The glowing light from within is special. The light in the pumpkin, the light in the teepee. The light within the globe of a lamp or inside the lampshade.
I have a bird feeder on the back deck. Mostly, I see birds eating, but every now and again, one of them flies. I don’t get a lot of birds in flight, but I have some herons, seagulls, and the occasional little bird when my camera gets lucky and grabs a picture … often quite unexpectedly.
Shooting wildlife. Not merely birds, but any wildlife is difficult. It requires patience. I have a friend who shoots pictures of wildcats and mountain lions. I asked him how he did it.
He said: “Lots and lots of patience and a high-quality long lens.”
Luck helps too. Sometimes, there you are and the birds just take off. You just happen to have a camera ready. You can’t plan it, but it’s great when it happens. Makes you look like a genius and all you really did was point and shoot.
There’s so much blue in our world. Sky and sea, houses and turquoise and … well … everything.
And so, this is a little bit of everything!
Our deck, from the lawn below and the deck itself above. It’s about as above and below as you can get in this house.
It’s not a tall house. It’s more of a long house with a lot of hallways.
We don’t have any big bridges near us, but we do have bridges.
River bridges on every road.
Reflections in the Blackstone in the fall are beautiful. The colors are soft in the water, though if the water is quiet, sometimes it is as close as you can get to a mirror.
Rivers usually are not quite as silky as bigger bodies of water. Ponds and lakes sometimes are so smooth, you can turn the picture upside down and it looks almost the same, both ways.
Despite the lack of a brilliant fall, this October has produced a lot of pictures. Garry was outside today because we had sunshine. No reflections today … we don’t have any water here … but plenty of pictures.
A Photo a Week Challenge: Through Glass
I take a lot of pictures through glass probably because I live in a land of snow, ice, rain, and mud — conditions which sometimes make going out to take pictures less than pleasant.
But to deal with the bad weather, we have doors and windows.
And taking pictures through them is one of the ways I cope with recovering from something, or inclement weather.
