2013

O.D. wants some photos of her and Mike so I’m going through my folders… and I’ve deleted over 3,000 so far! Who wants a hundred pictures of a bug… or bird… or blister…?

Autumn has finally come! Not really, they do this constantly.
Holy mother of pearl..!

That’s what I said upon finding this photo… holy mother of pearl… I used to take pictures!! And I enjoyed it! Just when I was starting to feel like a non person, too.

Larger version just because.

Illumination

The difference between the first and second picture: 12 inches and a shadow. In reality they’re all deeply, brilliantly blue.

My friend Joanie first taught me about shadows and light and for that I thank her, because I look for it everywhere now. 😉

11Pro

First photo with my new iPhone…

Untouched in any way… and yes, my ficus hedge is dying a pitiful death. Still.
The guys want $800 to drag them out but I figure my pulling the dead up one at a time is cheaper.

Anyway, I was excited to receive the new phone yesterday; my Christmas gift from Mike!
Love the way it treats light and shadow… each seem to be in balance, the shadow neither too dark nor the light garish/blown out.

I don’t know that it can replace my Canon, but we’re going to have fun, this phone and I.
