The Ginkgo Biloba Tree

The Ginkgo Biloba Tree

Thurs. 11.21.19 – Here have another auntumnal photo of a bright yellow gingko tree from my Monday Kew Gardens photo walk. The last of the bright fall trees are a delightful remedy for the dark, rainy skies.

London Skyline, Waiting for the Full Moon

London Skyline, Waiting for the Full Moon

Tues. 11.12.19 – Happy November Full Moon for those of you who can see it. Late yesterday evening, I took the Nikon out to the Embankment bridge to photograph the Full Moon rising over The Shard and the Thames. Due to large clouds hugging the first 10-15 degrees up from the horizon, I was out of luck.

While I persevered out in the cold and damp for nearly an hour before I gave up, I was able to take a number of good shots of the storm clouds and the London skyline. The above is one of my two favorites from that hour.

Mon. 11.11.19 – One of the best parts about the dark time of the year, particularly in November, is the blue quality of light in late dusk. I turned from taking photos of the London Skyline, as seen from the Embankment bridge over the Thames, to see this Southeastern train departing from Charing Cross station and I was entranced by the yellow light of the inside of the train contrasting with the violet light of the bridge trusses behind the train on top of the blue light of the dusk. The man reading or looking at his phone sitting on the train was a nice extra.

Middle Aged and Old :: Sweet Pea and Belle

Middle Aged and Old :: Sweet Pea and Belle

Sat. 10.26.19 – Sweet Pea and I are in Arizona visiting / dog sitting the lovely, but very elderly, Miss Belle le Cane while her people are out and about. Our good old friend Miss Belle is now 14 1/2 years old – or somewhere in her 90-somethings. Belle is feeling her age.

Belle arrived to Family Hanen as a rescue puppy in October of 2005 while I was away at grad school. There were a lot of good years in between 2005 and 2019: dog beach, dog parades, dog sitting, walks, playing fetch – and a whole lot of photos.

Belle is still trucking on with heart pills and CBD oil. There is very little running but she perks up about an hour or so after the food/pills/hempoil.

In other news, Arizona is Arizona. It is dry and warm to hot.

Sun. 05.26.19 – Today I went out and about with my cheap Amazon $12 extension tubes for Macro photography. I went out and explored yesterday to see if there are any flowers in Hyde Park that would work to take macro photos of. The answer was yes as late May spring has fully sprung in the London parks.

Thus, I took my extension tubes with a manual 24mm old Nikon lens along with my Nikon D850 DSLR out and took many photos up close. Very up close.

Here are a few of my favorites. Per usual, double click to see the enlargements.
