in the shadows

I frequently drive by a cemetery that has a small chapel.  One of the spot lights that illuminates the front is not working, which casts a spooky shadow on the front of the building.  I can’t wait to pay another visit on a foggy night.  A contribution to The Weekend in Black and White 19-December-2014.

mint m&m’s

I don’t know why I should bother buying any additional lenses for the Sony, the old Yashica comes through again.  These are mint M&M’s (three different shades of green).

another abstract

It seems yesterday’s abstract was so popular, so I have another one for you. This tree is located in front of our house. I built a simple frame and the tree takes about 5 minutes to assemble (my kind of Christmas decoration) using six strings of lights.  Here’s a link to a different photo of the same tree.

the christmas tree

I’m really good at taking out of focus photos, but I assure you, this one was quite intentional.  An abstract of one of our Christmas tree’s taken with the 50mm Yashica.  Does this help you get in the Christmas spirit?

by the farm

I recently visited an old friend of mine; he rebuilt the dynamo (generator) from my 1956 Matchless.

On the way home, I snapped caught the warm glow of the setting sun over the cold, snowy farm field. A good match for Good Fences #38.
