Finding Nemo – I found him!! 11 Feb 2013

Wow!  What a storm!  I was lucky enough to receive 3-4 feet of snow!  Well, lucky in that I have a good shovel, a 4wd truck, and a back strong enough to shovel a few hundred feet of driveway.

Well, anyway, I survived, didn’t loose power, and took a break after shoveling to break out my camera and enjoy the winter wonderland 🙂  On Sunday I took a few moments to visit a small beach to see what snow on the beach was like.

Please let me know what you think of these photos!

8 Feb 2013 – Baby it’s cold outside!

Here are some of my images from the past week or so, I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them!

There is an irrigation pond not far from my home where the ‘old timers’ like to gather and fish.  Not having good ice traction, I wasn’t able to talk to this gentleman, other than to ask if I could take his photo.

I was able to borrow my friends’s wide angle lens (Tokina 11-16mm), so I brought it to Avery Point in Groton, CT to try it out a little bit. As it was my first time with the lens, I wasn’t too impressed in general w/ my images, the lens is fun, though it feels almost like a prime. I think I’ll try the Canon 10-20 next 🙂

Wednesday night, after teaching a class to kids on photography, I felt inspired to shoot some night photography. I shot these from a pedestrian bridge over Rt 32 in Waterford, CT. In the first image you can see the athletic complex for ConCollege in the foreground and the town of Groton across the river. The brightest lights lights across the river, on the left side, are SubBase New London (yes, it’s in Groton) where I was stationed before I got out.

These last two I took today. I had a green glass bowl that I had used to make banana bread that was in the drying rack over the portion cups I used to pre-measure my ingredients. It looked pretty cool as the muted sun glinted off the now-green cups.

Day 364-366 Last photos from 2012

This post is WAY overdue, I know, but it’s here 🙂 I was a bit distracted the last few days of 2012 spending time with my fiancé 🙂  But I was reminded that I still need to wrap up this project.

It took me about 4 days for the momentum of the project to slow down enough for me to not take a photo during an entire day!  It was a weird experience after spending a year taking photos every day to not pick up my camera, but it was nice to not have to worry about the project while I was spending the time w/ my new fiancé before she went back to Spain for 3 months.

I’ve not given up photography, but am spending more time learning more, reading, watching videos on photography.  My focus in 2013 is to focus on improving my technique, skills, and creative eye.  I might try to take up some portrait gigs for friends as practice, too 🙂

I currently am working to set up a new website, where I can showcase my best work, and still keep up a blog with a more appropriate name than “365photosbyjeremy” 🙂  Once it’s up I’ll let  you all know so you can follow me at my new home 🙂  Until then I’ll keep posting some images here as I work on the new site.  I hope you will content to follow my work and provide feedback.

Well, here are the last few images from 2012, I hope you enjoy them!
