Here are some birds from my archives CB&W – Birds
Many of us enthusiast photographers are now at home and trying to think of what to photograph. Still life, food photos are the first things that come to mind. I decided not to do that. I am going to start scanning old photos, make a project of it. I have hundred of photos that are fading in albums and boxes. Now is the time to scan the best ones. I might even share some of my finds.
There has been a challenge going on to post a picture of your self when you were young. This is one of me in my twenties. Even then I loved the sea and beaches, somethings remain the same. So do not be surprised if you end up seeing photos from the past decades.
Share what you are doing right now, take a photo and post it. No edits, no tidying up to make better photo.Let’s keep it real. This is what I am doing now, editing photos. What about you?
AS most of us are in self quarantine due to corona virus. This is what behind my windows. First is from my office and the second is a view from my living room the other place I spend lots of time.
isn’t it one of the first signs of spring when snwdrops bloom in March. Today I spotted these in my garden. I did play around with the lightning to get different effects.
At this moment time, with the world in lock down, I have spent lost’s of time going through my archives. On the top is our Sisko cat that was run over by a car about five years ago. Veikka his brother is still with us, here is also a photo of him looking out the window , wishing that he could go out.
Sitting in the cafe and watching people in the street
Martins Beach on the San Mateo County coast, seven miles south of Half Moon Bay. The only way onto this scenic beach is a single road through private property. The owner restricted access to that road by displaying “No Trespassing” signs, charging parking fees, and locking its access gate.
We went there anyways as we we advised that it is a great spot for photography, as it was. We spent few hours there watching the changing skies over the ocean. The sky had different shades depending what direction you looked at and also as time passed to evening , that also had some effect. There we about five other people there also taking photos and one surfer also came.
somewhere on the coast of Big Sur we saw these men fishing among one of the many beautiful spots on this drive. I have to admit the light during this moment is great These are one of my favorites photos on a way, due to the lightning.
McWay Falls( 80-foot-tall (24 m) waterfall) is “that” waterfall in Big Sur that everyone has seen and many have photographed. That now includes me. The Cliff areas beyond the fenced boundaries, including the beach, saddle rock and the falls area are completely off limits. So the end of the trail was where you could take the photos. Our time of visit was not the best as the light was rather harsh, but we did not have the opportunity and time to pick the time of the visit.
Having a cup of latte at a local Café .
This is so much fun and meditating, piling rocks on top of each other trying it not to fall. Nice October afternoon was a plus. Would this be your kind of fun?
At this week shades of colors are found from sardius. The shades of colors do offer lots of variations.
Waiting in the car and killing time taking pictures
Lovers Point Park has above all become Pacific Grove’s best-loved spot for scenic photography. Because of its unique east-facing location, it is also one of the only spots on the West Coast where you can watch the sun rise over the water, but we were not lucky the morning was gray and misty. Still it was a nice spot to visit first thing in the morning.
Continuing with the pink theme; Lipstick. PINK lipstick. I edited them rather differently, can you pick the one I chose for my challenge. I most probably chose something other than most of you.
At this week shades of colours are found from sardonyx. Those who know me know that I certainly have hard choice of choosing. So, once again I made two collages, same pics, but different layout and could not choose which one to post. What can you do, you can either like them or not 🙂 that is your choice!
I truly enjoyed this town, I could have stayed there longer. Nice shops, art galleries, restaurants. Nice, clean town for tourists and locals to enjoy. We had breakfast at a place a local recommended, I have to say it was a good recommendation.
The morning mist was lovely, we slept so late that we never caught it at our destination, it would have given me few great shots, instead I caught them in the car. As quickly as the mist came it also passed. So here are few misty road shots near Carmel by Sea. I had fun with editing 🙂 the last picture is just as the camera caught it.
At this week shades of colours are found from emerald. Have a lovely week. Two takes on nearly same photos from Australia.
I have been working on my sculpture project this weekend, working with dark clay is so easier for me. This my work in progress on this one
Editing Black and White images is fun, I have a limited amount of photos of public transportation’s but I did find few for CB&W theme this week.
Trams seem to be my favorite public transportation to photograph. So there are trams from Helsinki, San Francisco, Melbourne. Buses and metro from Hong Kong. Ferry from Sydney and Hong Kong. Last but not least a train from Melbourne. I did actually find several as I started to look through my archives. Happy travels in public transportation.
215 (3/2020) is the color for this week at Värikollaasit Kalkedon. I did to variations this week.
