Mars with polar ice caps

Mars with polar ice caps

Mars with polar ice caps visible. Dark areas are dust storms while redish is planet surace. This is my first Mars shoot and the final images are a bit blurred as I was taking these as our sun was coming up (~6:30a). Better images to come.

Peony bud with ant

Peony bud with ant

Friends, my computer was packed up ahead of the movers picking up all our stuff on Tuesday, June 20th bound for Fairfield, Iowa. We left Asheville, North Carolina, driving, on Thursday, June 22nd. So, this was my last chance to post an image on Flickr until after the dust from the move settled. (This is from my computer archives … I’d had no chance to make any new photos in the midst of preparing to move.) I hope that I’ll be able to circle back around to photography, and to posting regularly on Flickr, once I’ve recovered from the move. I also look forward to being able to relax into viewing and responding to your photos. Due to health issues, I’ve been away for too long, but … I’ll be back! 🙂

Blue Wrench Emulsion

Blue Wrench Emulsion

These colors were created by forming an emulsion of cooking oil and water drops on the shiny side of a CD, and then shining a bright light on to the mixture. I used my 60 mm macro lens focused as closely as possible. The colors can be changed by partially blocking the light, and also by using a mirror to change where the light goes. This is fun stuff to play with. This is straight photography (whatever that is), and not created on a computer, although I used Photoshop to adjust contrast, saturation and remove tiny bubbles and specks of dust.

I’ve created an album with psychedelic content that can be seen here if you like this sort of thing. www.flickr.com/photos/9422878@N08/sets
