Where I’ve been

I’m very sorry I haven’t posted my “1 photo a day” routine. I haven’t had access to all of my equipment and can’t currently afford to keep my Adobe Cloud subscription going.

Take A Step Back

I took this at a very good friend’s house in Pennsylvania. Each year these plants pop up, even with their yard maintainance. They must be very hearty plants.

I had taken a series of photos like this in different locations that, to me, inspire urban decay or a sense of nature taking back the planet. It’s also reminiscent of post-apocalyptic stories like The Last of Us or Revolution.

“Stone Vine”

I got to pay a brief visit to a friend’s house while on a trip to Pennsylvania. It was unplanned and I arrived shortly before they got home.

So. I meandered through the backyard snapping photos and caught this little guy crawling its way across one of the stones making up a sidewalk.

It just reminding me how nature will grab on and take back an area.

Purple Flower

This reminds me of a line in a song I really like, “A purple flower came to visit me and landed on my window.” by a rock band called Undercover, on their album Devotion.

This photograph is slightly older. I took this at Quail Hollow in Hartville, Ohio. I also used my awesome Tamron 90mm Macro. I love that macro lens. I saw they made a newer version of it that includes a silent motor housing or technology and image stabilization! Wow!

I’d love to get that new version. It’s so very very hard to get crisp photos from a macro lens without stabilization.
