Day 286 – Orange Leaves


It took a while, but our tree finally turned. For about 2 weeks, the tree was mostly green with just the tips turning orange. This morning the morning sun lit the orange leaves beautifully.

Day 284 – Amazing Grace

The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Day 279 – Fall Harvest


I love this time of the year, the smell of Fall is in the air, leaves are ablaze with brilliant colors, and the pumpkins, apples, squash, and gourds are ready for harvest. Ahhh, Autumn in Michigan.

Day 278 – Gas Prices

Gas prices in the United States have risen so high over the last 4 years, that $3.67 seems like a very good deal.

Work Bench, shot with iPhone 4S and processed in Dynamic Light and Snapseed for the “grunge” effect, which I think fits nicely with this scene.

Day 263 – Simple Lines and Texture

The simple lines of the lights against the texture of the brick create a simple elegance. I processed this photo in Photoshop CS5 using HDR Toning to accent the detail.

Day 261 – Keys to Music


I see nice contrast between the black and white keys with distinct lines and angles formed by the spaces between the keys; to me, it’s an opportunity for a nice black and white photo. To a musician, these keys are the tools to open the door to an infinite number of melodies that make wonderful music. I love to listen to music, but I am not able to make the keys produce a sound that is pleasing to the ear. I am limited in my use of the keys; a photo in black and white.

Day 260 – Hand


The hand. We often take them for granted. We shake hands as we meet people, wave hello to our friends, and use them to make all types of “hand made” goods. When you’re hand is sore, you begin to realize just how much we all need our hands.

Day 259 – Night Scape


We went to Chicago to visit Justin at Concordia University this weekend. One of my favorite activities was the Architectural Cruise aboard the Sea Dog. What a great way to see Chicago at night. I wasn’t sure how my photos would turn out with so little light available and no tripod. I shot this one at ISO 3200 with a shutter speed of 1/50th second at f5. This is the Wrigley building. If you ever travel to Chicago, take a Sea Dog boat cruise out of Navy Pier.
