Way back in 2016 a couple of good friends and I took a long week-end trip to Sedona, AZ and during that trip we went to the Grand Canyon and one of the things we did was taking a helicopter tour of the North Rim.
I was just telling someone recently that these images have been marinating on my hard-drive for a long, long time because I really didn’t like the images too much when I got home. My aerial photography “eye” needs a lot more practice. That got me thinking that I hadn’t even looked at these images in years so I dug into my archives to look at the images. With the passing of time I’m not as disappointed in them. Here’s one.
I’ll be working on more images from this trip so, you may see more in future posts.
I’ve been staying close to home these last two weeks because while visiting our Grandson’s we took them to the park and Littlest was afraid to go down the tube slide by himself so I went down with him. The second time we were going a bit fast so I tried to slow us down by putting my foot along the wall, but we didn’t slow down my body kept going something went crack and both my knee and ankle hurt. My knee is still tender and I haven’t made it as far as the mailbox and back yet. I may have to go see the doctor if this keeps up.
Did you happen to see the recent full moon? I did but, didn’t photograph it. I did go out to look at the moon close to its setting a couple of mornings later and made this image from my street.
I did go out for a little bit birding yesterday and saw some good birds. I’m still culling images, but will have a few to share in upcoming posts.
That’s all that’s new here. What’s going on with you? I do hope your week is going well!
I was in New Orleans for a week and had so much fun, and took a lot of photos of doors.
This one is from a restaurant in the French Quarter, but I didn’t pay attention to which one there are so many. I’m in catch up mode so, only one door today, but there will be more. 😄
This is part of Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors. If you have a door or two to share head on over to his blog and join in the fun or just head over and see the doors others have shared from all over the world. Just follow his directions at the end of his Thursday door post.
I took my D810 mounted with my LensBaby Composer Pro out for a walk looking for flowers in the neighborhood the other day. I put the Soft Focus Optic in the Composer along with the 16mm macro adapter; here’s a few images from that walk.
Arizona Sunflower at f/2- I love that blur!
a Rose f/4- I wanted to get a bit more in focus so stopped it down a stop.
It looks like my LensBaby will get along fine with the D810.
I’m off for a “ladies long week-end” with a good friend. We plan to hike in the mountains by a lake, and do a lot of photography. I hope the sky is clear so we can photograph the stars at least one night.
I hope you all have a lovely week-end. I’ll catch up when I return.
