Was going through some old photographs and found this one of the Golden Gate Bridge taken quite a while ago when I first got into photography. At that time, I was taking an abstract photography class. It is always fun and motivating to try something outside of your comfort level!

Chickadees are one of my favorite backyard birds. I get many visitors throughout the seasons.
Wishful Thinking! Sitting here in Chicago, a windy 11 degrees outside, watching the snow blow across my backyard. Wishing I was here in Dogwood Canyon in Missouri watching the warm water flow down the rocks.
the man in the moon
eclipsed of all expression
like humans in masks
flapping, bird takes flight
leaving its white reflection
piercing spring colors
Normally I shoot most of my flower photographs in bright lit settings. This time I tried something new. It was evening and the room was lit with one dim lamp. By really increasing my ISO it picked up the variance of light illuminating the flower casting a sheen effect. Think I will try this more often. Would like to hear any suggestions for other indoor lighting. I don’t usually photograph indoors. But given it’s winter in the Midwest. I am desperate.
