Day 86 – Keep On Rocking In The Free World

Still raining so it was back in the basement.   We hung the door to the rooms and put up all the sheetrock.

I have always liked how properly cut sheetrock looks nice and smooth were the blade has cut it rough and ragged where it has been snapped.

Day 76 – Prior Preparation

Prevents Poor Performance.  I have taken to sharpening my own knives.  That way I can always guarantee that the knives I use are in the correct “shape”.  I believe that success in the kitchen begins and ends with the knife.  A good sharp knife and using correct skills makes everything so much easier.  Cooking is like anything else, you have to put lots of time in doing boring tedious stuff that way when the moment of truth arrives everything is second nature.

This was a tough picture for me to get all right.  Getting the mill marks lit correctly without over exposing the metal was a bear, and get the right details in focus was just as hard.  This was as good as I could get, but it was fun to try.

Day 74 – Thriving

Yep this is the only plant in my yard that I would call thriving. Not really, but I think that weeds in general grow better with my “green” thumb than anything else.


50mm reversed f/5.6 1/60s

I love this picture. Not because it is great, but because I really wanted to throw in the towel today with this whole 365 thing. I am really struggling with it almost everyday recently. But I forced myself to get out and shoot something and try to make it work. Hopefully, tomorrow will be better.

Day 73 – The Finger

No, not that one. I was playing around with the 50 reversed. I probably took shots of six different things until I landed on my fingertip.


50mm f/1.8 1/80s

I kinda like this picture. The detail is really fun. I used a balloon as a backdrop and it worked well.

Day 59 – Herbolious

This is the most important herb in my pantry. I love basil or as the Italians call it Basilico.


50mm reversal ring f/22 5s

I spent a lot of time on getting this right and that was after I thought I had found a good picture. That has led me to another post. I have posted every picture I took yesterday in trying to get a picture ready for the challenge. Please check it out (link).

Day 52 – Toothless

If you don’t get it see the movie it is GREAT. Once again I find myself playing with the macro reversal ring.

This was a lot of fun to make. I probably would have kept playing, but my son wanted his Happy Meal toy back.  I like this picture, I got the focus where I wanted it I got the DOF where I wanted it.  I really love the detail.
