Ferns

Ferns

There is a foot bridge over a small gully in the Bloedel Reserve that provides a wonderful opportunity for shooting directly down on plants such as these ferns. It provides just a slightly different perspective than the usual.

Weeds

Weeds

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.

Natural Textures

Natural Textures

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.

  • ISO 125 1/600 sec f/5.6

Dandelion Seed

Dandelion Seed

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.

  • Camera: Fujifilm GFX-50R with 63mm lens
  • ISO 125 1/120 sec f/8

Oregon Grape

Oregon Grape

These oregon grapes were near the beach in Fort Worden State Park. I had found some earlier that were down by the beach, but they were a little dried out. These were in a shadier area and looked more healthy.

  • ISO 800 1/125 sec f/5.0

High Contrast Peony

Not only is this a high contrast image, but it’s in high contrast with the Peony photo posted two images prior. (see here) It’s also from the same plant. Pretty amazing what a difference it can make to change an image from color to high contrast B&W.

I really was struck by how sensual this image was. ’nuff said.

This is another image taken with my iPhone. There is a filter called “Ink” that is accessible (in newer phones) within the Messages app. I didn’t find it anywhere available in the Camera app. Not sure why, but I sent this image to myself and then it shows up in your photo catalog in Photos.

Yellow Peony

Yellow Peony

Moving into a new house in the fall, we were interested in seeing what would come up in the spring. We had several peony plants around the yard, too. But we were surprised when one of them was a yellow one. I’d never seen one before… quite nice.
