White Blooms Among The Green

I must apologize for the lame, though accurate, post title. As I was finishing up the text on the photos the smoke alarm went off in the kitchen. Tonight though part of my dinner lays is a black smokey heap in the garbage I did learn one thing: The difference in smoke points in olive oil versus sesame oil. Instead of trying to look up this wonderful white bloom I will now post and go to Plan B for dinner.

Day Lillies Along The Fence Roll

It was about eight years ago I was re-bitten by the photograph bug. I was using a small mega pixel but huge bodied HP315 2.1mp camera my pops gave me. I was out with The Bride doing a little shopping when I came across a Vivitar Vivicam 8300s on sale. The Bride graciously encouraged me to buy the Vivicam 8300s and the journey continued. I can say if I had not purchased that camera I am not sure I would have pursued photography as I have. Thank you my Love for the encouragement. A desire for nature photography was just blooming, pun fully intended, and this shot of some Day Lillies Along The Fence Roll cemented it even further.

Sunset On Our Place In HDR

I took the set of three pictures needed to do a HDR merge with my Vivitar 8300s at sundown last night. I did not have my tripod handy, which is a necessity for great results on a HDR photo, so I used a barbed wire fence post top instead. Though not a perfectly aligned merge I am pretty happy with the results none the less. So here is a sunset on our place in HDR!

Two To Compare

The weather in our little corner of the world has been well blah! So in lieu of new photos I have been noodling in pictures-past to fill in till Mister Sunshine shows back up. I found the following two I had taken with my old Vivitar 8300s. One is simple point and shoot shot for comparison of the size of the moth to its surroundings. The next is a macro which I think came out very well of the same moth. So here is two to compare. Enjoy!
