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.
These shots were made close to the same time the photo in the last post was made. This is the view from that house.
Don’t forget to check out the cosmic paint splatter photos each day this week at lightscatter!
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.
I was only at the lake a few minutes before the thunder, lightning and rain drove me inside. I was able to get off a few shots, all taken within a few minutes of each other.
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?
No, this isn’t my house but some days I wish it were. Like this one. That’s Lake Ontario in the foreground.
Here is the color version of the same file. There really is not much in the way of enhancement, either.
It was close to sundown when I snapped this at the Lake. Heavy clouds rolling in from the north and the choppy water are irresistible to me.
HAPPY VETERANS DAY!!!
I’ll make an admission to you if you promise not to tell anyone else; I used to arrange leaves on the forest floor to photograph. I know, it’s the photographic equivalent of being an outlaw but now my Parole Officer keeps me well in line. Had I placed this orange leaf in this composition I would not have put it over the green leaf. Nature put it there and I pressed the shutter button. It took me years of rehab to get to this point but I feel good about it. However, I won’t blame you if you decide to unsubscribe.
