Mask

Digging through some boxes in my garage to see what I can get rid of.  Came across 3 Clay Art ceramic masks that I have had stored in boxes for the past 15 years.  Decided to sell them on Ebay since they are not doing me any good just taking up space.  Thought this would make a good weekly photo.  It was singing to me to convert it to black and white 🙂  Shot with my IPhone.  Placed on a black velvet cloth and shot from above.  Not much editing accept converting to black and white.

Silence

Some days when I don’t have time to sit down on my desktop to play with my photos or do anything creative I always have my IPhone and photo apps to play with.  This is a selfie that I applied a filter to from the Vintage app.  Always fun to see what I can create from a plain, unexciting selfie 🙂

Frog

WOW I am so behind with my weekly photos.  Anyway I was monitoring the Chryalis (week 40 post) in hopes of catching the butterfly emerging.  I checked on it for 3 weeks.  Went to do something else for 15 minutes and the butterfly emerged with out me 😦

So I ended getting a photo of this frog on the bark.  Applied Topaz Adjust to make it tiny bit more interesting.  Shot with IPhone 6.

Chryalis of Gulf Fritillary

While examining our gardenia I noticed this Chryalis.  Checked it out online and found it to belong to the Gulf Fritillary butterfly.  It was so cool to watch it move.  Maybe I will get lucky and catch it coming out.  Shot with the Olympus TG4 on microscope mode zoomed in.  Settings were f4.9,1/100sec/18mm/iso800.

Lying in wait

These spider’s web blended in well with the surroundings.  I did not realize there was a spider there until I positioned myself at a different angle.  I am in a black and white mood it seems.  This is the third black and white photo I have submitted.  I boost the contrast using curves in Photoshop, sharpened, converted B/W.  Shot with the Olympus TG4.  settings f4.9, 1/400sec, iso250, 18mm.

Love this girl!

Was watching TV when my little girl jumped up in my lap on top of a pillow and made her self comfortable.  I looked down and my heart just melted at the look on her face as she started to doze off.  I grabbed the closest camera I had, which was my IPhone6 and took a quick photo.  It is a bit grainy because it was at night but I love it all the same.  I converted it to black and white and boost the contrast.

Do you mind? I am eating lunch.

Did not realize at the time I shot the spider that it was eating a smaller insect.  Lucky me! Shot with m Nikon D300s and 105mm lens.  Converted it to black and white for something different.  My settings were f3.5, 1/200sec, iso400.
