Of An Enlightened Mind
Last night, I got to watch Jupiter as it appeared to move from one side of the moon to the other.
a bit more spectacular than my current, ‘night moon camera’, (Lumix
FZ5), can capture, but the dust speck in the image, (above at 1
o’clock), is an image of Jupiter.
Today, got off to
a tasty start with an all organic breakfast. The fruit, cereal, and
milk were all as nutritious, and tasty, one can get without growing it
oneself. Do you know anyone who grows their own organic bananas?
The Treehouse flowers
looked happy, and healthy when I stepped outside to check the mail. I
had plans to go on a photo excursion to take some train pictures with my
neighbor, Margaret, down by the trestle that crosses the Sacramento
for a train, we noticed a large flock of robins descending onto the
Shasta Horseshoe Club, horseshoe pit area. The photography subject of
the outing was changed to robins.
between 75 and 100 robins, pecking in the ground for worms. A few came
close enough to get many good pictures of them. I plan to study the pix until I can identify the differences between the robins.
There was no
3:30, or 4:00 train to photograph, but it was a great day to snap
pictures of robins. I wonder if it is the same flock that I have seen
here at the Treehouse. I will have to compare pictures after I learn how
to tell them apart.
Meanwhile, back at the Treehouse, I took a few more pictures.
This resident bird
wanted it’s picture taken. I was experimenting with using the manual
focus toggle, so the bird posed patiently while I ‘dialed in’ a nice
portrait of it perched on the bush that it calls home.
I took this
picture of the colorful flowers that Steve grows in a flower box on his
porch, then headed up to see what goodies I might have brought back in
the Lumix FZ8.
I am trying
different methods to put groups of photos here, on the blog, in ways
that might show the light, shadow, and color dynamics of the original
images. Today’s video is a slightly better version of the video shown on
the previous post.
It still lacks
the vibrant color and detail that exists in the original pictures. I
have a couple more experiments left that might achieve the results I
seek. I will continue to make improvements each time inspiration chooses
to visit this experiment. In the meantime...
