Vintage Cars Can You Guess The Make and Model?


I haven’t been doing so well with my picture a day challenge.  I hope to get back on track from here on out.  Trying to find something to take a picture of on a foggy cold day was a challenge in it’s self.

I hope everyone had a great Holiday!  I was playing with my wide angle lens and trying to be creative snapped this one and thought it would make a nice mystery shot.

Wondering if there are any Vintage Car buffs out there that can name the make and model without seeing the rest of the vehicle…


What? Bad Dog, I Was Never Here!

What? Bad Dog...

What? Bad Dog…


I Was Never Here…

It was way too cold to go find something to capture outside!  The dog of course thought it was too cold too, and found the warmest, coziest room in the house.

He is the cutest dog and I let him get away with too much!

I think these are my favorite so far in the dog series.  I like the expression on his face in the first and I like how his movement makes him disappear before your eyes!  As though he is saying “I was never here.”

Now I have to wash the sheets again. My hubby has a no dog on the bed rule, that is clearly broken on many occasions! Ha-ha!

Another Moon Shot…I Can’t Help It, I’m A Moon Addict Now!! (I may need an intervention)

Moon Crazy

Moon Crazy

I like the first one best so far.  I am hoping to catch the moonrise as it crests the hills behind my house.  I want to see trees in the foreground.

My settings for this one are 1/8, F22 ISO Lo1, 200mm Using a tripod and later in Photoshop I zoomed in and cropped, then converted it to Black and White and played with the Levels a little bit.

I like the craters along the outer edge, craziness I tell you. This is the closest I will come to the Moon.  I have some what gotten over my fear of flying but to leave the atmosphere Hmm… I don’t think I could do it!

And a shout out to my fellow blogger on a quest to capture the Moon as well. You got this!!!

Editing… Can Be Fun!!!


Went out this morning… not because I wanted to, but because I had to take kids to school because of a miscalculation in wake-up times!!   ARRRGH!

So why not go take some more pictures that is the goal. One a day at least, for 365 days!

I was out and about last night and took some photos and found a bridge and hike that has eluded me for years!  So, excited I had to go back this morning to check it out during morning hours.  Since I was… in the neighborhood and all!

Today I focus on editing… well actually, I am going to point you to a blog post that helped me discover the History Brush in Photoshop!  Which among other tools I used to edit the picture above. I hope you liked it!

Silky Streams


Took my camera out on a fieldtrip.  I tried to find the perfect stream, don’t know that I found it but I did manage to capture that silky look I was hoping to get!


Yay me!  I discovered that I need a remote shutter release though!  The slightest of movement and the picture is a blur.


So many things to add to the wish list!
