It’s been a while since I’ve posted. I don’t shoot (or process) near as often as I would like. I guess that’s just letting life get in the way of stuff I love. Life being school, wedding planning, and just not taking the time to do anything with my camera. The 365 project was really good at keeping me in the photo mode.
But anyway, here are some photos I’ve taken in the past few weeks. Enjoy!
Tonight as I was pulling into my church’s parking lot to lead the final Financial Peace University class of this series, I noticed that many of the trees in the parking lot islands had lights very close to them. From the right perspective it looked like there was a light shining from the top of the tree itself, illuminating it’s branches from the top. The rain had broken by the time class was over and left a light haze which was illuminated by the lights and gave the area around it a nice glow. So what did I do? Bust out my tripod and camera, of course! I know you are not surprised 🙂
Mystic, CT, that is! Today was a nice, clear, not-so-cold day, so I went with a friend to Mystic, CT with our cameras and did some street photography, in addition to some ‘regular’ photography.
SeeingSpotsPhoto is co-hosting another Collab Photography Challenge with WheretoWillie on street photography. This first image is my first attempt, and maybe one of my submissions. You should check out the links above and join in the fun!
This morning was very rainy, but by mid afternoon the rain had stopped, but a good fog remained, so a friend and I headed to Eastern Point in Groton, CT to shoot. Then we went to a good sushi dinner then back near the point to shoot again. It’s hard to not have a good day when it includes photography and sushi 🙂

Every day I drive past this college on my commute home, and love the way it looks in the dark. Each street light is topped with a green light, and the tower glows a new color every 10 seconds. It took some paying attention to realize it was a school and not a business of sorts. I’ve been meaning to shoot this for a while, so today I took the exit and tried to capture its beauty. I’m afraid that I was not able to do it justice; I’m not terribly proud of the results, but maybe on a darker night, when I’m not trying to get home and satisfy my hunger, I can take more time, try different angles & views, and get something I will be happy with.

One of the street lights that only had the upper green light working:

This morning as I was pulling out of a snow-covered drive way, I was thinking that shooting a snow-covered landscape under star light would look cool. But that was before I checked the weather and learned it was going to rain today.
So I shot what was available: rain.
This first shot is of my windshield (from the inside) while parked at the local grocery store. 55 mm, 1/4 sec, f/5/6, ISO 3200, EF-S 18-55mm IS Kit Lens (Rain on Glass)
This second photo was a lone street light at a freeway on/off ramp
