Ah, the Smell of Irrigation in the Morning…

The road to Odessa was an interesting one. Though the forecast called for a mildly overcast day, I encountered a lot of strange weather–rain, horror movie levels of fog, ominous storm clouds, then oddly striated sections of clouds that let the light pour through in slices.Read More

Boats At Bay

I had seen a photo like this (albeit one much more masterfully crafted) a long time ago and was fascinated by the juxtaposition of clouds and sea with rows of boats sandwiched between and reflected in the water.

In that photo however, the water perfectly reflected the boats in such a way that you could flip it 180° and not be able to tell the difference.Read More

L’Aquàrium de Barcelona was our last stop on the great Spain trip. It took about 30 seconds to fully explain to the cab driver where we wanted to go. Apparently, aquarium is pronounced ah-KWAR-ee-oom in Catalonian (though, it seems like uh-kware-e-yum would be close enough). And after all that, it was pretty much around the corner from where we were (but it was nice to get out of the sun for awhile after walking around Montjuïc Castell.Read More

Fun With Water Balloons

When I heard that the subject for this months show and tell would be water, I honestly had no idea what I would submit (if anything at all). Maggie had shown me a shot she found online of a water balloon bursting captured at a really high shutter speed. It looked cool enough, but it was lacking something. But what?

Ah, yes. It needed someone stupid enough to stand below the bursting balloon!Read More
