Day Dreams

My daughter took this picture this past summer of her friend Ellanna. I think Kristen has a pretty good eye..
What do you think.?.. I converted it into a B&W to practice.
I need to go back and work on the eyes again.. But I think this is a beautiful photo of a beautiful girl..

Grandma's Delight.

We had a practice photo shoot at my daughter-in-laws house, We hung a sheet to get more light and a blank background.. . this was in the evening so we had lamps all over the dinning room trying to get enough light to make this work, with out a flash..( I was using my 50 mm f/1.8 )
Well they came out pretty dark so I had to do some cleaning up of the photos, This round corner board is from the Coffee Shop the link is on this page on the right.

Bed Bug Warning ..Please Read

He says that since much of our clothing, sheets, towels, etc. now comes from companies outside of America, (sad but true), even the most expensive stores sell foreign clothing from China, Indonesia, etc. The bed bugs are coming in on the clothing as these countries do not consider them a problem. He recommends that if you buy any new clothing, even underware and socks, sheets, towels, etc. that you bring them into the house and put them in your clothes dryer for at least 20 minutes. The heat will kill them and their eggs. DO NOT PURCHASE CLOTHES AND HANG THEM IN THE CLOSET FIRST. It does not matter what the price range is of the clothing, or if the outfit comes from the most expensive store known in the U.S. They still get shipments from these countries and the bugs can come in a box of scarves or anything else for that matter. That is the reason why so many stores, many of them clothing stores have had to shut down in NYC and other places. All you need is to bring one item into the house that has bugs or eggs and you will go to hell and back trying to get rid of them. He travels all over the country as an advisor to many of these stores, as prevention and after they have the problem.

Send this information on to those on your e-mail list so that this good prevention information gets around quickly

Letchworth State Park 2010

I found a group of turkey Buzzards flying in the cannon of Lecthworth this week while I was their. They are pretty ugly.

We got to the park pretty late in the morning so most of my shots are pretty bright. I loved this angle of the upper falls. Where I was standing was in shade.

My first try at slower shutter speeds with a filter on my camera. It sure works a lot better than with out one. There was a lot of shade here so I was able to pull this off. But less light would of been better.

The Fall colors this year so far have not been very vivid, But we final got a good heavy frost so this week they should be better.

Getting Down Low

My daughter and I went to a near by park and crawled around on the wet ground to get these photos of fungi..
It was a lot of fun. I hope to get back there this fall when the leaves change color and fall.
