2013: Week #40 Photography

The countdown (or count up) to 2014 continues – tic toc tic toc – week 40 has come and gone.  I’ve been playing around in the low light on my morning commutes.  I figure most anyone can take a reasonably sharp picture, so how about a little motion blur and grain.  It isn’t as easy as it sounds.

The Autumn color is arriving and will hopefully be around for a bit.  I am anxious to shot some landscape and time-lapse photography.  This is my favorite time of the year and so far it has been pretty blah.  One more week and it is off to the North Shore though – can’t wait.

Here are my week #40 shots.  Have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Labor Day

And here we are – Labor Day, September 2nd, 2013.  Twenty days from the official start of Autumn/Fall.  This is my absolute favorite time of year.  Bring on the cooler weather, shorter days (so sunrise isn’t so dang early) and Fall color.  I am afraid this year the color is going to be nil if at all.  We have not had sufficient rain in what seems like forever; leaves are already dried up and falling from some trees 😦

The flowers and tomatoes in the backyard as lush as ever having been watered almost every day.  I think we may have only foregone water a handful of days this season.  It has been terrible.

Have a great holiday everyone!
