yellow, green & abandoned

I’ve been busy…I’ve taken on the job of Market Manager for our local Market, which is two days a week…it takes up a great deal of time.  I have a many photos and will post some one of these days but for now, here is another abandoned building.  I love the contrast of the old buildings with the green and yellow!   Again, this was taken from my vehicle on the way to Sudbury…don’t worry my son was driving!

my first photos…

Some of you will know I’ve not been happy with my 18mm-50mm lens that came with my camera, I felt limited with it…I’ve thought about this for a few months as I wasn’t sure what I wanted or even if I needed a new lens.  This one was suggested as a starting point, something I could build from…it is a Nikon AF 50mm f/1.8D, it wasn’t expensive, but I’ve read many positive reviews, it also comes highly recommended by a blogging friend…it is supposed to be a great lens in spite of the cost.   I’ve only taken a few shots with it so I’m not sure what I’m doing with it yet…time will tell!

ducks.moma.babies.2013I was about 10 feet away from this mom and her chicks, she didn’t seem to be afraid of me,but she didn’t want me too close…as I inched closer she kept walking away, with one eye on me at all times…

tree.mushrooms.2013I like the texture on tree trunks, when I saw this one with the mushrooms growing I decided to see how much detail I could pick up…


grayscale…

a blogging friend did a bit of black & white recently and I rather liked the look so decided to do something other than what is usual for me…I found three shots I and did them in grayscale…as is expected it changes the look considerably…it is good to step outside the norm on occasion…

my view…

on the way back from Key West, we stopped so I could take photos of the old rail bridge on Bahia Honda Key,
I post them another day…but when I looked behind me I thought that view deserved a couple of photos as well…but then that is just me and my love of the water…both views are looking back towards Key West…

the shore line wasn’t great here, but then it isn’t in some places in the Keys…not a big deal for me…
if I wanted a beach I would be going to the Caribbean… not Key West.palm.tree.bahi.honda.key.2013


beauty & gnarly…

here is one of my favourite bushes…Bougainvillea……so vibrantly colourfulhibiscus.2013.marco.

anyone who stops by on occasion will know that a gnarly tree is beautiful thing to me…it always makes me wonder what happened to the branches to make them for m the way they do…some trees it is obvious the wind has bent them but others not so obvious…saw this fellow on the way to Key West when I stopped to take photos of the bridgegnarly.tree.k.w.2013


a mixture…

when I went for my walk yesterday I only managed to get one photo…didn’t see anything new and interesting, this is the only thing that caught my eye…happens that way sometimes…I’ve walked past this tree many times but always from the opposite direction so I’m assuming I  didn’t notice the gnarly branches/trunk…I will have to walk that way again to see if I can get a better view of the one branch in particular…

holding on…

this tree is in my front yard and I noticed last winter the stately old fellow holds on to it’s leaves for as long as it can!   Here it is January 4th., and he still has many flapping in the wind…as you can see a bit of a gloomy day…

First let me say Merry Christmas! May your day be filled with love…

I took a few photos of my tree to post but because it is done in chocolate brown, lime green, silver and a touch of red it didn’t show up nicely…so I decide to show a few of my decorations!

This little bear is hand made by a friend of mine…he is just under 4 inches tall…has movable arms and legs… definitly a work of art!teddy bear 2012This is a hand cut and painted glass decoration!hand made decoriations 2012

The star isn’t handcrafted but looks like it could have been…I just like the design.star 2012

sunset behind…

single tree.2012 (573 x 600)I took this photo a couple of days ago…the same day I took the sunset…in fact the sunset is behind me in this shot…in case you were wondering, I have a fascination with trees, but I particularly love trees like this one, alone, naked without its leaves…

Merry Christmas everyone…may you have a safe, healthy, happy holiday season!
