I shot this a few weeks ago (iphone, I think?) during a walk with our dog Katie. I touched up a few things in Lightroom and thought I would share. I hope everyone is having a good week and staying healthy. Talk to ya soon – MDLRead more "Stop and reflect"
I was lucky to capture this image on a recent evening walk. I stopped to take a photo of birds roosting on a communications tower downtown. As I raised the camera to compose the photo, the sound of a loud motorcycle cracked through the air and startled the birds. I was lucky enough to snap […]Read more "Spontaneous reaction"
We experienced an unexpected treat a few evenings past. A very active thunderstorm was passing to our south. Even though this storm was producing an unusually high amount of lighting, thunder was rarely even noticed. We drove to the highest point in town and I was able to capture these images. All of these are […]Read more "An unexpected evening treat"
So, I dusted of my camera and headed down the street in hopes of shooting some of the local happenings. Living in a rural town, photo opportunities can often be limited. However, I am trying to practice and train my eye to find interesting subjects even among the often mundane and sparsely populated streets where […]Read more "Shooting Small Town Streets"
This is my one of my camera’s, my “main” camera so to speak. I have placed this camera on a undeserved pedestal. A pedestal tall enough to keep it from harm and as it turns out…keep it from use as well. It should have never been placed on a pedestal at all. Today, I’m sharing […]Read more "Too Precious?"

So…Confession…I’m really drawn to black and white street photography. I admire those who are brave enough to snap photos of complete strangers in the streets. I would like to give this genre of photography a try. But, I’m hesitant. I worry that someone may react negatively to being photographed by a stranger. I know this […]Read more "Small town streets"
While walking Katie yesterday we passed by a newly installed barber poll. This little barbershop opened for business on our street a little over a month ago. He seems to be doing well so far. While walking past I noticed the fish-eyed reflection at the bottom of the poll. I pulled out my phone for […]Read more "Fish-Eyed Refection"
A stroke of vibrant colors in the morning sky, I had to snap a photo to remember the site, What a welcoming start to the day.Read more "Morning Colors"
As I mentioned in my previous post, we are now living downtown. Our dog, Katie, is an older lady of 13 years. She stays indoors with us and we walk her about a block and a half a few times a day so she can fertilizer the vacant lot (turned city park) down the street. […]Read more "Random Photo & Thoughts"
Waterlogged Blossoms In my neck of the woods, we are in our third day of heavy to moderate rainfall. I believe this rose bush in my backyard has absorbed nearly all the water she can hold. Thanks for viewing, I hope everyone has a creative & wonderful day. – MikeRead more "Sunday Snap 06.09.19"
Bushy-Tailed-Rail-Runner I caught this guy lounging on the backyard deck just a few moments ago. I attempted to join him but he wasn’t having it! He promptly ran off to the security of a nearby tree… Thanks for viewing, I hope everyone has a creative & wonderful day. – MikeRead more "Sunday Snap 06.02.19"
Backyard Visitors… This morning I hosted a trio of visitors in my backyard. I noticed them as I was pouring my coffee. I grabbed my camera and snuck out the front door, carefully making my way towards the backyard. I didn’t want to startle my unexpected visitors. I shot these photos at a distance, the […]Read more "Sunday Snap 05.26.19"
Rusty Wind Chimes on a Rainy Sunday Morning… A quick shot from my humble abode this rainy morning. The air is still and the chimes lay dormant waiting on a gentle breeze to stir them into singing once again. Thanks for viewing, I hope everyone has a creative & wonderful day. – MikeRead more "Sunday Snap 05.05.19"
