Guitar

This was sitting over in the corner of a friend’s living room. It was very dim in the house, but I liked the look.

Jenna’s Continuation

So, Jenna is now officially a middle-schooler. Hard to believe, since it seems like just yesterday when we dropped her off for her first day of kindergarten. The only down side of the ceremony was the horrendous lighting. I have a few shots I’ll probably try to clean up and post, but since they didn’t use the stage lights, what little illumination there is was a mixture of dim flourescent gym lighting and incandescent cafeteria lighting. Not pretty.

Silence! I Kill You!

Just Kenny, channeling his inner Achmed the Dead Terrorist.

Sarah in Profile

Just one of those spur-of-the-moment shots that I thought turned out very nicely.

Elephant Ride

In case you couldn’t tell by the size of the green bean on that back of the elephant, this is an older shot, newly revisited.

Mommy and the Bean

I took this last summer, but the background was so cluttered that I paid little attention to it until recently. After a bit of work, I kinda like it!

Not-So-Common Nighthawk

There was a strange lump on a tree branch in a friend’s front yard. A closer look revealed a roosting Common Nighthawk. Definitely a first for me. BTW, this was taken with Jenna’s 20D and a 75-300mm lens.

Jenna’s Rose

This was the first shot Jenna took with the new-to-her EOS 20D. I just did the post-processing.

Bored with Pizza

This is what happens when a 3 year old gets bored with his pizza…

Sepia Cowgirl

This shot of Jenna was a little rough, but I kept working on it until I was satisfied with the results, which took a while.

Sepia Glamour

I’ve been working on monochrome portraits for a few days now, so you expect to see several over the next few days.

Damn the Transitions

Okay, okay, I hear ya. Got a couple complaints about the transitions on the Blaze slideshow app being annoying where the eclipse series is concerned, and I concur. Unfortunately, while I can change the transitions, there is no setting for “none”. I have set it for the least obtrusive transition that I’ve found, but for those who want to see a more animated look at the eclipse shots, here is a plain old animated gif for your perusal.

Eclipse Slideshow

I promised you a slideshow of the eclipse, and here it is…
