July 29, 2009  -  Texas Sage    I really want a good macro lens. All this cropping to get the shot I want is not working well. Hmmmm do I starve the kids, deprive them of an education and dance classes, sell off the cars or stand on a street corner holding a sign that says "will work for glass"?            LOL    -    J/K!  ;)
February 10...  Beach #4.  Almost every day I take Blif for a walk along the beach. Especially in autumn and winter the sky puts up magnificent shows. The other day this sky came up covering most colors even a bit of green at the left. The show went on for app. 10 minutes, and then it was all over.

Four Minutes with the Swamp Tree, Lake Sam Rayburn TX    We went back to Lake Sam Rayburn yesterday to find a new sunset location and had a list of places to scope out.  But the first place we went to was pretty cool so we stuck it out for sunset.  Directly to the frame right is a large swamp area with tall swamp grass.  We heard a lot of strange swamp sounds and saw a lot of water ripples and swamp grass shuffles but didn't spot any reptiles other than the occasional frog.  The dogs kept wanting to explore the swamp but we wouldn't let them out of fear of alligators and wild boars.  I'm not sure if either animal actually make their homes around these swamps but we were on the lookout nonetheless.  I thought we'd be mauled by bugs too, but surprisingly we had a very pleasant time watching the sunset unfold on a small peninsula facing this swamp tree.      This is a four minute exposure taken at f/22, ISO 50.  I used a circular polarizer to increase the glare on the water, creating more light and more reflection on the water.  I've been wanting to try a really long exposure with clouds for a long time.  I love long exposure motion.  I finally got my wish!  To get a four minute exposure I put my camera in bulb mode and set my intervalometer   to four minutes and pushed the start button.  I also programmed the intervalometer to continuously take photos, one after another, so that I could just stand around and enjoy the sunset myself.  Once I get the hang of programming it quicker I think I'll probably stop using it more often.  I know for sure that I am going to do some time lapse photography soon.  I always wanted to try it, but I'm even more excited after seeing this amazing 30 days and 30 nights by Trey Ratcliff (watch full screen, full volume!).    There was a lot of long exposure noise, but it wasn't anything Lightroom 4 couldn't handle.      Critiques always welcome!    Daily photo: August 20, 2012, taken August 19, 2012
07.10.14  Daisies.  ETA: It wasn't raining. The sprinkler was on.  Yesterday I did not feel well at all. I am hoping today will be a better day.
Ford Cobra, what can you say about this car. Just a beautiful car great lines, just a great looking car.  Thanks for the comments on the Rock Pile Photo.
The Journey begins...    Please accept my apologies if I do not get to your shot right aways.    Please let me explain.    Taking care of my mom is virtually like taking care of a toddler. She can only take a few steps and she has to have diapers. I giver her meds to her, I get her up and in the wheelchair to take her to the dinning room to eat. She can feed herself so that's good. Basically when she needs something I have to get it. So if I don't comment right away I haven't forgotten you I'm just in the middle of something.    Have a GRATEFUL day.      and smile...    *
