Young lily pads toward the Light

I took my Argus 75 film camera to Crosswinds Marsh. It’s a fun camera that I bought for $10 at an antique store and the images have a unique look to them, if/when any of the photos actually turn out into something decent. This image of young lily pads under a blue spring sky with the glow of the sun above, and along the horizon, is one of those images from that camera I like.

Face off

This raccoon was enjoying the bird seed I put out and wandered a little across the deck rail.  Eli and Macy saw the raccoon and the raccoon saw them, but seemed to realize the window provided a safety shield between them so didn’t care much.  Nonetheless, it was an exciting few moments for my dogs who then ran out through the doggy door.  The raccoon scampered down the railing and under the deck before Eli and Macy reached it.

Japanese maple leaf (1)

After a spring rain I noticed the brilliant red of the Japanese maple leaf that had fallen onto a beautifully green leaf of a plant below the tree.  With the freshness of the rain the colors were vivid and the leaves shimmered from the wet and the soil was dark.  Since nature had provided such a wonderful display of shapes, textures, colors, and sheen, I just had to come up with a composition I liked.
