Blood Moon: Part 3

I was driving too slow, as far as my husband was concerned, for the people behind me. What he didn’t get was the fact that his height and my lack of it makes a huge difference in a pilots – I mean drivers – confidence in navigating around hairpin turns with steep drop offs on narrow logging roads with deep ruts. Oh, and did I mention my very real lack of depth perception? It takes a while for my eyes to adjust to any movement, seconds really, but there is a delay between my brain and my eyeballs. My eyes … Continue reading Blood Moon: Part 3

Things are not Always as We’re Told

Roses aren’t always red and skies aren’t always blue, but I’m posting some photos I took for you to view. The rose gardens (must have been over an acre of them,) smelled like heaven to walk through. They had thousands of other types of flowers at Point Defiance. It was a wonderful day spent there. My camera battery finally gave out. Darn it. So many pictures to take!

Motion in Photography

Ah, motion, the thing this grandma has a hard time with in her photographs. Using the different settings on my camera confuses me. I’m a point and shoot type of photographer who aims for decent composition but am in no way mechanically-minded enough to figure out what to do with the camera’s direction booklet as it relates to picture taking. Last time I made an effort, I had to have my daughter fix the camera so I could even use it again. (Both my son and daughter are camera-geeks. But because they’re not close-at-hand anymore, I dare not screw things … Continue reading Motion in Photography
