Nice to have some fresh chives in the planter box. Remember to experiment with different crops while you are working on your photos. Cut out all the extraneous stuff … a good rule in your life, too.

After a couple of weeks of weeding the garden and lawn, this little fella came up anyway. I decided to memorialize it, so dropped in on my scanner.

This image didn’t do anything for me and just sat in the folder for months. I was playing around with Lightroom and happened to hit on this image as an example of an image with lots of detail. Then I reduced the exposure on the background shadows … where usually I want to bring out details. What a difference. A good example of not getting yourself locked into your routine so much that you don’t listen to what the image is telling you.

If you isolate a subject from everything around it, you can create an abstract image as a result of a lack of context. This is a shot of dried algae in a brackish beach pond. But it’s not about what the subject is, it’s about the textures.

Was going through photos and seeing what I had missed during my original selection/edit process. Came on this one. Maybe I had skipped it due to it reminding me that I had weeding to do? Glad I went back and reviewed images from the past. It’s a good practice.

There was a thick coating of hoar frost on top of the inch or two of snow. This is at Hurricane Ridge, Olympic National Park.

A vase of flowers over on a side table sat unnoticed for several days longer than usual. On the way out to the yard waste, they called to me asking for a final photograph. I really like the image… it calls to me. Make sure you click on it and see the larger image. The texture and detail are quite fine.
