hello

A few months ago, I purchased a GoPro and I have to admit, it’s fun. One thing that is very different is that I’m usually not operating the shutter when the picture is taken. You see, the GoPro has an amazingly simple time-lapse capability.

In this case, I attached a mounting plate to the side of the bird house, set it to take a photo every few seconds, and walked away. It’s a real ‘set it and forget it‘ operation.

I caught this Barn Tree Swallow (thanks Mike!) poking his head out of the bird house, which includes a fence, so this is my contribution to good fences #5.

I included some other shots below.

a twist

After taking ‘cozy spot for two‘, I came down to ground level and took another shot, converted it to monochrome, and played with selective colorization.  Blue is my favorite color, but I prefer the yellow.

daisy

These were part of an unusually shaped daisy ‘bush’ shown at the bottom of this post.  I got the petals to pop by increasing the contrast and exposure and by decreasing the highlights (adds details to the petals) and shadows (decreases the background flowers).  There were taken at Longwood Gardens.

This photo was taken at the same time, zoomed out, so you can see the effects of the post-processing.

happy easter

I thought I’d share my favorite flower photo from my recent trip to Longwood Gardens; I think those red stigma are pretty cool .  Happy Easter to those that celebrate.

orange, red, and green

I could tell you exactly where this plant lives at Longwood Gardens, but no clue as to its identity.  I thought the colors are outstanding. My contribution to Orange you glad it’s Friday #86 and I heart macro #49
