The wasps chew at the garden fence, presumably for their papery nests, and drink at my little solar-powered fountain. Chewing up fences is thirsty work...Took me several days and lots of cups of coffee sitting on the garden wall to get this shot.

Not sure if this counts as something most people would keep driving by--it's along a back dirt road in the middle of nowhere where people drive, but it's not heavily trafficked. Also, most people out there probably don't have a camera handy.

Fire from 35,000 feet



Boy, did I get yelled at for taking that set of pictures....

...was flying to Oregon from Minnesota, looked out the window and saw a fire on the ground over Washington. Took the shots through the window, ended up capturing the atmosphere and curvature of the Earth along with it.

Really, I hate flying, and wouldn't have even looked out the window if I hadn't heard the camera calling my name to take a picture....

"It's A Streetlight"


(A huge tree fell on parked cars on 5th Avenue this Spring, missed me by about 100 feet...and I took photos of the streetlight)

A cool reflection in brilliant sunlight that rendered the edges of the puddle black. Personally I think it's one of the coolest photos I've ever taken.

A sample of Malachite at the local Natural History Museum, taken with my Olympus PEN EP-1 and a 20 year old Pentax-K mount telephoto lens with macro capability, manual focus and exposure only. Hand held, so focus is a bit dogdgy. I love museums which encourage cameras (although they frown on the use of tripods, but I have a small portable one which I can sneak in under my jacket...)

I bought a new lens last week. I stuck the lens on the camera to play around with, then headed home. Pulled up to a stoplight, and this caught my eye. Would never have taken it, but... the camera was there, the man was there...

Unfortunately, I was just learning the lens, so I was worried more about focus than fov.

Walking from downtown to the riverfront in Redwing, MN with my wife and in-laws. My father-in-law, a retired photojournalist, commented that he was glad that "What the hell is he taking a picture of?" wouldn't only be directed at him anymore.

I'm not a photographer by any means. I can barely figure out my Nikon CoolPix L1 (which this picture was taken with). I knew I needed macro!

I tried to get some stuff for the macro bugs contest awhile back, but became frustrated with my camera's so-called "macro" setting, so the camera made me try a different approach ...

My 4-year-old got this as a present from his Aunt when she came to visit this summer. I forget what I was going for when taking the pictures, but this one stood out when going through the photos at the end of the day and I thought it was pretty cool.

I just got my Voigtlander Micro 4/3 to Pentax K mount adapter. The camera is an Olympus PEN EP-1, with a 20 year old 200mm zoom with Macro facility. I removed the EP-1's lens, and used it to test the Macro. Some nice results!
