Karl's Photo Blog 

Welcome to my photographic journey. 

I'll be posting a variety of things with no determined schedule.

 

I posted a blog entry with a new photo every day in 2018! I'm very happy I completed it.  I first started a photo of the day project in 2012. Tried it again in 2013 and 2015.  I failed to complete it on the first 3 tries.  As they say, 4th try is, oh, never mind.

We have a bright moon, and partly cloudy skys tonight. 30s exposure gives nice movement in the clouds. Calm night, so the trees are very still.

Tree is up! It is ready for hanging orniments. Probably do that tomorrow. The angel won't light up... she is about 30 years old, so maybe she is done. I'll look for a new angel to top the tree.
Merry Christmas.

I photographed ducks and swans at Lake Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuge. It was a misty, rainy day, but the ducks didn't seem to mind. It is good to get a little rain on your face!

Found a huge flock of snow geese today! Traveled to the preserve at Pungo lake. Had rainy, foggy, but warm weather today. Too much water in the air for crisp photos like last year... but still a great day shooting.

Just a simple photo of Dusty. She posed while I grabbed the camera. One shot from above, one shot straight on. All done. Pretty bunny girl didn't mind this 2 shot photo shoot.

More Funko Pop! figures from the Harry Potter advent calendar. From left to right - Dobbie, Fred, Hedwig, Hagrid, Moaning Murtle, Ron and Hermione. They are cool. I'll have another batch next week, and I will probably use the advent calendar background next time.

I made another nice little tea light holder today. This is Cherry wood. Stands about 5" tall, and finished up quite nicely. Good to have a shop day!

I drove around tonight looking for nice Christmas decorations. I didn't find any over-the-top displays to photograph, so I had to settle for these pretty and tasteful ones! I'll keep looking so don't give up... I'm sure to find some great ones soon.

It's Wabbit Wednesday again. Grabbed my fast 50mm lens, and left the flash in the flash drawer... Dusty doesn't mind the camera when there isn't a flash going off in her face. She hopped around and I gave her a few treats as I took these pics. Do you know there are only 3 more Wabbit Wednesdays in 2018? Yep, not many left!
