Wordy Wednesday #456: The Final Chapter

I’ve been flogging Wordless Wednesdays then Wordy Wednesdays for many years. In fact, the first Wordless Wednesday appeared on March 14, 2012 and I thought it was time for a change. Next week, Inspired by the photography of Gary Bernstein, I’m starting a new series I hope will run for a year. In the meantime, I leave you with this.   “Mary and Joe At the Psycho House” Normally you can’t get out of the cars...

Wordy Wednesday #433: It’s A Snow Day

It may be that way in some parts of the country but not here on Daisy Hill. While our friends and colleagues in the East Coast are recovering from a massive Winter Storm, the weather forecast for the Denver area is partially cloudy with high temperature in the low 70’s. That forecast, of course, ignores the fact that the two snowiest months in Colorado are March and April. The above photograph shows me digging Mary’s...

Celebrating Wordy Wednesday #200

It all began a little more than two years ago when Canon Blogger Jason Anderson and I were having breakfast at a Denver restaurant and discussing our websites and social media. During these brainstorming sessions we could constantly bounce ideas off one another and on this particular day he introduced me to the concept of Wordless Wednesday in which the only information posted on a blog for that day would be a photograph. Having been...

Wordy Wednesday #184 “Having a Snow Day”

Last week I made some interesting comparisons about the number of sunny days in Miami compared to the Denver area. It turns out there wasn’t much difference but I also predicted snow was coming and although I’m not a meteorologist, we had snow that night. By comparison, the Denver area gets 54 snow days a year, Miami get zero and the US average is 25 days. Well, tonight we have snow expected, about three to six inches worth for the...

Wordless Wednesday #141 “It’s Been a Wonderful Year”

It’s been a wonderful year and I thank all of you who have enjoyed these little Wednesday posts featuring some of my favorite images. This Kodalith style image was made in-camera using the now gone-but-not-forgotten Olympus (nor-Micro) Four-Thirds system E-30’s Grainy Film Art Filter and overexposing the photograph. Exposure was 1/250 sec at f/5 and ISO 200 with a plus one and one-third exposure compensation

Wordy Wednesday #112 “Bingham Lake: B&W”

  Every day I try to take a three-mile walk, most times it’s up Daisy Hill, down another hill then up yet another hill to Bingham Lake. This kind of exercise in good for your health and if you take a camera along, as I strongly suggest, it’s great exercise for your photography too. As the old joke goes, practice is how you get to Carnegie Hall. Pianists have to practice their scales every day and photographers need to...

Wordy Wednesday #106 “Platte Valley Medical Center”

When I lived North of Denver, one of my favorite subjects to photograph was the Platte Valley Medical Center. (Much like photographing the gazebo in Parker CO’s O’Brien park is now that i live on Daisy Hill.) I originally photographed the hospital from approximately the same place and time of day but at a different time of year with a Nikon D3. The exposure for this D3X shot was 1/125 at f/22 and ISO 200, which was very...
