Haven't been doing much photography or been on site for a while but the other day I thought about doing some printing of some shots from last year and came across this one portrait of my step-daughter. C'est moi
Updates from the farm...
1) my lil red hen house is finally finished and in place. the chickeys are very pleased and so am i. it's so much more than i expected. thanks, honey, for all your hard work and designs.
3) this last one irks me a bit. they say it's all in the name of progress for the future needs and benefits of all central texans. somehow, i don't think the natives would agree. i usually don't like to shout and i always try to look for the good, but, DANG IT! EMINENT DOMAIN REALLY SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(ps...i know it's blown out. it was an overcast day, and i ended up stepping off into a deep hole on my next shot. so, .......always remember to look at your feet when you move.....instead of your next shot. or, your shoot may be over sooner than you expect!)
Mono Challenge Story
Shot over a couple of days here on the North Shore/Cape Ann in Massachusetts. This one has its problems because I shot it through glass. It's a room in what used to be a gatehouse of a large estate that is now a public park in Beverly. Gatehouse Ballroom
This was pretty ugly but I liked the way it looked anyway. I had to lay down next to the tracks to make the picture and scared my wife who was waiting in the car, but didn't see me lie down. She looked up to see me sprawled on the ground and started shouting to me. fall tracks
Happy Easter - Monochromatically Speaking
I've been in Florida working the past couple of weeks and there's nothing more monochromatic than northwest Florida sand, so fine timing on the challenge, Les. I like the ripples in the sand here, cross-hatched by the shadows from the fence. And, yes, this is sand, not snow. They look similar, but this is much warmer and makes really crappy snowballs.
And on a completely different subject, there's blue. Any guesses on what this is?
And on yet another completely different subject having nothing whatsoever to do with the challenge, I thought I'd toss in a couple of shots from last week of two of my granddaughters in the azalea bush. This is Alana, and this is Olivia.
Hoppy Easter to all!
San Jacinto Battleground
On April 21st, the battleground park celebrates San Jacinto Day -- it's the day Texas achieved its independence from Mexico. The battleground is where the Trinity River empties in to Trinity Bay and is set in the middle of any number of oil refineries. Often I frame my photos to hide the industry; sometimes I don't.
Sorry I am hit or miss here been working lots of long hrs. But this pic Wedding Canyon, Colorado National Monument , Is one that will be in the new brochure for the monument,in color though but I do like in black and white.Still haven't heard about calendar yet.

2 for the challenging challenge
I found this challenge....well, challenging. I generally look for lines and shapes as opposed to colors (as you can tell from the shots). And I wanted to follow the spirit of the challenge and not simply convert something to black and white. Here's what I came up with after a quick walk this evening...
These aren't my favorite shots, but it was a good exercise for me to actively look for color and try something new. Thanks for pushing a different side of my brain!
