I had all sorts of ideas for CCoH monthly critique theme of balance and symmetry for April. I was going to do a thumbprint. I talked to my best friend about asking her teenage twins if they’d let me photograph them which is totally outside my area. I had it in mind when I went with a friend to shoot at Biltmore. I took one of Tyler with his “broken leg” pose, a set up a marble shot, then I let the deadline go by without entering anything.
I didn’t want to go see what new naming rules the club made and change my Lightroom export profile settings. I didn’t really want the pictures of Tyler critiqued because I just couldn’t take the critiquer saying anything negative about my boy right now – no matter how constructive. Plus I just didn’t really want to share something so personal and close to my heart just yet even if I originally shot some for this theme.
Between my shoulder, our cats and hubbies schedule we sure haven’t done much hiking this year. I fetched the bear spray from my pristine camera backpack and we took off for our make up anniversary outing we postponed.
We changed the place to see and decided on Raven Cliff Falls in SC. Raven Cluff Falls is on Matthews Creek in Ceasars Head Park. It is the tallest waterfall in South Carolina, somewhere between 320 and 400 feet, depending on what you read and where they measured as it looks like the start of it could be hard to determine. Regardless of the exact size, it was a site to see. Continue reading
I just wanted to be home for all of March from grieving over the unexpected loss of our beloved Trinity and recovering from should surgery. I spent more time reading but as much as I wanted to really kick back and read, with my attention level after surgery I found it easier to binge watch Netflix. Now if Netflix would’ve just really sent me the DVD’s in the order they were in my list instead of skipping to a season we hadn’t gotten to yet that would’ve been even better. I wanted to try Audible but just never got around to figuring it out. I was content to zone out, watch TV with my hubby and love on Tyler.
Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind
Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?
So now that you’ve got that song running thru your head let me share my pics for the camera club February Gimme Your Best Shot theme- signs.
Here is my favorite one because I love the subject -even if he really needs a full bowl to be nice.
A friend, June invited me to photograph the grounds of Biltmore with her. As grand as the house itself is, the outside is more my thing… especially when I see horses. Continue reading
My pics from the super blue blood moon lunar eclipse.
The night of the 30th hubby drove me around to a few good spots after I remembered I wanted I was supposed to be outside looking up. We were a little late getting it at moonrise but it was still huge and bright.
The morning of the 31st I drove to see my first every blood moon lunar eclipse. I’ve tried many times before to see the blood moon and we’ve always been too cloudy. It was cold with a few clouds and the red blood moon was something to see. I watched the lunar eclipse right before the moon fell out of view behind a mountain.
My first set of bifocals were just not right. Over and over they told me I wasn’t looking in the right place. Trouble was I couldn’t find the right place because there wasn’t one.
I have myopia, or nearsightedness for years when in 2014 I could no longer see close up things within arms length without taking my single vision glasses off.
Aug 2013 Rx for distance only glasses was the last time I’d be happy with my glasses.
