Just another day in the Garden

Planting is in full tilt.
Missing my camera...but I'm busy getting dirt under my finger nails.
Must remember the fruits of my efforts,
Images galore!!

Easter Sunday Past

On an Easter Sunday passed I was visiting my folks.
At 6 am I caught some of the best images I've ever taken
That was 2 years ago and I now have unearthed one that got missed
I love light, and always look for how light makes your image special.
We have all heard the saying..."look into the light"
Its not just for passing to the other side.

Zenaida macroura

This mom Mourning Dove was on her nest just 3 feet
above our heads as we sat on a friends small deck.
She found last summers hanging pot and laid 2 eggs.
As long as you were not aggressive she would not move!
In image 3 you get a look at her kids....really interesting!

This is the center spiral of a Gerber Daisy
Caught on my hip pocket Canon point and shoot
at the Home Depot Garden Center, where I work.
whats really nice about this is this is the raw image
absolutely no adjustments!

Feeling like Icarus

Images from a Jet aircraft
If you have ever done this every image is a rainbow because of the glass
in the jet...so to compensate...a wee bit of photoshop work has been done.
These were taken on my recent trip to Florida
And like Icarus I feel like I'm getting to close to the sun!

Cheer Leaders

A quiet day in Florida by the pool became a real show!
This group of youngsters were from a high school cheer leading team
who had been competing at the national championships.
After several spectacular moves I asked their coach if they could show me something interesting?
He said "sure" and he set his team up to do a "Triple Basket"
which are image 2 thru 5
after that they pulled of a Pyramid!
all in all a fun and not quiet day at the pool!!

Mothers Day

"A mother is a person who seeing 
there are only 3 pieces of pie for 4 people,
promptly announces that she never did care 
for pie"
for my Mumzie
There is no greater love in this world.
