A silver lining. (you can always find one)

Tilt. Shift. Shooting straight is not always the best way to go.

Easy come, easy go - any way the wind blows.
I spotted the big fluffy cloud at the bottom while driving and knew I had to pull over to try and get the shot. The only place to park was the local produce stand - I didn't even see the windmill until I got out of the car and started to frame the shot. This is so a 'got lucky' I can't believe it happened. But it did, and I'm pleased.

The view on the way to the view.

Strung out.


Sometimes we have to look twice to see what we didn't see before.


My city was gone.


Objects in mirror are closer than they appear.

Are you out there?

The day I missed the shot of the Blue Angels as they flew right over our house. This shot taken probably 30 seconds before, but I got so excited I didn't know what to do when the jets really roared by!

Rain. The camera+ app helps.


I made the sun go down. A 'found' shot while I was looking for something completely different. The color of the sky makes it for me.

Blue Angels from the roof at work! Two days later they flew right over our back yard and though I had camera in hand and had been tracking them by sound, I was so excited I missed the shot! So this is the best Blue Angels for me for 2010. There's always next year.

I hate the power lines. Hate them. I've seen them ruin so many good shots. But it was bound to happen, and I think they work here. Probably will still try to avoid them whenever possible. Wired.

Why not photobooth my favorite shot?

Shades! I almost missed this one. Then there it was in Peter's office. A slight adjustment, a little camera+ apping, and here it is. Happy.

'Red sun' through car sunroof.  First spotted a difference this morning from the sunrays coming in through the windows. Then someone tweeted the big account 'what's with the red sun?' Sure enough it was red. Ask the weather department, turns out it was caused by smoke drifting south from a wildfire in British Columbia. This photo was cropped, but not enhanced in any other way.


Who moved the Needle?


I call this one 'everywhere which way.' I didn't even spot the right turn with the curve sign until after I downloaded the shot. Great example of what I'm trying to do - see, not think. This came about 8 pm, and I was frantic for a shot before the sun went down. I was pulling out of a parking lot and there it was. Where I would least expect it. So, don't expect.


This never gets old. Ever.


Morning swirls. Slight tweak with camera+
