Tried my hand at shooting the races at the Lorain County Speedway. First time I’d ever been there. Not particularly thrilled with how these came out. I was at the top of the grandstand, and it was starting to get dark out. Didn’t want to take my whole bag o’ tricks in, so I went with the best option which was the zoom. Not a low-light friendly lens. These are the best of the group. Maybe I’ll go back and try it again…..?
Things are bloomin’ once again and got some new stuff for 2015, too! After seeing the sunflowers in Avon last summer and missing out on the sale of those seeds, my daughter and I visited Pandy’s and bought 3 different varieties. Those to come later in the season!!
The Lincoln Funeral Train rolled through Wellington a few weeks ago. It is a replica of the historic train that carried the body of Abraham Lincoln from Washington, DC to Springfield, IL.
My mint is coming in!
Penny, gettin’ her lens time!
Kristen and I took a trip to the Conservatory at the LCMP’s Miller Nature Preserve in Avon. I had to find something with some color to shoot, because everything outside was wet, colorless and boring. Having been there before, and knowing what I’d find, I had to take a different approach. With the exception of very few shots, I took all my photos on the aperture setting. Pretty happy with the results.
While there are some really sweet photo ops this time of year, I’ve missed out on a few due to work or it just being horribly cold. Crashed out and recovering from a recent stint of night shifts, both of our cats, TJ and Penny, came up and joined me. Wanting to dust off the camera, I grabbed it and started firing. Both were patient (and comfortable) enough to let me.
