I’ve been to this place hundreds of times. It’s land that was once owned by a old relative of mine who loved growing things, especially trees. I’m embarrassed to say in spite of all those visits, I never really “saw” those magnificent trees. In this photograph my wife is touching one. To me, it looks like she’s patting the universe.
If this isn’t obvious let me explain. This photograph is of the deep love my wife has for her Granddaughter. It’s absolutely wonderful to watch!
It was a gloomy, cool, rain spitting day and I was on my way to the Park Street subway station when I say this chalk drawing on one of its grubby walls. All of a sudden the sun came out.
Walking along the outer edge of the Boston Public Garden yesterday this was what I saw. Mind you this sidewalk is along Boylston Street, a VERY busy road. Sometimes the beauty of nature just grabs you by the throat!
This morning early it was gloomy, spitting rain and feeling like a “I’m not going out if I don’t have to.” kind of day. However, that feeling vanished once I looked out our back window into the enclosed courtyard below.
There’s as 16mm 1.4 lens that you can get for the Fuji X system that, in my opinion, is absolutely magic. Part of the lens’ beauty is that it can focus very closely. It’s not a macro for sure but you’d never believe how close it can get.
Take a hard look at this photo. The subject is a rather nondescript rose on its last legs. But when I shot it very closely and let Lightroom do some alchemy, the rose became another creature altogether.
When I first made this photograph, I was so fixated on the lovely blossoms I didn’t even see the Japanese Beetle munching on one of the petals. Now that the bug’s presence is very obvious, I find I don’t mind it at all.
