Through Two Shutters…

Image

This photo completely appeals to me and maybe it’s because it reminds me of that old Alfred Hitchcock movie the Birds. It’s kind of creepy and cool all at once. I applied some split toning to the photo until I was happy with it.

 While sitting on my dining room floor testing some new camera settings, the sun was shining brightly overhead. I noticed a flock of birds resting on the tree across the street and every so often several of them would fly off. It was odd because the scene kept replaying but there was still the same amount of birds left in the tree. So below is what I captured  through both my camera shutter and through my window shutter; hence, through two shutters…

Morning Moon…

The moon has been so beautiful and bright this week hanging in the west early morning through midday! I love it. I hope you never get tired of these shots because I can sit and stare at the moon all day and night especially when it’s SO big.

I’m stuck in aperture priority with my 35-70 mm f2.8. Click on the photos for a bigger view.

Taken this morning at 7:45 through the willow tree.

Rain Drops…

It rained seriously hard the day before yesterday. That’s all the motivation I need to take a picture. The cars in the distance were parents waiting for the bus to rescue their children from the downpour. Great opportunity to practice and demonstrate perfect circles of specular highlights at a wide open aperture. I think this is an interesting image. Wouldn’t you know, the weather is beautifully sunny today. Gotta love Texas. Have a good one!
