Blank walls? Here’s the solution:
These two photos come courtesy of an evening walk with my husband and the dogs. A local farm road, dirt no less. One of our favourites to walk. I love the lone tree down this road, and it sort of eerily reminds of the (horrible) hanging trees in the southern States from years past.
I promise that the next few weeks shan’t be bird related posts. But today we have a sparrow of some kind (with his lunch), and my ever-elusive barn swallow (who appears to be watching me).
Killdeer are such strange birds. If you’ve never seen one defending it’s nesting area, it will act hurt to draw your attention away from it’s “nest” (It really just lays them in the lawn, not a real nest per se), to try and lure you away from the eggs. And they run. When they run, they kind of remind of Fred Flintstone when he bowls.
Back on May 20th of this year, we had a partial lunar eclipse. Normally you need a special Mylar filter to capture it, but Mike had suggested using his welding helmet. The one he had at home was caked in grime and very pitted, but I gave it a try. The resulting images weren’t crisp, but it definitely gave you a good idea of what the scene was. Now I know for next time!
Last week I took down my first solo show, ’150K From Here’. It felt good to have the show, and I feel proud of what I accomplished. The hardest part of it being over is trying to decide what to do next. I have a few ideas rolling around inside my head, just waiting for the right one to take hold! Part of me is also enjoying just shooting whatever I feel like at the time. The next big thing for me, photo business-wise, is to start booking more clients now that I don’t have just the show to think about. So I am looking forward to the future and what it holds, and I am proud of what I have achieved. Here are a few views of the gallery as it opened a few weeks back (not all works are in the photos). There are still pieces available for purchase, if anyone is interested. I will also be adding some of the photos to the keyfoto website over the next week.
Just a reminder, that you can still go down to the Cre8ery on Tuesday from 12-6PM for the last day of my ’150K From Here’ Exhibit.
One of the reasons I love living outside of the city is the wildlife. Sure, you see some squirrels and birds in the city, but there are many more here, and new ones arriving all the time. With spring and fall we get the geese, often nesting in the field behind our property. I took a wander out there to test out a new telephoto lens a month or so ago. None of the geese stayed to nest (we and our neighbours have dogs, so I think the geese felt it wasn’t safe), so no goslings. Maybe another year.
Another dog-themed post today. I had hoped these would have turned out better than they did, but alas, they did not turn out as I had envisioned. I still found them amusing, so I thought I’d share. We took the dogs to The Floodway today for a little ‘fresh air’, and I strapped the GoPro on Cash to see how it’d work. I tried the first on on his back, and the second on his chest. It didn’t work as well as I would have hoped, so I’ll have to do some more thinking on it, or rig some sort of better harness myself. Note: not for those who get easily motion sick!! - Oh, and there are 2 because I missed the post last week. Slightly new look to the blog. Cheers!
The new job is keeping me pretty busy these days. Not so much going on photo-wise. Hopefully that will change soon. The deer are starting to come out of hiding near our place. And the geese are arriving by the hundreds. This week’s feature is a shot of the creek bank near our house, where some deer had been sleeping recently:
