Flowers of Spring Have Finally Arrived

I took a break from my blog for a while, which always seems to be the case during the cold dark months of the year. Now that Spring is in full bloom here in Auburn things look so full of life and so colorful it just brings new inspiration to everything. Even though I took…

This Week’s Project 365 with Sunset Over the Fillmer Farm

Wow yet another week has come and gone. This is my weekly Project 365 post which includes a week where we had our kids and grandkids out to visit from Colorado and go to do a quick family photo shoot one afternoon. The images below are the chosen images for Day 223 through Day 229. You can…

Project 365 [Day 170] Retreating into the Safety of Our Shell

I captured this big guy crossing the road over by our house on the way home from work yesterday, and while he was sitting in my truck I took this shot with my iPhone. My intentions were to keep him from getting run over by picking him up, putting him in the trunk, and bringing…

Project 365 [Day 158] Tree Swing on the Farm at Sunset

This is one of my favorite places in our backyard, and of course if you have been around this site for a while you will recognize the tree swing, but I keep finding unique ways to shoot it. I'm working on getting all the photos on my site of this swing to be searchable through…

A Good Friday Feet on the Farm with John Deere

This is a very late version of Friday Feet today, but it's technically still Friday. This late post is because We had an incredible, very humbling, Good Friday service today-tonight, (a post which will have to wait until tomorrow when I can get to the images). After finishing up a book review for Liberty this…

Foggy Spring Meadow of Funnel Spider Webs in Morning Dew

Last Thursday we had a convergence of sorts in Auburn where super high humidity came in and stayed overnight, leaving us with thousands upon thousands of Funnel Spider webs on the ground. The common Funnel Web spiders derives its name from the unique webs it spins. The Funnel Web spider kills garden pests, but the…

Backyard Photo Walk with a 35mm Lens and Some Bokeh :: Photos

I love doing the back yard photo walk, mainly because you really don't have to go anywhere to shoot. Every time you go out in your yard you will be surprised at how many new things there are to shoot each time you try it. It doesn't seem that way at first, especially since you…

Dagger Kayaks on the Apostle Islands and Columbia River

My wife and I in days past were quite active paddlers. We spent about 5 or so years kayaking all around the country in between conventions (our work), and because we were always traveling we were able to kayak in some really neat places. Just to name a few, we went out to the caves…

Waterfall on Society Hill Road in Lee County

A little local flavor for Friday. I drive by this waterfall all the time and have never in all my years of looking at it stopped to take a photo. There are a few small waterfalls in Lee County and this is one of them, privately owned of course, but still quite beautiful and visible…
