Little Green Spider
I took this photo back in 2011 as I was walking a nature trail one evening. I used a Nikon CoolPix 4600 set on macro. In this post I resized the image and tried sharpening it up a bit but the sharpening gave the pedals a “halo”, which I will have to figure out why later. For now here is a little green spider.

Black & White Sunday: Architecture 02
In response to Cardinal Guzman’s challenge, as a guest of Paula’s @ Lost in Translation, here is one of a small town’s downtown. The first challenge I took a shot of this area with a DSLR. It was in the cold and the wind was ever-present with its wintry sting. It was also around 1AM Christmas morning and, though it was cold, there was a lightness about the place. I took this shot today (pictured in this post) with a 6 megapixel point and shot. The day was pleasantly warm but overcast by the time I could get out and take a few snaps. Instead of taking the shot in the same spot as before, I took it in the middle of the street. I wanted to show a contrast of how two shots of the same place can cast a different flavor if you will on the same place.
I traveled to Indiana yesterday to get together with some of my family. In between lunch and a birthday party my brother and I spent time in downtown Bedford, Indiana. I am trying to get my head around architectural photography to try and some interior photography as well. Since is was in the 60’s and sunny I stuck to a few attempts at a very cool downtown Bedford.
