Inside The Globe

As the silly season quickly approaches we in the Thrift Shop biz have our version of Black Friday. At our shop this is the biggest fundraising day for us. Since we are part of a non-profit it is especially helpful to us and our mission. I take pictures of the setup, and of the big sales day, to help us promote it for next year and hopefully drive up donations of goods to the shop….also it help us remember how we set it up since we are brain-dead by the end of the day. One of the items that are donated I enjoy is the snow globes. It harkens back to my youth I guess but none the less I find them to be a simple pleasure and one that is hard to photograph. Here is a bear in a Santa suit inside the globe.


An Apple Blossom From A While Ago

I took this back in the Spring of 2012 with my Canon Powershot SX260HS. Though I am sure I have posted this pic before what I  really wanted to do was post a photo I was working on using Topaz Simple 4. I wanted to but it sucked  I was not pleased with it, and besides I am tired, so here is an Apple Blossom from a while ago.

Supermoon From Last Night

I took this with my Canon Powershot SX260HS using the side of a telephone pole as a prop. I shot it in “Live” mode which allows me to adjust the temperature, color range ( vivid to neutral) and how bright I want it. Though I decided to not crop the shot I had to do a high pass sharpening on this pic.The lack of a tripod and being that at 39X zoom I was into the digital end of the zoom a bit it needed a little love. I was hoping for another pass with the SX260Hs tonight but we are boxed in by rain and such. Till the next time remember to take the shot…….and enjoy the moment.
