Almost 57 Years Treasured
I've been taking a class from the Photographic Society of America (PSA) and one of the modules was use of depth of field to draw the eye with a macro shot. This shot of my wedding ring was one of my entries. It is best viewed on black
B and W and SC Bracelet from Jasmine
There is a yearly challenge on 365 ( a photo site I post to) in February of shooting and posting a month's worth of black and white photos. On Valentine's Day you can add SC (selective color...usually red). Jasmine gave me this beauty years ago and I was shooting it also for my PSA class
Black and White Clouds and Rocks

Black and White Daffy
Another shot for both my PSA class and the 365 challenge. This was our first daffodil of the year and I photographed it on a mirror
Blotched Tiger Salamander
I wanted to shoot a salamander for my PSA macro class and kept taking my camera on our hikes...but we kept not seeing any. Then Jim was turning over the soil in the greens' bed and found this unusual visitor.

Hummer In the Rain
It is so cheery to have a couple of hummers overwinter here and bring their beauty to our window
Light Coming Through the Fog In Grand Canyon
On that bitter cold morning in the Grand Canyon, two friends and I had hired a local photographer to do a private workshop with us for the day. We got up well before dawn to shoot the sunrise and were met with pea soup fog. Finally an hour or so after the sun rose, we got to enjoy the light begin to show on the far side of the canyon
Lion and Lamb
Another macro shot for my PSA course
Moss
I just thought this was kind of pretty. playing with depth of field
Ocean Beach
We were driving home from an early morning beach walk and pulled over for a quick shot of the amazing clouds
Pep Ventosa Rosemary
A friend in England turned me on to a fun new technique developed by Pep Ventosa. Usually it would be done outside perhaps with a tree. You shoot the same tree (or whatever) as you walk 360 degrees around it and then combine the shots. This was done inside with a single rosemary branch and I turned the vase instead of walking around it
Pine Cone
Another shot for the 365 black and white challenge
Rocks and Smooth Water
Just as we were about to leave Bandon after the sunset, I saw this shot and sat on my butt to take it!

Walking in the Sunset as the Outlet Curves to the Ocean
We've only had a couple of sunsets this month but this one felt worth going out for. It was taken from the Waxmyrtle trail. If you look really carefully you can see a tiny walker out by the ocean
