Today’s Photo: Through the Fence
Over my lifetime, I have witnessed the need to institute safety measures for many things. One of those has been the installation of fences along most of the bridges that cross major highways in the Atlanta area. I really don’t have an opinion one way or the other about them. However, they are truly inconvenient when you want to take photos of traffic and there is no opening for a camera.
Today’s Photo: Sunlight on the Barn
I was driving down the road the other morning and noticed this barn. The light was shining just right to leak through the trees and light up just a small area. If only the light rays would have been there this time.
Today’s Photo: More Spring Flowers
This spring has been on of the rainiest we have had in this area in years. It has also been one of the coolest. With all the rain, has come lots of growth and many flowers. It seemed like one day it was cold, rainy, nothing growing and then the next it was cool, the ground soaked and more flowers than you can count.
Today’s Photo: Sunrise on the Creek
This is another morning sunrise shot on a creek near home. The road runs right by this little waterfall. Every time I drive by here, I want to stop and take photos. Maybe I will make time one day soon.
Today’s Photo: Burning the Fog
I ran across this cow the other day just before sunrise. It was unaffected by my presence and let me get w few shots just before sunrise. Maybe he was just waiting for the sun to burn off the fog in the valley below him?
Today’s Photo: Nascar Anniversary
In 1998 Nascar celebrated its 50th anniversary. What better way to celebrate that than add a little touch to a classic car. I found this added to the gear shift commemorating the 50th at a car show in Cartersville Georgia.
Today’s Photo: Spring at the Cabin
This has been the first year in many that we have had a true spring. Most years it goes straight from winter to summer. This gradual change has given me an opportunity to capture a local cabin for three seasons now. I have Fall, Winter and Spring. Hopefully, Summer this year will lend itself to making the last photo.
Today’s Photo: Peter Pan at the Grand
Downtown Cartersville hold an old theater called the Grand. A couple weekends ago, we were walking around and noticed that they were showing Peter Pan. I briefly thought about stopping and watching the show, but then I noticed that it was intermission and did not think that would be a good time to start watching. Instead, I stopped for a shot of the theater goers lingering outside.
Today’s Photo: Motion
I am always intrigued by how some of the settings on a camera can be used to capture motion in a two dimensional photo. By simply slowing down the speed at which the camera takes the photo, you can capture what happens during more than just a split second of time. Sometimes, you can even capture minutes worth of time and tons of motion. This one is just .6 seconds long and look at the amount of movement in the water during that small time frame.
Today’s Photo: Midtown Atlanta
Another shot from my short walk around midtown Atlanta. One of my favorite types of photos are the light trails from vehicle tail lights. I hope that the city of Atlanta put a camera size hole in the fence on the south side of the 17th street bridge. There is a great angle to get the Atlanta skyline. Until then, this will have to suffice for that location. I will have to share the shots of the building near the middle that looks like two sails bending toward each other sometime soon.
