Karl's Photo Blog
Welcome to my photographic journey. I'll be posting a blog entry with a new photo each day for 2018. Check back each day.
I first started a photo of the day project in 2012. Tried it again in 2013 and 2015. Giving it another go in 2018.
Cherry tree is all in bloom. Spectacular! #StayThisWay #CantStayThisWay
and a pano that went wrong...
Pretty sunset. Not spectacular, but still very nice. Blue sky and contrails of RDU traffic.
Upgraded my home security. This should do it! No one will mess with this bad ass.
More treasure from the box, Susan B Anthony, Sacagawea, and George Washington
and I have one more dollar coin. I am saving for a future Treasure box post!
Here is a souvenir tie tack I've had since I was very young. An Adirondack guide and his boat. Very cool piece.
The museum is no longer named the "Adirondack Museum" It is now "Adirondack Experience™ The Museum on Blue Mountain Lake". But it will always be the Adirondack Museum! https://www.theadkx.org/
Went to the pet store today. Dusty needed her manni peddi. They always have puppies in the store. I want to bring them all home. Or at least let them out to play!
Reminded that it is still winter... at least for 8 more days. The rain turned to sleet and then to snow. Very pretty and a bit messy. Messy is good.
My old high school ring. Mayfield Central School class of 1981. The Panthers. Mom ('56?) was a Panther, Dad ('54?) was a Panther, big sister ('79) was a Panther.
Spent all day on the UNC campus in the Dean Smith center shooting the NCHSAA 2A basketball championship games. Some pretty good basketball - nice to shoot in such good light! Sure beats the high school gyms. Last games of the 2018 winter sports season. Last year I didn't shoot any spring sports, so this might be it for the school season... and maybe beyond!

White on white. Using the new white backdrop that arrived yesterday. Works with the pretty white light that I have.
A nice bowl of apples. Red Delicious or Macintosh?
Dusty is greeting a new friend. The Bunny Crossing bunny has been on the wall for a week - it was time for him to get down and play. And they did! Dusty thinks it is always good to have a playmate come over. Have fun kids!
Piece of Tuxedo Chocolate Mousse Cake to be precise! Yummy. From Costco. Been looking at this in the case for a month or so... finally gave in and bought one and very glad I did!
And now for something completely different! It is a rainy and mildly breezy day. I thought the pear tree in the rain with a long exposure would be interesting. No so much. A short exposure was pretty tho - so here it is:
... but then I thought about the cake and gave that a try. So two completely different pics for today. Enjoy!
