Squirrel Photos

A few weeks ago, I was able to
photograph our backyard squirrel,
much to the chagrin of our dog,
who was kept inside during this time...

Hello, Squirrel

She wasn't too scared when I opened the door
to get a clearer shot...
It seems that she even posed after getting used
to me being in the doorway.

Looking at Me? - Squirrel

She stood statue-still for about 5 minutes,
while I made camera adjustments.
The darker edge on the left is part of
the door, since it was opened just a bit.
After awhile, I closed the door so that
she could get back to being a squirrel.

On and on....

Texas Sunset

It was the second day
of the new year and we
took a short road trip to
nowhere in particular,
watching the sun set
as we traveled on and on...

Time Flies

Fast Christmas Lights

Long time, no read -
It's not like I put my camera away and
stopped taking photos.

I've been reading other blogs,
getting ideas and practicing different shots.

Like the shot above -
Those are lights from the Christmas tree.
The shutter was open for a bit longer
and I moved the camera up
while it was open.

I like the feeling of fast motion
you get from looking at it,
much like time flying by.
