Today is the day: I look forward to taking a visit around WordPress today!
My contribution to Monochromia this week
While photographing a political event, I was distracted by the light coming in through the window and the shadows it created.
** Note! I scheduled this post a week ago, and completely forgot. After a week of hype and build up, I happily woke up to snow! Photos later 🙂 **
It was such a pleasure to have a little time at home, to get the house in order, to take care of some business details, and to visit with a few friends. As the day progressed, I couldn’t help but be distracted by the light.
Thanks for your patience as I share the results of playing with the light.
This may just be the first time that I’ve done a portrait of a Tettigoniidae, more commonly called a Katydid or a Bush Cricket 🙂
What can I say? It was all about the bokeh (at least I’m pretty sure that’s what it’s called. Your thoughts, Joe?)
They are also known as long-horned grasshoppers, although they are more closely related to crickets.
My dear friend is grandmother to twins, a boy and a girl, and yes, I did capture a few really nice shots. Since I left it to the parents to share them, I thought I’d post these two photos (get it? two … one for each baby … ha!) from inside their very beautiful, almost century old home.
The muted light was awesome, and I just wish I’d had a tripod to improve the outcome.
You see what I saw though, right?
