I don't often stand behind the backstop during a game. This was an entirely different viewpoint than what I'm usually shooting, intending to get our star pitcher in action.. I can really feel the momentum in both of these shots.
I don't get to catch the boys games very often once the season starts.. I'm usually at the girls softball games. I managed to get to the start of tonights dbl header... so I parked myself at center field with my big zoom.
I'm told time flies when your having fun ...it feels like time goes faster every day. This is my husband of almost 20 years. I hear the new trend is tattooed wedding bands. (note the tattooed ring finger on his left hand). We went together quite a few years ago and had the artist do a simple design I drew out. His is a slightly larger, more masculine version of mine. And no it didn't hurt much.. it didn't hurt at all in comparison to getting a ring caught on something.
This weeks job was repairing and painting this dining room and living room. The dining room went awesome violet (a sherwin williams color)... which wasn't too different from the original color. The upper photos were taken with my camera phone. They didn't really come out too bad. The true colors show much better in the lower shots taken with my SLR.
I had one more photo to include here but I decided against it. It was my husband and painting partner. Any time I want a shot of him I can't get cooperation.. I admit I point the camera at him pretty often. So of course, any time I'm taking a shot of a job(I take 'before & after' of all our work) there he is, like it or not, right in the middle of it.
I drove cross country going home from work today. I got a look at the little fat pony a neighbor keeps in the pasture across from their house. The snow is melting so I got a good look at his feet... long and all curled up. This view was from a parade last Fall, reminding me tomorrow I'll stop and take a picture of the pony.
Everyone has a passion, mine is photography. My day job as a house painter doesn't come close to being as rewarding or as much fun as when I have my camera in my hands. I'm a serious amateur working my way up to full time professional, selling sports shots, portraits and weddings. I have a Canon EOS 30D DSLR and regularly use 3 lens, 18-55mm Canon, 55-200 Promaster, and the sweetest of all is my 200-500mm TAMRON. 2 years ago I discovered HDRImaging and PhotomatixPro. It didn't take long before that turned into another of my obsessions. 2 long years and I still haven't trained the dog to sit still for more than 1 exposure.
