31. Daffodils #2

20050331.jpg

Another shot from yesterday. I received some flowers just after I moved in, and so needed to buy a vase. These daffodils were too small for the one that I purchased though, and I was advised against using a mason jar... the coke glass would look better I was told.

30. Daffodils

20050330.jpg

The Canadian Cancer Society has been selling Daffodils each year to help raise money for Cancer research. I received my assortment today and decided that this would make a nice shot for today's image.

29. On Duty

20050329.jpg

What a beautiful day today and I didn't touch my camera. Busy on the house, still working on getting back into the bedroom.

This was shot last September at Buckingham Palace.

26. Fixes Anything

20050326.jpg

I was shooting this for the texture and the shading on the egg, but my egg seemed to show little texture, and having only brown eggs, I wasn't even getting the effect I was looking for with the shading. Then I saw my trusty duct tape and came up with the idea of 'fixing a crack' in the egg.

I've done a version in Black and White as well.

25. Southern Comfort

20050325.jpg

Another studio shot. I've used one small flash to the right of the bottle and glass aimed at the background for a high key effect with another to the front left diffused by several layers of diffuser for a softbox type illumination. I did try to ignite the shot glass but it would not stay lit. Surprising for a 100 proof spirit. I'll try this again another time with Black Sambuca. That one will work I believe. If not, more fun trying!

24. Spying on the Falls

20050324.jpg

Feeling better today. TOmorrow I think I'll be out shooting.

This was shot last year. I like the composition, but it was a pretty dull day. I'd like to reshoot this one.

23. Sawblade

20050323.jpg

I was still sick yesterday. I spent a lot of the day with Leanne in Hamilton, where I happened to have been born this day, 31 years ago.

As I am still sick, no new photo. I have some ideas, just not the energy to shoot with. Too bad, because it was such a beautiful day I am sure I would have found some nice shots in the Niagara Gorge.

This is another macro of the saw blade from my father's jigsaw currently on loan for house repairs.

An obvious title. Another shot from our London trip.

Still sick...tomorrow is my birthday, this is not how I hoped to be spending it.

21. London Street

20050321.jpg

Still sick today, so this post is late and also not recent. It was from a trip Leanne and I took to London last fall. I like the capture of motion in this shot.

20. Jigsaw

20050320.jpg

Still sick today. I would love for nothing more than to get outside but my body is not allowing it. Great way to start a vacation!

Another basement studio shot. I am not sure if I like this better after making it monochrome or before. Any opinions?

19. Drugs

20050319.jpg

Still sick... I spent the day in bed getting up only long enough to take my temperature and to pop one these little pills. Don't know if they are helping or not, I still feel like crap.

16. A Piece of the Past

20050316.jpg

I have had a few requests for photos of the house. I fell asleep before getting to take any last night so this is one I shot the day I took possession. Probably not what they are looking for :). I guess they are more than welcome to start posting their own images...

Other house shots:

13. Leanne

20050313.jpg

This was shot at the same time I was shooting my last two posts. This shot of Leanne was only a test so I could set my exposure and make sure the camera was in focus before turning it on myself but it turned out better than expected for a test shot.

12. Self Portrait #3

20050312.jpg

Another self portrait as I indulge in a little narcissism. I think I will shoot a few more tomorrow. Then, on to a new subject.

11. Self Portrait #2

20050311.jpg

Keeping up with my self portrait exercise...

I have converted this to a duotone because I wasn't sure if I like the colour in it. A straight Black and White was also not quite striking enough for my taste's.

Those who have known me for a long time may remember this pose. I have a similiar shot from 10 or 11 years ago which I think was a stronger image.

Self Portrait. I think I may do a series of these. Satisfy the vanity in me.

Happy Birthday Mom.

06. Soft

20050306.jpg

I shot this while doing some flower macros. As I was focusing, this image showed up in my viewfinder. I like the soft pastel colours the various flowers created when so out of focus.

04. Snow Covered

20050304.jpg

Another shot from Dufferin Islands (same location as yesterday's shot) here in Niagara Falls. The colour is a little different in this shot. I think it make the image look a little colder.

This is what it has been like here for the past couple of weeks. I've spent 1 - 2 hours each day for the past couple of days shovelling snow, and I am running out of room to put it!

I have a new shot to show tonight. Shot this evening (what else to do when the snow is falling, and you've already patched as much as you can stand in one evening) in my dining room studio.
