There is a small channel that connects Lake Ontario with Irondequoit Bay and there is a swing bridge that allows traffic to pass over the channel.  These orange markers are placed along the bridge as a warning to small craft going through the channel.  The walkway is reflected in the water and the early morning light struck it just right.

This house sits just a few feet from the shore of Lake Ontario and, as pleasant as that can be most of the time, I’m sure there are other times that the owners have to brace themselves.  This was taken just before sunset last week.

And now the “more” part:  Last week a gallon of white paint fell off a truck onto the access road to BJ’s here in Webster (Where Life is Worth Living).  It was promptly hit by another vehicle, actually several vehicles.  The paint can, being made of plastic, did not survive the hits very well and the entire contents are now part of the road.  Fortunately, I was there moments after it happened and with a camera, too.  I got a few shots after I removed what was left of the can from the road and those shots (keyword: cosmic paint) will be featured at our sister site lightscatter.  Instead of posting twice weekly, there will be a different photo from this series every day this week (except Saturday and Sunday, even if you offer me double overtime).  Please check them out if you have any time to waste.

Happy Thanksgiving

I think these ducks were saying “EAT MORE TURKEY”!!!

In the spirit of the holiday season, and since I’m feeling pretty generous today,  here are a few of my favorite photos from a long, long, loooong time ago.  And they feature the hottest subjects in photography today: a vacuum cleaner and an old shoe. ehpem, Mel – enjoy!

Not far from the shore of Lake Ontario is this small grove and I just happen to catch it near sundown.  And since the long nights allow me to play more with post processing, here is the same photo in black and white using Silver Effects Pro 2.  This plug-in has been around a while and I was wondering if a new (v3) is in the works.  Anybody?  Bueller? Bueller?
