It is getting harder to take a photo each day because it’s gets dark so early. It’s not fully light when I go to work in the morning and nearly dark when I get home at night. So I have to use artificial light plus a bit more creativity than when I’m wandering about outside and usually find plenty for photo subjects. I got through the dark months last year and I think I only missed one day, and that miss was because I forgot not because it was dark or I couldn’t dream up anything to photograph.
The current theme for Out Of Focus, my camera club is Where I Live. I taking pictures in and around my house, all on my property (actually not mine, I rent a house with a large, wooded lot). My idea is to take a picture using a tripod of, for example, my front porch. Then without moving the tripod I take the same picture using the self-timer, this time with myself in the picture. I’m trying to put some humor in the pictures. I don’t know if I’ve succeeded. Here are the first four pairs of photos.
Here are a few more shots from the last few days.
