If The Picture Is So Boring You Notice The Noise…

My Thoughts On Noise. What’s the first thing you notice about the above image? Is it the wind blown snow, it’s seasonal quality with the holiday wreath? Or is the fact the image is a little bit grainy because it was shot at ISO 3200? How about this image of the Memorial Bridge linking downtown… Read More

Weekly Photo Challenge: Let There Be Light 1.1

In The Spirit Of The Season,   Let There Be Light! This is a new version of the original post where some are having trouble viewing the images. And since the images are all that matter, we simply cannot have that!

One Last Glance

Mid Stream, Mid Leap, By The Light Of The Moon With time to kill one evening this past week, I stopped by a small stream near where I work to capture a few long exposures of fallen leaves swirling on the water’s surface. Two of my favorites from my experiments with leaves, water, and time,… Read More

Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

Normally, there is only one source of  illumination that matters to me as a photographer. (Hint: Rises in the East, sets in the West). Though occasionally I do rely on other, artificial, sources of illumination while making my photographs.   Cocheco Mill, Dover, NH.     “Night Glow” at the Pittsfield, NH Hot Air Balloon… Read More

The Final Shot Of 2012

It was brutally cold, winds in excess of 30mph(48kph), several shots ruined by car headlights illuminating the island, but it… Read More

Sunday’s Hidden Treasure.

Here’s wishing you all Happy Holidays. This weeks “Hidden Treasure” wasn’t really hidden, or forgotten.  But being of a very seasonal nature it hasn’t been looked at since I shared a very similar image this time last year.   Market Square in Portsmouth, NH Canon EOS 40D Tamron 17-50 f2.8 ISO 100, 17mm, 15 sec.… Read More

Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

Geometry. Angle, Line, Architecture.  My first thoughts for this weeks theme, buildings, bridges, and other man-made structures. Not the usual focus of my photography, but from time to time I will include the man-made. Enjoy this gallery of my take on geometry.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement

Movement: The Camera. In both of these images the camera was moved during exposure. One was completely accidental, the other was created completely on purpose. Can you tell which was created on purpose, and which was the “accidental art”?       Movement: The Subject, part 1 Generally, when I think of movement in one of my… Read More

Persistence Pays

From a photo project springs a thought about not giving up. I’ve been so busy lately I didn’t have time to go out and make an image for this weeks theme of “Blue,” for the 52 Week Photo Project, sponsored by LensProToGo, that I’m participating in. I’ve tried to create images each week that fit… Read More
