A to Z Challenge: P is for Pet Portraits, in the dark (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2018 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, P is for Pet Portraits, in the dark

I take a lot of pictures of kittens, in case you hadn’t noticed.   Sometimes…well, much of the time…it’s night which can make it a challenge, especially since I don’t like using a flash.  So, some of those kitten pictures end up what I will call dark and mysterious.

Here is a short selection of these mysterious beauties!

A to Z Challenge: O is for Oh, What the Heck is That??(#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2018 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, O is for Oh, What the Heck is That??

Still flying by the seat of my pants!

I don’t know about you, but I take a lot of pictures, usually macros, where after I go, what the heck?  But that’s all part of the fun!  And it’s not something I am likely to change any time soon.

Now, what are your best guesses?

A to Z Challenge: N is for Nature, unusual views of (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2018 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, N is for Nature, unusual views of.

Here I am, flying (blogging) by the seat of my pants again.  What to do?  I considered N is for “normal”, or N is for “Nasty”.  But then I thought, hey – let’s see if looking at photos I have taken over the past while gives me a brilliant idea.  So, N is for Nature, unusual views of.  Because it’s what my rainy Monday brain power has for you.  Let’s have a look!

Night shots with the iPhone are always an adventure, but I think they are kind of cool.

And then there are rain shots through the window of the car.  Roll down the window?  Why would I want to do that??

A to Z Challenge: M is for Mundane (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2018 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, M is for Mundane

Mundane is similar to Everyday, except that, for me, not everything Mundane is Everyday.

I take a lot of pictures of things I see around me.  Some of them are everyday, and some are just things I see that seem ordinary on the surface, but that strike me as more.  And, yes, thinking about perspective and post-production can help the Mundane become more.

Nothing more Mundane than soup for lunch.

Perhaps not as Mundane as other pictures here, but it’s probably Mundane for whoever these belong to.

Very Mundane…and rainy.

A little less Mundane with the depth of field?

I love lines – I don’t really find them Mundane anymore.

And finally…

A to Z Challenge: L is for Logs (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2018 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, L is for Logs.

Logs make great pictures.   Well, trees of any kind make great pictures.  Live trees, leaves, closeups of bark.  But I really like logs.  Luckily I live in a place where trees are in abundance.  Strangely though, all the logs I present today were in Saskatchewan and Alberta.  Go figure!

Still working on my depth of field.

Angles galore, with a little black and white to spookify them.

Gnarly stumps attached to logs.

Logs to crawl under.

A to Z Challenge: K is for Kittens (uncooperative) (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2018 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, K is for Kittens – the ones being uncoorperative.

If you follow my blog, you know that occasionally I take pictures of our kittens.  Sometimes, however, they are not the most cooperative subjects and pictures turn out not quite how I imagined them.  Doesn’t stop me from posting them though 🙂

Here, as an additional Kitten Thursday post, are some past uncooperative kitten photos for you!

A to Z Challenge: J is for Junk (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2018 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, J is for Junk.

What is the difference between Junk and Garbage?  Well, I guess some garbage can be junk, but there is some garbage I wouldn’t call junk.  Like, stale bread, or ripped bags, or some of the other things I remember putting in the garbage can earlier today (hey, the bread went in the compost, ok?)  Anyway, junk describes a lot of the crap, I mean stuff, in our basement.  Stuff we don’t want any more, stuff that probably doesn’t work anymore, or we don’t need any more, or is stained or broken.  That’s junk.

I don’t know about you, but I see junk all the time (aside from in our basement) – on the side of the road, left at the curb, in yards.  Sometimes people pick it up and, well, I don’t know what they do with it.  One person’s junk, is another person’s treasure I guess.

But, junk can make for cool pictures.  Here are some of my junkie photos.

Junk by the side of the highway.

Junk from days gone by at the Medalta Pottery factory.

Random junk by the railway tracks somewhere in Saskatchewan.

A to Z Challenge: I is for Imperfect (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2018 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, I is for Imperfect. 

Well now, what is a perfect photograph anyway? I don’t know, but I can tell you that I take a lot of less-than-perfect photographs. In this digital age, that’s ok because it’s easy to delete them.  But I’m wondering more and more if the imperfect ones aren’t more interesting.  Here is a sampling of some of the ones I’ve kept…imperfect because focus, motion, or just not getting the image I had in my mind.  But sometimes that ends up being more interesting!

A to Z Challenge: H is for Humble (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2018 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, H is for Humble. 

I like to take pictures of humble things – things that are ordinary, and often just sitting in front of me minding their own business.  Macro shots and post production sometimes enhance the interest of the ordinary, but they are not always needed.  I challenge you to take pictures of things you normally wouldn’t think interesting enough to take pictures of!  Let me show you.

Door handles are good – this is a close-up made black and white after.

This?  This is a BBQ implement – one part of a pair of tongs.  And yes, there are macro and post production going on here.

Nothing more humble than toast!  Nothing special needed.

This is my nemesis at the gym – the sandbag.  Haven’t been back in awhile.  I have to get back there!

A napkin – why not?

A to Z Challenge: F is for Flowers (dead ones) (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2018 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, F is for Flowers (the dead ones, that is). 

I love taking pictures of dead flowers.  As lovely as flowers look while they are alive, there is something really intriguing about them as they wither and die.

Here is a short presentation of dead flowers.
