Welcome to day 248 of 365 photos…I had some photo fun today with a photo that I took on the way home from Edenton the other day. Mr. B and some friends are building a pergola in our back yard and I thought that I should stay available in case they needed my help.
With all the rukus in the yard, we didn’t even have a bird for me to take a photo of so I started to play with this photo of the house. Everyone that follows this blog knows that I LOVE old decrepit houses. I really like the two story ones and always stop to take a photo. I have taken other photos of this house before but I always took them from another road which was a side view. This time we took the road that went past the front of the house and I took some photos of the front. I will show you the photo that I like the best of this building first. I played around with colors and really like this one in black and while the best. and this is what the photo looked like originally. It was early evening when I took the photo and the light was poor.Camera: Nikon D7100 – Lens: Tokina 12-28mm
Focal Length: 17mm – Aperture: f/6.3 – Shutter Speed: 1/250 second – ISO: 800
Then I had to try “just one more thing”. I just recently saw a post that someone wrote on “orbs”. Probably every one but me knows about “orbs” but I saw some and thought they were really cool looking. So here it is, my first “orb”. What do you think? As much as I love the fun “orb” of the house, I think the black and white is pretty special.So that was my photo fun today. I’m going to try to get to the trail tomorrow. I’m hoping that I will see some different birds since the weather has cooled a bit.
Glad that you stopped by my self-project of a photo a day for 365 days. If this is your first time to my site and you wonder what this 365 days of photos is all about, click HERE to read the original post. Settings are added to the photos so that I can remember what I’ve used and can see if any future photos done with other settings turn out better or worse. Remember, this project is all about my learning more about photography.
