March Madness

Last sunrise of March 2015.  Decided to mix some glass into the morning ritual.

The other Portland

Whenever I have been in Oregon I always find so much to see.  And I always have to joke with the west coast Portlanders that we were the original Portland.  Supposedly it was a toss up between Boston and Portland for the biggest city in Oregon back in the day.  Obviously Portland won the toss.  Boston Oregon would not have fit in my opinion.  These were actually taken in the very active fishing port of Newport Oregon, one of my favorite spots for reflections since their fishing fleet has so much color and the sunsets provide great light.

Glass half full

Most times I consider the glass half full, sometimes half empty but try not to.  Other times I just look into the glass and just enjoy it whether it’s full or empty.  Glass art from another perspective.  Visit to my parents house provided some fun glass sculptures to toy around with.

Frozen in Time

Found these cool ice formations on my skylight the other day and couldn’t resist.  I love how ice comes alive with a background as you move around it.  One of them reminds me of a profile of a witch or goblin.

Inflatable Pool Chair Meltdown

Mixed emotions about the Blizzard that never came to be.  Whenever the weathermen talk about massive snowstorms with expectations of 18-24″ it’s hard not to get a little excited along with the dread of thinking of the cleanup so I was mostly happy but a bit dissapointed when I woke up to a couple of inches and no more snow coming down. But….I’ll take it considering my back could use a break from the shoveling and roof raking and I don’t even want to think about the possible flooding in a month or so.  Ahhh, water.  I love it when it’s not on my roof or in my basement.   So, this is a shot I took over a decade ago with my old 35mm Canon EOS Rebel XS that my Dad had gotten me while I was in college.  Thanks Dad. 🙂  This was a reflection near sunset of two inflatable pool chairs and a white EZ up tent that were on a dock that I noticed while swimming.  To me it looks like colors melting together.

Frequency…

Man, I missed a spectacular sunrise this morning due to not just getting up and going but rather relying on the weatherman who mislead me to believe there wouldn’t be a good one. At least there are others who made it and posted their shots.  This is another local photographer who just went or was better informed than myself and he got some great shots.  Benjamin Williamson:  https://www.facebook.com/BenjaminMWilliamsonPhotography/photos/pb.106845419433267.-2207520000.1423796116./742140815903721/?type=1&theater   I guess I need to make my frequency of just going no matter what more of a constant.  Light, color, sound, waves, ripples are all about frequency and so far I’ve managed to post something every day this year except for one I believe which is a pretty regular frequency.  And I’m happy that some of you reading this now have been checking out my posts with frequency.  I have been checking out all who visit.   Thank you.
