Iris

Back into the archives
to see some irises,
stately and proud.

Some people don't even have to use the Way Back Machine!!

Be Still Week One

I have started an on-line course,
called Be Still.
It is about centring yourself before picking up the camera
and capturing still life photos.
Being still and focusing is harder than it looks.
So are still lifes.
But these images are my favourite results of the week.

Another Rusty Thing

Another set of photos from the archives, from my Dad's collection.
I have no idea what it was before it became rust.

Sunlight and Snow

I am happy that my gate faces the south, so I can see the sunlight coming through the snow which the gate has captured!!

Queen Anne's Lace in Winter

There was freezing rain the day before I went to visit my Mom. While I was waiting for the bus, I took some photos...
I will be linking this post with Today's Flowers. Other people likely don't have icicles...

Goldenrod

Time for more flowers!!
This fall, I was noticing goldenrod galls.
They are made by some sort of fly, 
and there are wasps that prey on them, specifically.

Railroad Ties

My Mom now lives near the railroad, and I found this pile of ties last time I was visiting her. 
The similarities, and the sort of repeating pattern caught my eye.
They stank of creosote, though, so I did not stay long.

Bottle and Asters

We have sun today, so I was working in that,
but still with still life.
This series is an old medicine bottle, and a few aster seed heads.
And the sunlight and shadows, of course.
Please let me know what you think...
