Week 9 Tennis


This week I got to visit my extended family, on my dads side. The entire family except mine lives in the same town so whenever we visit it it a family reunion. David of course got everybody together to go play tennis. Not knowing tennis very well myself I mostly photographed it but even that was challenging because I wasn't very good at predicting where people would be so I could be ready for the shot. I did manage to get a few nice ones though this one being my favorite, David looks like he is working so hard hehe. Earlier in the week back in Missouri I photographed at the dog park and got this neat one of some dogs roughhousing. I like how the dust surounds them creating haze and adding to the sense of motion and activity. I also finally made it out to the coal plant in town to make some photographs like I have been meaning to do for awhile. The totally blue sky was a little bit hazy but the timeing was good right before sunset.

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 21 Porcupine

This week I got to see a porcupine in the wild. I was working on building a new chicken pen when I looked up and saw a porcupine sitting up in a tree eating. I quickly ran into the house and grabbed my camera. The porcupine was unfortunately high up and backlit for photography but I still managed to make some nice shots. It then got upset about me and David watching it and climbed down the tree and headed off into the woods. I also spent some time photographing a whole pile of hummingbirds at a feeder. I saw twelve at one time. I had so much fun that I set up feeders at home to try and get some more, and better, photographs of hummingbirds. 

Week 17 Northern Lights

 I had some fun photo projects this week. Firstly I finally got my first chance to try photographing the northern lights. It was very interesting because there weren't the usual flowing waves that you usually see photos of northern lights but instead the entire sky was lit up with green and you could see clouds moving over that green. That is why the land also looks green in the photograph because it was being lit by the northern lights. It was so amazing and the entier sky north and south was glowing. I also took a walk to a nearby lake and ended up making some nice photographs of the first flowers of the season. It was really fun reenforcing what I already knew about depth of field and being able to see its effect so clearly. It is amazing how it can change a photograph and one is not necessarily better than the other.
