31. Butterfly

20050731.jpg

Another butterfly from yesterday's shoot. With so many butterflies at the Conservatory, it is a very great experiance to be there first thing in the morning, but really lacks a lot of the thrill of the hunt of going out and finding them on your own like this shot of a Saddleback Dragonfly, or this one of damselflies mating.

27. Time for a Snack

20050727.jpg

While Dave and I were in the Niagara Gorge the other day, these cabbage whites were very abundant. Dave was able to get some nice shots in and I was able to get this female resting on this plant having a snack.

21. Forget Me Nots

20050721.jpg

I found these forget-me-nots in my backyard earlier this spring. Leanne loves these so I know she will be happy about this posting. They are very difficult to shoot well though.

20. Caterpillar

20050720.jpg

I found this caterpillar last week having a snack while out with Scott and John. While not as exciting as the damselflies or dragonflies we were looking for, I still thought it might make a nice shot.

17. Waves

20050717.jpg

Not much too shoot this morning, so had to go back a few days for this one. Playing around with the presentation of the images over the past few days. I probably won't really know what I like until I have a few printed.

I believe reverse roofing is what Dave called this material.

14. Shackles

20050714.jpg

This is another shot from Casino Niagara that I took with Dave the other night. I envisioned these photos as Black and White when I shot them, though I still really like the various colours in the rust.

Yesterday's shot from the same location.

This image was found at the building location for the new waterpark near Casino Niagara. I have been looking for some industrial material for a while and finally found it! Some more images to come.

This was shot yesterday along with my first dragonfly. I am working on my technique. Each week is a little bit better.

08. A Touch of Orange

20050708.jpg

This was originally meant to be posted yesterday, but I chose another image instead.

This is the glass dome over the Fallsview Casino and Resort food court. I like the repeating patterns and geometric shapes in this shot, along with the small touches of colour in the two corners.

05. Sloan in Concert

20050705.jpg

Leanne and I went to the Friendship Festival in Fort Erie on Sunday night to watch Sloan. I squirmed my way up to the front for a few shots including this one of Sloan drummer Andrew Scott. Thanks to all who let me pass, except for the one lady who told me she was watching her kids, but seemed to be spending a lot more time watching the band, dancing and getting in my way than watching her kids. A little pleasantry goes a long way.

04. Blue Damselfly

20050704.jpg

This was the only salvageable shot from yesterday. Manual focus and a diopter adjustment our of whack do not play well together. I am very disappointed as the sunbursts coming off of the water drops on both the grass and the damselfly are amazing.

Scott and I were out this morning. Too warm for the bugs we are after, but it turned out to be a nice sunrise at Charles Daly Park, and I got a few nice shots of this building at Balls Falls Conservation Area.
