Gold, Blue, Silver?

Adding to the theme of a few past posts, I'm taking pictures that are just odd. Like this one. So I did touch up the last two. Can't decide if I like any of them, a few of them, or what.

Signature (pt. 2 of the pig)

So the pig returns! He goes to France:

He went for a ride on the swing: 

And then he got tired and wanted to snooze outside:

And I wouldn't let him so he walked away:

But he went the wrong way so he had to back track:

Nature (and the not so natural)

So stop signs aren't so natural- but their color looks great against the "nature"
The tree was just one I took- I'm not sure that I'm in love with it...

I was just thinking how many pictures I took here- and how many of them didn't quite work out! So never give up... even though 45/46 might be horrible :)

Signature (pt. 2 of the shoes)

So here is an addition to my series with the shoes: can you guess the weather?

Around the neighborhood

A few pictures of a church... I love the sky in these. I will admit that in the full color picture of the steeple the awesome blue is from the windshield of the car... I guess because the pictures are a little creepy this is my late Halloween post!

Ancient Keys!

Well... not so much.
So the other day I was at Lowe's and happened on an inspiration- old keys! So the ones I have really aren't so old but that's okay! And notice the background- window sills!
And I'm rather happy because I figured out how to edit pictures on iPhoto (notice the black and white!) If I haven't motioned it before- I have a rather old computer so when I look for help online its only for the new programs... so whenever I figure something out I'm rather happy!
Now I just have to find some old silver paint that will stick to the keys (they are actually gold)...
Key you later (he he...),

Signature (pt. 1 of the shoes)

Okay- so one of those really odd signatures- shoes! I am usually not a big fan of shoes but I think they are very useful for expressing weather. Weather is something I love to take pics of- simply because there is so much going on- and you are just one small piece of it! I have a few more I need to upload... but here is my series so far!
More later,

One of my favorite places to shoot a picture- an open or closed doorway. Because someone is always coming in or out, and every person has their own story to tell, you can never quite piece together everything that happens in a doorway photo.
This picture was shot by my front door- the quote reads (in case its hard to see in the picture) "Wait for it." The idea is to add to the potential mystery of the doorway by adding another dimension by telling you that something that is going to soon go through that doorway is worth waiting for...
I will add another pic, showing what comes through the doorway, soon...
thanks for reading!

Window Sill

window sills are another favorite place- don't know about you but there are always leaves ending up in my room! I love that windows allow light to come in- its a great place to take a picture with metal because the sun hits the metal in a lovely way...
I love nature but rocks in particular are a wonderful thing!
I have a few mice made of metal that I use often- and they were happy to oblige me another use!
thanks for reading!

Irony of Photography

Irony is something I take a great deal of joy from- so why not interpret it into photography?
Irony of Photography for me is sticking two things next to/ around each other, where they really should not be. I know this is not the proper description of irony- but it seems right for photography.
In this picture I have a watch next to a bullet casing from a gun. Irony: the bullet takes away time from people's lives and the watch counts people's time. They are two things, that if personified, would hate each other. The bullet wants to take away time and yet the watch wants more of it.

A signature

Signatures are on my top ten list for photography. A signature is simply having a unique object that can be found in various pictures. One of my signatures is this metal pig. I have no idea where it is from but because of its coloration I can add it to almost any photo.
Oh- and if you know of a place that sells sunglasses that would fit the pig let me know! ;)

A picture I took yesterday- I am a water person- I love the ocean.
It always makes me laugh when you think of the one thing that is impossible- water being under control. But water is never under control- it's keeping you under control.
Sort of the irony of photography- the one thing that can never happens happens in photography.

Then again, I just like the mix of wood and rocks...

Either way!
