Three From Out My Back Window

Like the title says, I took these out my back window. We got right at 10″ of snow and I had a snow day, so I took advantage of it. I moved The Bride’s desk out from in front of the window, dropped the top pane down and enjoyed nature being nature. In a word it was delightful. The birds seemed to be too fast for my point and shots, too far away for my DSLR but just right for me to drink in. So here are three from out my back window.

Messing With Effects

Late fall I took several macros of a wasp feeding on a Common Wood Aster. I found the process very eye-opening and a new-found appreciation for wasps.So when I found this one today I thought it would be cool to play with a few effects.Now don’t ask me how I got here: I am that person who noodles around till it sings to me then forget how I got there. I am going to attempt to turn this one into digital art. Not sure what medium but oil paint will be my starting point.
