8-26-14 Glory Days – Bookends

These are perhaps my two favorite photographs of the summer. This is the way they came from the camera. I spent a lot of hours getting these shots. I believe I featured a different version of them earlier this year but I kept returning and finally got what I want.  I will probably work them a bit and may show them again or not.

8-8-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

This weeks challenge is: Texture. (You knew that)

A little change in ISO and a little change in shutter speed certainly changes the texture of the water in Blackfish Creek.

ISO 6400 – f/5.3 – Shutter: 1/2 second

ISO 140 – f/5.6 – Shutter 15 seconds

Not all creatures care…

The Walrus and the Carpenter
Walked on a mile or so,
And then they rested on a rock
Conveniently low:
And all the little Oysters stood
And waited in a row.

“The time has come,” the Walrus said,
“To talk of many things:
Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–
Of cabbages–and kings–
And why the sea is boiling hot–
And whether pigs have wings.

Lewis Carroll

7-26-14: Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’

The challenge is something you love. It doesn’t actually have to be anything to do with summer but, why not.  This is from Wellfleet, Massachusetts, a place I truly love.

7-17-14 Throwback Thursday

I don’t do throwback Thursday. Never have. But recently my mother dug an old piece of my history up and I shared it on several forms of social media. So I figured, let’s go back half a decade to Cape Cod in July 2009 and watch the oyster farmers at work.

What did my mother dig up? I am sure this will be familiar to some of you…(personal information is blacked out). Without looking! Who knows what 1-H means?

I am trying an experiment tonight. You will know the video slide show worked (click to play) if you see no further typing from me.

7-13-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Relic

RELIC:

an object surviving from an earlier time, especially one of historical or sentimental interest.
  • a part of a deceased holy person’s body or belongings kept as an object of reverence.
  • an object, custom, or belief that has survived from an earlier time but is now outmodeD
We went to the Wellfleet Flea Market this morning. I saw lots and lots of relics – well not very many parts of a deceased holy person’s body – but lots of others. My favorite was this one:

Here are some other relics:
Okay – the World Cup is starting – I’m out!
