Loft Window

Loft Window

This sofa in a barn loft window caught my fancy when Pat and I stopped to capture some images from this old barn. Is the sofa a place for resting or watching the world go by from a private hideaway? Or is it just resting until it can be taken away? I like to think of this sofa as a window to the world; a place to get away, reflect, and quietly watch the world. What are your thoughts?

This image was taken with an ISO of 800 for the early morning light and at f20 with the lens at 180 mm for 1/250th of a second.

Trillium

Trillium is a genus of 40-50 species that bloom in the Spring . Many species are threatened or endangered. In Michigan, trillium is illegal to pick on public lands but a species that is not endangered may be picked on private land with the landowner’s permission. This shot was taken on a shooting expedition with my friend Pat (http://imissmetoo.me/ ). It was a mostly sunny day at Hidden Gardens near Tipton, MI. It was shot with ISO 400 with a 300mm lens at f/10 and 1/640 of a second. The relatively fast speed was needed to deal with an early morning strong breeze Much that is “forbidden” can still be enjoyed in art . . . or in life! The other images (left) were captured the same day.

Swiss Church Window

Although my photos are now shot with a Nikon 5100, this shot was with a good quality point-and-shoot Olympus camera. The lighting worked on an overcast day to capture the character of this wall. (C)2003
