Another marvel made possible by the Magnolia tree. I’m not sure how these seed pods work, but the end result is almost otherworldly.
Shortly after I took a picture of a relatively foggy morning, I found myself playing outside with my son before his bedtime. I don’t normally shoot in manual mode, but for this picture I wanted to get a nice set of light trails as well as the star patterns on the lights, so I adjusted the shutter speed for 15 seconds, aperture f/11, and ISO 200 in order to get the picture the way I wanted and not what the camera wanted. The only hard part was waiting for someone to drive by, which doesn’t often happen on this road at this hour. After 20 minutes a minivan kindly obliged my whims, and I was able to capture the evidence. Thanks, minivan!
We don’t get too many of these cloudy mornings here in Oklahoma, so when I left for work and saw the world around me shrouded in mist I was compelled to run back in and grab my camera. It reminded me of another Mist that I saw once, but this one was much better :)
We saw this black and orange fella just hanging out on a cool morning, and my brother had the rather cool idea of giving him some breakfast. He started by digging up a grub worm and dropping it in the web, which the spider promptly encased in silk for a future feast. He also added a cricket and a grasshopper to the insectular smorgasbord (click the photo to see my Flickr gallery, and you can find a picture of the grasshopper) but I like the composition of this photo over some of the others.
