Algae Pond

I know, I know - I'm massively behind on this "daily" photo thing. OMG what a month it's been. Summer's here and things get a lot busier in this little seaside village. It's about time to rename my blog "An Occasional Photo" again.
But anyways, enough about that. This is a little stagnant pond off one of the driveways on the residential portion of my route. I saw that fallen tree laying there all wet in the green muck and thought it would make a cool photo so here it is after some P/S work.

The Haircut

So I got my hair cut on Sunday, and maybe a bit shorter then I expected (well OK, a LOT shorter than I expected), and so of course everyone at work was razzing me about it. And I played along, (it really was quite shocking the first time I looked at it too). At one point someone said "I'll bet you won't go back and get your hair cut there again..." and I said, "Well I don't really have a choice" and she said "Why?" and I said

".......it was my wife."

So but here's how it went down - Everything was fine and Shannon said "OK, you're done. Go see how it looks", so I went and looked in the mirror and it looked great but maybe a bit long on the top.
Have you ever seen one of those artist's paintbrushes that kind of fans out.... well nevermind. Anyway, I thought it was a bit long on top so I asked her to take a little more off. That was where I went wrong. You see, I forgot that Shannon does not have a "Medium" setting...

Caramel Apple Stand

The San Juan County Fair is upon us. This evening I was called upon to join a group of people to judge the Photography exhibit. Wow that's difficult to do. So many very good photos to consider. Anyway, we finally finished around 9:00 or so and I went out to see how the carnival people were doing getting things set up for tomorrow and maybe shoot a few photos for myself. So I got some of rides being assembled, and of people doing last minute adjustments to their fair booths, but this one is my favorite.

West Side Sun

We went out to Whale Watch Park today with our friends from Switzerland, and WE SAW WHALES! So we felt very good that the whales were there for our friends. Seems like most of the time when we go out there, we've just missed them by 1/2 hour, or we find out later they came by a 1/2 hour after we left. So today was good. This photo was shot after they were gone and we had just finished our picnic lunch. Very warm afternoon with the sun beating down. Good times.

Before the Sunset

The sky yesterday about 1-1/2 hours before that awesome sunset. I wish I would have been able to go somewhere with a good view to shoot that, but I guess this will have to do - This is looking toward the West down our street while there were rumblings of thunder in the skies.

Angry Sky

First of all, yeah I know - I need to change the name of this blog back to "An Occasional Photo" or something like that rather than "Photography Every Day".... I've been missing a lot of days lately. It's all my other blog's fault, honest! But anyways, here's one for today - This is the sky right before it opened up and dumped on us for about 15 minutes. (well maybe 30 minutes before...) It's from several exposures all combined into one HDR and I enhanced it a bit with Photoshop and Lightroom. Shot it from my front yard on my lunch break.

Mmmmmmm mmmmm good!

OMG this was the best burger I've had in a while. I went down to a work buddy's boat at the port docks the other night and he BBQ'd up some totally jammin' burgers. My hat's off to the burger chef. Add a little golden hour sunlight and what a pretty picture.
