Took a walk in the woods on my way to grandma’s place & stumbled upon this.
On impulse, I kissed her gently & she woke up.
With her affinity for wildlife, we were thinking of moving to never-never land, but then she started looking for that apple again. 😉

Photojournalism class again. Tonight’s assignment – go to a predetermined location & do a series depicting the business. Not much inspiration at the first locale, but spotted this bunch inside a nearby bar.
Playing with my favorite toy on a gloomy afternoon.
Multiple exposures work best with a black background. Light backgrounds make for a ghostly image of the main (moving) subject.
I did (re)learn a few things about camera settings thanks to the trusty dog eared manual.
Photojournalism class again.
The challenge – go out to the market area and work on the aspect of color as a cohesive element in producing a photo story.
45 minutes of walking got these images.
I like the 1st one the best – a bunch of happy folk out for an evening on the town. Once your target is relaxed & in a mood, seize the moment.
Spent an ‘interesting’ time taking in Jaz & Robin’s heavy metal band, “Of Burning Empires”, at Mavericks on Rideau St. Hard to tell if the singers of this type of music have sore throats are will have. 😉
Also got to practice my photojournalism assignment – add motion to the image. Will use rear curtain for the flash next time.
Second class for Photojournalism.
The idea is to add dynamism to normal portraits.
Assignment: shoot one picture of subject using last week’s guidelines, reduce shutter speed and make necessary adjustments – then shoot again introducing motion. The subject must be in a dark spot. Set focus to manual. The flash will freeze the subject while ambient lighting illuminates the background.
Monday morning dawned clear & bright and I realized I had neglected to get a shot of my own gang.
Since we had some time before their flight, Cassandra arranged for us to return to Belle Meade for a photo shoot.
