I was on a photowalk with a photography student friend on assignment to experiment with depth of field, so I decided to play, too.

Photo of the Day: Guzzled

Tags

, , , , , , ,

One thing about me: I’m a noticer.  I’m the one that points out all the weird, random things, stuff that doesn’t belong, hilarious ironic things, people doing strange things.  I’ve often considered creating a blog of just that kind of absurdity, but I can barely bring myself to maintain this blog.

Among the myriad of signs off Columbus boulevard in Philly, I just happened to look up and notice this.  I’m sure there’s some political statement I’m probably missing (I said I was a noticer, not a knower) so maybe one of my readers can fill me in.

This is a one dimensional applique found on a window in Philly. The additional images are reflections off the other pane of glass and the solid draping behind them.

Experiments in Portraiture

I have finally decided to focus my energies into a new project, rather than just taking random photos (although I will still do that, I’m sure).

Before I can get this fully off the ground, I need to practice working with models. This is very new to me! I have a beautiful friend, who, being a model took some pressure off of me for the finer details of getting a good body angle and bonus, she LOVES the camera. And the camera loves her back.

I will happily take any constructive criticism, from portrait photographers most especially!

Michael’s Garden

7 years ago I married my best friend, but it was also the start of a great friendship… with my florist!  Unsurprisingly, his garden proved to be as unique and extraordinary as he is. He provided the names of all the flowers as I am horticulturally challenged 🙂

A swamp milkweed. As a friend pointed out, it looks like tiny skulls. I see little storm troopers.

and last but not least, wasps who have made their home in this tree for three years. Such a beautiful hive.
