I have a passion for trying to grow Orchids. The difficulty is quite high for most. I have four plants that I give a great amount of my time and effort to keep them going. Carefully watering and feeding them and placing them in the right lighting. I have been so fortunate that I had one plant bloom in March 2022 and as of July it still has the same blooms and going strong.
After the threat of a severe tornado forecast and getting away with some rain, I headed out to the local Carnival in Bensalem, PA. I set myself up to practice some in-camera motion (ICM). With the help of a fellow Camera club friend, I did pretty well. It was a new learning experience and I had a blast.
The harsh lighting is not great for Photography but great for showing off the shiny vehicles for sale. I managed to find some interesting things I felt were in my wheelhouse.
A trip to the Philadelphia Navy yard is always a treat. On this trip you can focus on the colors. The color chosen on this day is Yellow.
You never know what you will find or who you will meet on your photo ops. Today visiting Fishtown after a 2-year hiatus…what a surprise to see how much it has changed, so much rejuvenation. Always something interesting to photograph. On my journey, I hear a shout-out…make sure you are shooting in Raw. I see this biker ride by, and suddenly I recognize the voice. I’ve heard it before, but not in Fishtown. Ha, it was Fro Knows Photo, taking his morning ride. He came back to do a little have a nice conversation with our group. Cool. If you are drawn to windows and what reflections you could see. this is the place to visit, Fun Day. Finished with Lunch at the Front Street Cafe.
Spending a cloud-covered day in a faraway abandoned schoolhouse in the coal country of the Northern part of Pennsylvania.
It is worth the trip and the dust and dirt. A day well spent when you come home with dirt on your pants because the best images may be the ones you sat on the dusty floor.
Mixed abstracts that can be found interesting on journeys taken from your home and to many places that can be explored. Some are New Egypt Market – NJ, Carbondale – PA, Paxon Hill Farms, New Hope – PA, and maybe a local Junk Yard
