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.
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.
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!
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!
