The Backside is a 5

Dear Reader,

Yesterday was at times a silly happy one.  It was partially planned and partially an example of chance favouring the prepared mind.  In other words, I went for a drive and dumb luck happened. Fortunately I was alone.  A passenger would have been  driven nuts by my behaviour. There were U turns in the middle of empty roads, stops at the side of the road for no apparent reason, reversal of vehicle and thought on country lanes, and general meandering.  The destination was Mossleigh, where I had a simple lunch with a glass of wine in an old railway car at Aspen Crossing.

At my first stop I captured what may be a familiar site to some of you (first photo).  But, the other side was my first 5 star photo (second photo) of the day.  Just in case you are wondering, all the photos of the next 2 or 3 days have had minimal, if any post-processing.

Cheers, Sean

 

 

 

Nearly Goodlies

Dear Reader,

First of all, to answer the wt… question.  I know, this is the third blog in a row.  I don’t expect this trend to last long.  But, I do have a couple more postings in mind.

Secondly, a number of years ago I knew of a man who had a penchant for collecting uglies.  An ugly is a hard thing to find.  Even though there are ever so many really hideous pieces of china  and home furnishings, many of them have an intended use.  By definition, an ugly can have no discernible use.  All those horrid fruit bowls and equally tasteless vases don’t count.  A true ugly has no function.  Some of those strange misshapen blue mountain antler things come to mind.

Here is a small collection of photos from the top of Tunnel Mountain.  I normally share with you my at least partial photographic victories.  On my scale these photos score 3/5.  They all have something wrong with them.  They teach me to be more careful.

Cheers, Sean

PS I am not against fruit bowls and vases – we have many

A Pot, A Flower, and A Sky

Dear Reader,

Though I have not shared anything with you for a while I have been busy.  Here are 3 recent ones.  Unfortunately, the sky photo does not have the sharpness and range I Iike.  Despite its flaws, it still though has merit. I had been playing with the jpeg format and had not switched back to raw – ah silly me.   We live and learn (sometimes).

Cheers, Sean

Work Begins Again

Dear Reader

Thanks to my friend Keith, I am now working again.  This is a good thing, and I will shortly have an income once again.  Not only does the work take time, time is also required to discern the rules of a new game.  And so now we reach the crux of the matter.  For the immediate future, I will have few resources for photography. I will though try and throw up an idea once a week or so.design-2017-fall-001
