Best of the 365 Blog – September 2016

If you go back and check the dates on these photos, you’ll note that they’re all from the second half of the month. It’s so much easier to stay photographically active when work makes me get out of the house with a camera in hand.

This first shot is from the once-a-semester trek to the college’s flower garden:

On my way into work, I happened to spot a heron hanging out in one of the drainage ditches. On the one hand, it would have been nice to have had a longer lens with me. On the other hand, at least I had an SLR.

I neglected to bring the usual model in for the Intro to Photography class session on studio lighting. Fortunately we were in the 3D art room, so I managed to grab a simple subject off of a shelf. The gold filter in this shot is a nice addition.

There’s something about the extra bright lights of gas stations that makes for interesting photos.

The waning days of the baseball season were upon us (especially with the Royals having no postseason prospects). This is the view from behind our seats.

Here’s a lucky catch. This sign was awaiting installation on the newly-christened Learning Commons at the college. Catching it on the ground made for an unlikely-to-repeat-itself moment.

Sometimes one needs to stop and take a picture even when running late for class. The jumbled shadows of the table and chairs was too good not to photograph.

This huge spider built a huge web in our back yard.
