From a Box Brownie, to the latest digital gear, it is all just tools, or a means of stating who we are, at various points in time. The sophistication of our images has more to do with our personal growth, than the equipment that we acquire along the way.
Last evening, during an overload of hockey games, I became distracted and started to play with my camera. It must have been the rum I guess, but I decided to try some hand held long time exposures of our Christmas tree lights and decorations. This was one of the few that I shot with my 18 ~ 135mm lens at F11 for 6 seconds, whilst I was zooming the lens and rotating the camera during the long exposure. The colours and abstract patterns made by the lights were somewhat attractive to me, and it was enjoyable to be able to make a picture without using any photo editing software....as we used to say in the old days...."do it in the camera". Of course I had to use photoshop to put it on here, but that was it. Cheers!
After my last posting, I thought I was done with flower photos. The weather we have been having is strange for this time of the year. For the Windsor area, yesterday's temperature was a record breaker since 1941....does that mean there was a threat of global warming back then also?? Hummm! Anyway, this rather dilapidated looking rose is from my back yard, and even though it is not a "perfect" rose, it is beautiful none the less...just like people. Perfection is such a burden anyway. So, as this year draws to a close in the next week, I want to wish all of you who bothered to look into my little "window", a very very Merry Christmas, and a happy and prosperous New Year in 2016. Cheers everyone, and stay focused on the good stuff.....
P.S. Pat and Tony in Huntsville, Ont.. Congratulations on building your new studio....Great Stuff! Enjoy!
