Somewhat Abstract

I said I was going to do abstract. Well, this is a little more realistic than I normally do, but I would say it counts. Split toning on all but one of them, mostly close-ups, but, yes, a little more realistic than usual for this kind of post.

Frost and Ice

Well, this isn’t Christmas decorations, but it’s not archive. I went on a spur of the moment photo hike today, and I thought it would be better to do the Christmas decorations next week and show you some of the ice and frost we’ve been having in my area this week. We’ve not had any real snow yet, and the frost melts off by midday. However, it’s enough whet my appetite for the visual landscape to come.

Here, the ice along the creek complements the leaf trapped in it.

The ice forms various patterns in different locations along the creek.

 

This leaf is covered in frost. It looks practically sugar-coated.

 

Next Week: Christmas Decor

I know I can find some archive at the very least. I will most likely finish what I started this week, or perhaps add some more.

 


Fall Leaves

It’s November, and it’s been windy out. In my area, that means most of the leaves are off the trees and blowing around the universe. You think you’ve raked, but there’s still more on the trees, and if your neighbors don’t bother, there’s no sense in doing it either. The last tree to drop leaves is the oak.

 

Way back when I was in kindergarten, I used to love collecting leaves. It was considered somewhat educational at that point in my life. Different species, basic plant parts,  that kind of thing. The main concern of a leaf-collecting kindergarten kid? Pretty! I was always sad when they dried out and crumbled away.

 

Now, I enjoy photographing fall leaves in all their states, from still a bit green to all dried up. The variety is amazing.

 

This one is so pink on the back it looks artificial.

 

It’s narrow red counterpart wanted a darker background.

 

Next Week: The TV Experiment or My Adventures in Stock Photography

Several months ago, I saw a set of photographs someone took at the moment they turned off a CRT. I’d like to try it for myself.
