Playing with the October Landscape at Schoepfle Garden


November 10, 2019

Fall color was past its prime by the time I got out to Schoepfle Garden October 29. Still, some lovely remnants remained. Besides photographing them as is, I played around with intentional camera movement (ICM) again. That I took the fourth photo here is thanks to Steve Schwartzman, who asked in the comments section of the last post, “In any of these, did you zoom your lens while you moved the camera?” I had not, but at Steve’s prompt, I tried it on this trip. Will try it again. What fun.

Observing Beauty in Senescence


May 4, 2019

In February my friend Lynda and I went to Fort DeSoto Park, which is sort-of near St. Petersburg (the one in Florida). I was having a hard time finding something photograph-worthy until I gave into my fondness for dying and dead palm fronds. Then I couldn’t get enough of them.

Spring Tiptoes In—1


April 30, 2018

A week ago Sunday I looked for hints of spring and found mostly the last bits of winter, photos of which posted this past week. But I also found the barest beginnings of the usually preferred season. You may have noticed occasional spears of grass in the latest posted photographs. Here are more, to be followed by less subtle signs. Spring has advanced since these photographs were taken, but perhaps you, like me, will enjoy lingering over the early stage.
