This is that page where I am going to try (try is the operative word) to post all my photos.

Well maybe not ALL, just the interesting ones…I am going to also try to post them from oldest to newest so if you come back here, just scroll down to see if there are any new shots.  If I find that I have time, I will talk about how the shot was composed and if I used any altering software to the image.

Lightning shot from my house.  I poped the screen out of my bathroom window, set the camera on the sill and started taking photos.  I ended up setting the shutter to stay open for 30 seconds at a time.  I did not alter the photo in any way (other than sizing it down for web use).

Fun with lightning!

A cool house I sold early in 2006

 Fly in my back yard, this is as close as I am able to get with just the 18-55mm lens:

4th of july fun.  I really wish I had a tripod for this night, there were a lot of really good photos, but blury from the needed slow shutter speed:

Did I mention that he is crazy?

 a three foot sparkler!!!

Rodeo Fun.  All of these are cropped (a lot) due to the poor reach of the stock lens (18-55mm).  I took about 300 photos that night, and 30 or so turned out…10 of wich were worth sharing.

This cute little guy was somewhere between .25″ and .5″ in total size.  Taken with my new 170-300mm Zoom lens…with a macro feature.

Cute!

Taken with the new lens also (first day I bought it), a drop of water in a dirty coffee mug sitting in my kitchen sink.  I used a green rag (got it wet) for the back drop.  I also had to raise the contrast levels significantly to allow the water show up. 

Thirsty?

Still the same day with the new lens, I turned on the water tap and set the shutter speed to ludicrous speed

One last shot on the first day with the new lens, a low wattage light bulb:

Large spider saying hello in the morning.  (I replied with my boot after I took his photo)

Get a job you HOBO! 

Smoke makes at least one good thing, interesting views of the sun and moon.  (if you look close you may see that I need to clean my lens)

30pm...

A day at the park with friends: (you can see Angela, Jill, Ellie, Zeke and me in this photo)

The next 2 photos are both aimed at the same subject.  The first is taken with an 18mm lens and the second with a 600mm:

18mm

600mm!!!

A few moon shots, again thanks to the smoke interesting coloring.  I took these out my bedroom window at 6:30am:

Here is a little fly I found dead in my kitchen…I used plain cardstock paper, a one cent penny, and a low wattage lightbulb for the … uhh..well lighting.  The photo was taken with max zoom on my 170-300 macro lens.  This is the same shot, just a different crop:

Zzzzzz...   ZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

Same penny, different dead bug.  (and some super glue to hold him up)

The first good bee penny photo.

I just realized that I hadn’t added the photos from my other posts to the Photo Stuff page…so here it goes:

At this point I found out about www.flickr.com much better for sharing photos!!!
