For the past several years I’ve begun my day by making at least one photo before I brew my coffee. A few days ago I walked outside to retrieve the morning newspaper in our street-side mailbox, with camera in hand in case I spotted an interesting composition. Area limited as it was. This photo was the result. I used manual focus, hand-held, to make sure the spiderweb and dew droplets were clearly visible.
Summer thunderstorms this year have been creating many interesting photo opportunities for me.
August isn’t a month of seasonal change, but this abstract photo hints that Fall isn’t that far away here in SW Virginia.
While walking alongside a local river yesterday I saw many colorful photo opportunities being reflected in the water. I used a Fujifilm 55-200mm lens.
Here’s a mix of different themed photos I recently made. All with wonderful Fujifim mirrorless gear.
Making landscape photos has been my primary interest in photography for many years. In some locations its hard not to find a great composition. Alaska for example. But we photo enthusiasts are often challenged to “find, compose and click.” That’s where I am right now as my travel opportunities have been limited for many reasons. So, I adapt.
Sometimes I’m limited by location when it comes to photo opportunities. Traveling to places where there may be unlimited possibilities is great, but I find that’s not as simple as it once was given age and health. So, I have to look harder closer to home.
The shoreline of a small pond is a fun place to explore. It’s always been that way for me, starting many years ago as a small barefooted boy in summertime. The difference today is I have a camera to record what I find.
