Photos

Saturday, 6 June, 2009

I haven’t posted many of my own photos here. Maybe a couple from some Winter snapshots I decided to go out and take just after a snow storm. Taking pictures–what I do can not be called photograhy–is something I enjoy doing.

I am sure many of the shots I end up taking are basically…well…throwaways. Some garbage, blurry pictures. Some of them, however turn out pretty nice. And I am not one to toot my own horn. I will post a few, choice photos here, then end the blog with a link to my Picasa page.

Well, they mightn’t be choice photos, but, they are some of my personal favorite pictures I have taken. The first one is (fairly) recent. I took it on a short hiking trip at Point Au Roche State Park.

This tree was alive with a collection of white fungi.  It was quite a surprise to come across it–though I know it happens rather naturally.

Another of my favorites was taken right in my own front yard.  I took many quick snapshots in, and around my apartment.  This one was a little endearing.  As if you could just…well…I’ll let the caption explain it.  I might do a better job to see the picture with the words.

You could almost imagine something living in there.  I think a small bird did, once.

I could fill this post with pictures, but, some of them are sidewards, and cannot be rotated.  I will leave the post with one more, which is a picture I took in Florida.  We–being me, my father, my brother and my niece–were at the Florida Aquarium.  Birds are my favorite creatures, whether big or small.  Here is a rather beautiful pair…

I shall leave a link to my Picasa site, where you can see hundreds of photos–many from my trip to Florida–that I have taken.  A number of them, especially some from the Florida Aquarium, are blurry.  I apologize in advance for those.  You can visit the site here:  John’s Picasa Page.
