Florida Polytechnic University Entrance

Florida Poly entrance. The shape is actually a long oval but it looks round from the front. I have a lot of abstract and interesting photos and had trouble picking which one. We all had a great time and it was wonderful to get together! Most of this building was white and even the furniture was carefully chosen. Black and white photography works well! We were very fortunate that Judy set this up with the camera club so we all could be so free to click away without annoying anyone. ๐Ÿ˜€
Thank you, Judy!

The Grasshopper and the Peacock

We went for a drive and found ourselves at Forever Florida in St Cloud. Always some peacocks around the entrance. This one must be beginning to grow his beautiful tail feathers. I am sure the protein in this big grasshopper will be beneficial!

Used Canon 7D Mark II andย EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM at 200mm.ย 1/800 sec; f/2.8; ISO 100.

Crown Flash Cloud


Wow, Judy!!…Me too!! I have the same photo a little closer up! LOL! Used a Nikon P900 zoomed in some. I also dialed up the color some and sharpened a little. This may be called a Crown Flash cloud and it had “leaping sundogs”. Did you see them? It was out of this world!! Luckily I took some video not knowing what I had until I looked it up. Here is the video https://youtu.be/SpmlkX6tWpI I wish I had a better white balance in the video, but you can see the leaping sundogs.

Hangover

Hangover


Been trying to grow things since I have a lot more time at home. I am just a beginner at it. This flower looks sad, but it has some beauty.

Used Canon 6D and Lensbaby Composer Pro II and a Sweet Optic 35. Not too much editing as the Lensbaby setup seems to create in camera magic.

FlyinthePink

In the Pink

For my birthday this year I got a Lensbaby Composer Pro II and a Sweet Optic 35. I have been inspired by Anita Kram’s work and want to awaken my creative side again. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Lensbaby is a challenge and a half to get right with manual focus but this optic is very sharp and I was blown away at the quality! I used a macro converter in this shot and my Canon 6D. I was amazed that I got the fly in focus. ๐Ÿ˜€

BellaintheWoods

NWG’s been taking a break… Time to post again.
This is Bella my brother’s German Shepherd. Sadly Bella passed away very recently. My brother and his wife also sold their home and moved to a smaller home with less property to take care of.

I loved this beautiful 92 acre property in Anthony, Florida with prairie, ponds and most of all the dreamy oak tree forests. Bella always stayed by my side when I took walks through the property as if she was my guardian. I will miss her, the good times with family and my walks through the woods.
