Unplanned Event

September 29, 2011

For the last several weeks, I’ve been attending a class at Loeb School of Communication.  Each week there is a photo assignment due for the class.  This week, I had an photo assignment due within eight hours on an “unplanned” event.  I’m usually not a procrastinator, but with my imperative work schedule the last week, I’ve been placed in this category.  There is nothing wrong with being a procrastinator.  It’s just not my style to raise my blood pressure while limiting my time to think it through before submitting a deadline.  I guess this is the perfect learning assignment for me.

Well, it happened… I got my “unplanned” event.  I was on my way to work when I spotted this porcupine sitting next to the shoulder off the road eating acorns that have fallen off the Oak trees. I quickly pulled over, put my hazard lights on, and grabbed my camera with the 105mm (Macro lens) already attached to the camera. I tried not to disturb this little guy as he ate his breakfast. This lens requires me to be up close, closer than I’d like to be to a porcupine (At least it wasn’t a skunk.  My father has more experience with this foul-smelling weasel since his neighbor feeds them cat food.).  I was about 5 feet away from the porcupine and had only one shot to take before he turned his back and waddled his way into the woods.

Assignment was now complete for the week!

Maine Moments

Beautiful day in Ogunquit, Maine…   A day being a positive impact on strangers through conversation, a smile, or with a compliment.  Throw in good food, a few drinks with a friend created a wonderful day filled with great moments.

A day with my friend and our cameras in hand made the day even more memorable.  We both scouted the town for the perfect photo opportunity.  With no timelines and no pressure to “click and move on”, we were able to enjoy the day at our own pace.  We walked Marginal Way with our cameras ready in hand.  We stopped and snapped many photos whenever something intrigued us.  In between moments of shooting, we would share the angle of capture, thought process, and even new ideas for recapturing the subject.  It’s hard to find someone who grants you the time to be creative.  There are just a few people I can do this with.  I’m so lucky to have those that inspire, motivate, and share with me the same passion.

Ok, I need to explain the photo below… In one of the hotel’s gardens (off of Marginal Way), a dragonfly is found holding on for dear life as the winds try to pull it off. Look at how strong the wind is by how the dragonfly’s wings are angled. This dragonfly stayed on through many wind storms. After taking many photos and the wind finally settled, the dragonfly flew off.

Summer Garden

I apologize for not posting in the last couple of weeks.  I’ve had a busy couple of weeks: working, volunteering, and fostering a dog.  I’ll get back on schedule in no time. :)

Here are just a few more summer colors from the gardens in New Hampshire.  Enjoy!

Best Left Alone

Shasta Daisies, Lavender, Delphinium, Day Lilies, Astilbi, Bellflower, Yarrow, Pulmonaria… are all on show in my gardens.

As I’ve mentioned earlier in my “Hard Work Pays Off” blog entry I would share more photos of my gardens as the perennials change throughout the seasons. This photo is one of the several perennials I’ve taken pictures of this week.  I just didn’t find any of my other photos good enough to make the cut for entry.  This one photo deserves to stand alone in this post.

Sempervivum, Hens-and-chicks, Houseleeks
The rosettes transform into thick stems and create clusters of starry flowers at the top. This biennial is a great groundcover and does very well in most conditions (even with little soil).

Hard Work Pays Off

Gardening time!  I love it!  Fresh air, sounds of the birds, staying fit, being creative, and getting my hands dirty.  Not only do I do gardening for work, but also for enjoyment.  My yard has a few established gardens after eight years of maintaining, dividing and transplanting, and plant swapping with other gardeners.

With a request for botanical photos, I decided to use what I’ve work so hard at doing right in my own backyard and use what I have as my subjects.  Here are a few for you to view.  As the seasons change, so do the flowers.  I will post more photos as the perennials change.
