Mister Taylor’s Creative Mailbox

How’s this curb-side mailbox for creativity? Too bad the pump is not real or the mailman could stop for a drink of water.

A Red Rose

The red rose here is artificial, and sits on a table in our living room. I liked the way the adjacent table light reflected n it, and the vibrant colors present. So…I made a photo!

Lines

Title subject “lines” says it all. Sometimes you have to use your imagination when making photos, and look for what you have around you…even something so plain as these power lines can look nice of you compose it correctly.

Early Morning Glow

I used my iPhone’s camera to take make this photo of the sun rising during one of my morning walks in our neighborhood, and the way the sun was reflecting on this pampas grass bush looked very interesting to me.

Just a Blur

Trying for a “new” look. Took this out the car window (I was not driving) with a slow camera speed setting just to see what would happen when the colors blurred. An experiment only…I can do better.

Flowers Composite

I tried something different here by using Photoshop to make a composite of several images of flowers I have made over the past several months. I may try this with some of my other work just to see what I can do. So…you got to see my first try…simple as it may be.

Smoke on the Water

With my wife Barb at the wheel and me in the passenger seat driving over a bridge across the Smith River near our home late one afternoon, right after a rainstorm, I noticed that thick fog had developed on the surface of the river due to the temperature difference between the cooler air and the warmer water. Equally interesting was the bright reflection of the sunlight peeking through the clouds above…in the midst of the foggy water surface. I really like this picture…I have never seen this effect before, although I am sure it’s very common.

I asked Barb to stop on the bridge so I could get the shot I wanted and she first looked behind for oncoming cars…none were there thankfully.

Raindrops

I caught this right at the start of a heavy thunderstorm, as water was flowing over dry concrete. I especially like the rain droplets and circular patterns they made.

Back Yard Deer

We have lots of deer wandering through our back yard every day…and probably all through the night. They have no predators so they thrive, and in fact become nothing more than pests…to me anyway. But, the youngster’s spots are nice to look at. This was a “grab camera and shoot” shot, so it’s not the best focused. Still, it’s worth posting, so here you are!
