Walks with my son: Doylestown, PA

So I will be renaming or, at least putting ‘Random Photos’ series on a break for the time being, and adding the above mentioned title. It is more fitting since I usually do these when I take my son out for a walk, or when we as a family go out for a walk.

I will try to use different camera and lens combos so at least each set of shots that I do will be somewhat different. I hope you enjoy these as much as I have enjoyed taking them. For the first set of shots, I took with us my Pentax K3 with the SMC Pentax 100mm F/2.8 WR Macro mounted for our walk.

We walked by someones front garden filled with flowers, and it was quite active with bees doing their thing. All shots were edited in Lightroom to taste.

Please leave us some feedback below, like our FB page, or just like this post.  It would be better too if you can follow us, so you won’t miss out on stuff you really can miss out on…lol.  But seriously, we’d like to know your thoughts, good or bad

Random Flickr Photo of the Day – April 25, 2014

This is an oldy, but quite the goody. I found this bug or beetle sitting lifeless on our floor leading out to the deck. Thought before I discarded it, I should take few photos.

Random Flickr Photo of The Day

One of my personal favorites, shot at the Storm King Art Center in The Hudson Valley, NY. (http://www.stormking.org/) It’s a massive expanse of a space, and the fields were brimming with life.   It took me a good while to get done taking photos of bees, lady bugs, and of course butterflies.  View my photoset and see what’s what.  I personally love the photographs that came out of that trip.  I used my Pentax K-20D with a DA* 50-135mm Lens, processed in Lightroom.
