Week 2 Knights and Castles



Well this isn't actually a castle but doesn't it kinda look like one. I think this is my most successful HDR, High Dynamic Range, photograph to date. I made a series of almost a dozen photographs all with slightly different exposures and then merged them with software enabling there to be details in the dark shadowy arch and the bright sky. This is actually a memorial student union and through the arch you can see the old capital that is now also part of the college. both of these buildings are among the most notable features of Columbia.

The HDR is my photo of the week but I also made some other nice ones on that photo walk. Doesn't it look like a castle a little? it was a perfect day for photography with some light stringy clouds, a setting sun and a deep blue sky. I also finally remembered to put my polarizer filter on which helped deepen the blue and saturate the golden sunset. I wish I had remembered earlier in the photo walk.

Week 26 Sheep Sheering

This week lots of things happened one of which was that we sheered the sheep which is not especially hard since ours are so friendly. Lise is the master wool cutting artison. We also went swimming in Lake Superior. Then I drove for two days, it was supposed to take three days, to get to FGC(Friends General Conference). 




Week 13 Farmers Market

This week I went to the farmers market and found all sorts of photographic opportunities. My favorite was of the basic lettuce but there were also more exotic subjects. There was something about how the red lettuce shinning out from the green ones. I also found a bee checking out some of the flowers and managed to make a photograph while it was holding still.
