I wish I had framed this better. I actually cropped a bunch from the top of the shot. I didn’t actually expect it to turn out to anything decent because it was so overcast and beginning to rain that day, plus it had bird poop on it which I cleaned off w
It was so peaceful and seemed so far removed from the noise and traffic of the city and work. Not that Springfield is a huge city like St. Louis or even bigger, Chicago. I think my wife would kill me if we lived in a city of that size.
These are lilies I think…anyone know? They are in my back yard. A word of caution about these things. You don’t want to rub up against them or you’ll get a ton of orange powerdery stuff all over you. From words of experience. :)
This is again from the same place as yesterday’s shot. A couple we met while camping had a bunch of old artifacts and such (old for America I guess) on their property. I felt like I was standing there in the early 1900’s for a brief moment. Then I thou
While camping we found this area a couple of miles from our camp site. At first we thought it was another camping area with all of the decorations and things scattered around the property. It turned out to be a couple’s home. They were retired and had
Just up the road from the camping area we were in this past weekend was this old Desoto. From what I can tell by comparing my shots to others I found on Google it’s around a 1950’s model. Totally rusted out with no seats inside it sat there soaking up t
I’m not the fishing type. I’ve tried fishing before and the part where you stand there and wait for the fish is relaxing and even fun, but then comes the part where you might actually catch a fish and I don’t like to touch them. They’re gross and I don’
It’s Sunday night and I’m getting my post for tommorrow (Monday) setup. I’ve taken much alergy medicine and right now everything seems a bit hazy! So, hopefully this shot looks like it’s supposed to. I’ll find out tommorrow when the haze lifts. We had
1Ch 28:9 “And Solomon, my son, get to know the God of your ancestors. Worship and serve him with your whole heart and with a willing mind. For the LORD sees every heart and understands and knows every plan and thought. If you seek him, you will find him.
Psalms 1:2,3 But they delight in doing everything the LORD wants; day and night they think about his law. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season without fail. Their leaves never wither, and in all they do, they prosper
The beauty of nature never ceases to amaze me. How you could look at all of this and not see God is beyond me. This year it seems I notice every little flower and plant. Looking at the world through a lens seems to make alot of things take on a differe
There were tons of these geese at this park I was at the other day. I am surprised it turned out as well as it did because it was really overcast and getting dark and I was shooting at a slower than ideal speed without a tripod. Moments latter most of t
This is a power plant just outside Springfield. I kept thinking cops where going to show up thinking we were terrorists scoping out the power plant. I realized after I left that I hadn’t opened up the aperature as much as I could have. It was a 30 seco
