Lake set two
Of Years Gone By
Over the years have accumulated this small collection of old cameras and someday will be handed down to my children and grandchildren.
The Argus seventy-five, with the flash reflector, was my first camera back in the early fifties.
The Kodak junior six-16, bellows, was my parents camera dating back to the middle thirties.
Thanks for looking!
Bi-weekly challenge - Remember your Camera
I finally got around to remembering my cameras. These are some from my 'collection' real old ones; I don't even recall getting them, let alone using them! Moving forward a few years, this was my old set up, back during the film days. This is now my current set up. So we now have a face off, old vs new. The digital age of cameras and mixture of modern film cameras.
All shots were taken with this camera (thumb.)
I love sitting on my little country porch. Tonight I did some multi-tasking as I waited for supper to cook on the grill. Barn swallows build a nest above our front door every year. And every year I try and persuade them to relocate, but I've yet to be successful. I've come to the conclusion that if they insist on living above the door, then they'll have to put up with me. I don't think the parents liked that idea much, and I'm sure it interrupted their feeding schedule, but the babies never stirred. I sure am glad I took my camera out with me.
Setting up for the Star Party
So, I have been trying to take my camera everywhere I go. Friday night I went to a free concert in my home town, and I got several nice shots:
This last one - I will admit to using PS to enhance the effect, but this is still mostly a "genuine" picture: as near as I can tell, the girl in the center froze for a moment while everyone else was dancing.
Besides being an award winning bozo and having a highly inflated opinion of my photographic abilities, I'm also the webmaster for my astronomy club. Last night was our big public out-reach event, an annual star party. For some odd reason, they always put my wife and I in charge of the kids' program so I wasn't able to take a lot of photos (also, if you ever want to be ripped to shreds by a group of angry
nerds errr... astronomers, go ahead and use a flash to take a photo of them at their telescope!) but I did remember my camera as I wobbled over their on my bike and I took a few shots during the set up:
I hope you like them.
airplane cloud/Bi-Weekly Challenge
airplane cloud? This time I did remember my camera and came across some interesting sights.Although not in focus very well, but nonetheless cool shots.While walking up towards the cabin I noticed the sound of an airplane. Then a few minutes later I noticed... the 1rst jumper then another... 2nd jumper and quickly took another shot 2nd jumper 2 and another 2nd jumper /right above the trees and then I got sight of this.. 3rd jumper and thats when I saw this close encounter with the bird kind .and I thought I would take a shot of below my house my neighborhood/Norsjø below .To me,it reminds me of a painting.I am glad I took my camera along.

Berry Lake with my camera
Here are a collection of shots I took on my lunch hour walks. I found this place near my work I had been there two times before without my camera I missed some good photos. I have been back there three times with my camera. It’s called Berry Lake, it is a designated wet land area, with walking trails, covered bridge, lots of birds, other wild life, and many great shots.
For the challenge, Where I took my camera with me.
My boys will be going back to school soon and they wanted to go spend the night at they're Grandparents before it was too late. so they went on Sunday and I returned to get them on Monday. But before I left to pick them up I remembered to take the camera. After I picked them up I stopped to see my favorite flower lady on a back road in my home town. She sells flowers from her garden and it is a lovely garden at that. My favorite thing there is this large shed she has that has aged. My_inspiration To grow my own garden. That of which I always take my camera with me to look at all the time.One never knows what will be there. busy bees, big_bumble_bee, tiny_flower_tiny_bug and my beautiful pink_dahila_picasa2 .
Enjoy and don't forget your camera. ;)
i've been trying to shoot a bumblebee for the longest time.
they don't co-operate well and they aren't always around like my honey bee friends.
they were so interested in these blooms that this time they didn't seem to mind my intrusion. i don't think they even knew i was there.
ps... oops, i almost missed the shot. i forgot my camera when i went outside. i had to go upstairs to retrieve it. i hurried, but, i didn't really think the bee would still be there by the time i could get back. he was so, thanks mr. bee!
Remember your camera
There was a window of 7 minutes before complete cloud cover returned, by the time I got set up this is what I got
going to town
Is more involved than you'd imagine. to one who isn't used to a 20 mile one-way trip, it can be a loooong drive. But, once in town, there's things to see and of course, photograph.
There's the old judith theater in the middle of main street.
And on the way out of town, there's texaco painted on brick.
I'm not sure if I'd ever get used to being in the boonies, but small town America can be very nice. Next time I make the journey, I'll be sure to get the rolling hills of MT recorded. There's plenty of them!
