November and December the walks shorter and less frequent raindrops and lack of light. The same blocks seeking and finding something new.
Each day, each stroll I study this new to me digital world. I have had a Nikon Diggie since 2009 but never really embraced it till March when Jeff a friend in Maine bought me a D-200 a more professional machine then my first. I have now moved to a D-7000 merely ten years behind the latest. Ha Ha. Here I come 21st century. I still don’t use auto exp. Auto Focus my eyes are not so good I have learned to tell it where to focus. I guess I use AF manually. lol

November 11th, 2020 another fence I have been shooting for the last year. I have four seasons but I lack morning light. This time of year around 8:45 am when the variables align I will go back. The variables being 50 degrees, Sun, low pain level. It could be a while.
Questions, comments appreciated just a tad bored these day. Look around the galleries here plenty of images from 1971- 2020.
Yesterday I was out for a stroll at 8 am people time. But 7 am sun time. There is a magic in this light crisp cool even in the heat of summer. I am up most days to see the light but the science project that is my body coupled with morning haze restricts my strolls.
Delicate light on a neighbors Poppy. Joe came out of his house coffee in hand to tell me I can walk into the yard to get the best angle of the light. The flower bed is his wife’s project he told me not wanting to take credit for her work that he loves. I love when folks greet me. I am more at home here now since the days of being the “creepy old guy with a camera.” LOL nearly six years now in Olympia.
There are mornings I stroll where the light, birds singing a cool breeze are enough. A few shots but just the light and the walk feed my soul.This was not one of those days. The grass at another friends house drenched in stark back light provided wonder to shoot.
Not over saturated in PS no in fact saturation and contrast was dialed down for these four images. Just my seeing, the perfect light provided for these exposures.
But this short depth of field highlights the importance of negative space. Here as important as the focused subject.
