Water Drops

I am still taking the photography course with NYIP and gaining more confidence working in manual mode..  I took this photo the other day and I think it came out pretty good.

Settings:  Sony a65-SLTV, 60mm, OFC set 128 and 64 (not sure for this image), 1/200, F/7.1, 800 ISO.

Is there anything that I could have done differently to improve on this image?

Rainbow Colors

Let’s Just Blow Bubbles

SOMETIMES . . .
Let’s just blow bubbles,
For no good reason
Let’s just blow bubbles,
Laugh a little, watch them disappear
Not even wonder where.
Smile and touch the rainbow colors
Watch them float in the air.
No reason why–
No goals, no structure.

SOMETIMES . . .
Let’s just
blow bubbles.

Something old

I mentioned to my mother a while back that I wanted to start collecting old cameras and display them in my office.  Well, she has started the collection for me.  So far she has found 3 cameras and an old tripod in different thrift stores.  The first one is a Polaroid Land Camera Model 800 built from 1957 – 1962.  Click here to see a quick video showing how to operate this camera.

This is a very heavy camera.

Frosty Trails

After editing this photo and converting it to black and white,  my first thought was trails on the moon.

What is your first impression?
