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.
The first photo critique for the camera club in 2018 is the theme patterns. We actually had this same theme last January too. See my photos for that post here. These are the three I chose to have critiqued. Now I had a pen in hand to write what Jeff Miller said when about each image but to keep from disturbing others I didn’t turn the little light on my pen and it was pretty hard to make out what I wrote.
On the frozen soap bubble, he said something about the reflection. See my full post on those here. https://kimberlyhmaxwell.wordpress.com/2018/01/19/frozen/ Continue reading
Frozen bubbles, frozen waterfalls, frozen nose and frozen fingers.
Sometime around fall, a friend posted a photo of a frozen soap bubble and I immediately added it to my “want-to-shoot list” of stuff I wanted to try. (Thanks Kathi).
I’m unsubscribing and deleting all sorts of stuff and boy does it feel great.
Here are a few photos from 2017 that were never shared. If nothing else it’s kinda nice to look back on some summer photos when it’s cold outside. Mostly a hodgepodge but there’s a short story to the grainy hawk photo.
