Today I had about an hour to play with in between varies chores and social obligations. I grabbed my D60 and an old Nikon 35mm film camera lens and set off to get some snaps in. I do not know about all cameras but when you mate a manual film camera lens with a modern DSLR the light metering can be less than optimum. So I snagged an app for my iPod that came in very handy today. The first photo is an unedited but slightly cropped shot from today. The second is what the app looks like on my iPod. I will try it out with my extension tubes as I shot macro later this Spring.
Work has kept me pretty busy lately so no new captures for today. I have several I need to download but busy is getting in the way of my fun 🙂 Being a grown up stinks sometimes 😉 Till the next time here is one from awhile ago!
The temperatures here, since Springs official arrival, have been staying in the high thirties to low forties during the day. The low twenties are not uncommon at night. Though they have dipped into the teens a time or two just for good measure. As mentioned before the Sun has spent very little time in my corner of the world this winter. It has been the same this Spring as well but today must have been worthy of its presence. I for one am glad.
Here is a few photos from the Hill I took before the Sun went about its daily, or nightly, rounds. Enjoy!
Today was a wonderfully sunny day but I have been inside most of the day with a sinus headache. After taking a short three or so hour nap, I awoke with just enough energy to snap a few shots of the Daffodils blooming on the hill across from our place. Spring is coming because there are Daffodils on the hill!
…….more time to shot outdoors right? Well maybe not if I have to factor in the list of spring chores and unfinished projects. So I am grabbing the photo opportunities as they come. Here are several I have taken in the last week. Enjoy!
The new blog is about my journey through pictures as a novice photographer. There will be some dialog but mostly just a picture or two or three once a week or so. Enjoy!
