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?

When a tree cries

Walking on the edge of the woods yesterday with Arai and we spotted this tree oozing sap.

Arai said that the tree is crying.

 

 

 

Not the best picture but it is what we saw.

Between Flights – Update

Last week on WP and Instagram I posted a black and white photo of a fly resting on a flower which I called “Between Flights 2” and, well it got chosen to be in our local newspaper, The Courier-Post, for todays printing.  This is the 4th photo of mine that has been printed in the paper!

A Calvin Klein Model and Shelly

We were stuck in the house yesterday morning as it was raining here in New Jersey.  While cleaning the kitchen I noticed a turtle out the window.  So needless to say I had to photograph it.  Before I go get my camera I showed Arai and he is also on the same page as me and said “we need to take a picture of it”. He is truly becoming a “mini me”.

I was in my PJ’s and slippers and  Arai only had on his boxes and t-shirt.  He hurried up and got his umbrella and his mothers flip-flops and came running outside with me.

Could he be the next model for Calvin Klein?

 

We took loads of pictures of the cute little turtle and Arai decided to name him/her Shelly.

 

Arai worried that Shelly would get hit by a car.  I debated on keeping it as a pet but decided against it.  This is a wild animal and probably would die in a short while if it were to suddenly be confined.  So Shelly is still wild and free and alive.  He was still out this morning.

A Thief has been Captured

I have been filling up the bird feeder almost everyday.  I thought that Arai was playing with it and causing the seeds to spill out.  He kept saying that he did not do it, but I know that he plays in this tree.

I filled the feeder about an hour before this little thief was captured.  Arai called me to tell me that there is a squirrel and the he is eating he seeds.

 

The thief has been captured!

A Table and a Chair

What could be dangerous about a table and chair?  When it comes to Arai, anything can be dangerous especially when he is being super busy and attempting to “hide” from Mom-Mom.

He went down a little too fast and too hard.  For his troubles he got a little knot on his forehead.  But that was not the end.

After hitting his head he decided to get down.  This is when he and the chair went tumbling to the ground.

In the end Arai and the furniture were ok, no more bumps.
