Week 39 Fall


This week I went on a school out-trip where we all photographed the fall colors in a natural preserve. I made a lot of photographs I like and really enjoyed using the scattering of ponds in my photographs. I also was really excited when I found this tree that was dripping sap. It was in an area that had burned recently and from the burned areas of the tree loads of sap was suspended beautifully. 

Also this week there was student success day at Central Lakes College. It involves many workshops and events all in a day free from regulare classes. The star show this year was a hypnosis. It was exceedingly fun watching and photographing the volunteers as they "watched" scary or funny movies, tried to separate their hands, touched their noses, forget their name and the number 4, and thought they were 5 years old to name a few things. It was a blast for the audience and for the volunteers they said it felt like they had taken a long nap and they didn't remember much. WOW.

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. 

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.
