It's been a while since I published photos here. I haven't created a set I thought worthy lately. To freshen things up a bit, here's a set I created to demonstrate the various themes and subjects I've shot over the years. Some of them may end up on display at my family's coffeehouse. Some of them have been published before, perhaps processed differently.
At first I was disappointed that our walk along Canal Park wouldn't be under the sunshine of the day before. As it turned out, the weather was a perfect complement to the icy, dirty condition of the lakeshore.
I've always been fascinated--captivated--with abandoned prairie dwellings, and with cars in the woods with trees sprouting out of their gaping window frames. Who built them? Who patched leaky roofs to keep their families dry and rested there after a day's toil? And who left them behind? They all have stories that they'll never tell, but I stand and listen anyway.
It's enjoyable to see our universe from new perspectives, and a good one is up close. With a set of inexpensive extension tubes a favorite standard lens becomes a fantastic macro lens, bringing small things extremely close. Those are mainboard mounting screws. They're smaller then your little fingernail.
