Barns in Approaching Storm


Approaching Storm. I was out walking with camera when a storm came rapidly up with much lightning and thunder. In this particular shot, I did not catch the abundant lightning, so I added it from one of the others. Posted by Hello

Keith Talks to the Fish


Keith talks to the fish at Belle Isle Aquarium. Until last month, the Belle Isle Aquarium was the oldest still operating Aquarium in the world. Now it's closed. Send them money if you want to save it. Posted by Hello

Snail at Silk Creek


Snail at Silk Creek

f/2.8, 1/30s, 8 mm, ISO 95, early evening after thunderstorm, fairly dark sky. I think this may be a "bad" (alien invasive) snail, but I thought it was pretty. I was fascinated that I could see through the shell. I took the picture with my point and shoot pocket camera and played with it [almost] exclusively on Picasa (to see what Picasa is up to). I used practically every effect and tuning available for color. On Photoshop, I resized it to 500 pixels and removed one small blob of crud. To see the same image somewhat larger, click here.

Visiting the Peonies, June 7, 2005


Visiting the Peonies. June 7, 2005

My mother, Margaret, is in a nursing home after a brain tumor and other problems have disturbed her memory and perception and made it impossible for her to care for herself. She loves flowers, but is unable to go outside on her own. Posted by Hello
