You can always count on Chickadees, anytime of the year, always hoping for food. Flying right at you and just missing. They seldom perch like this one did and patiently wait for their portrait to be taken.

I wanted to try my HDR technique on modern buildings. It worked well, with a few issues concerning very tiny details I decided to remove. There is still a school for the wild HDR that focuses on colour tones. But I think that going a more natural route works nicely for the things I like to shoot in town.

Every year I hope to get one or two scenes of a heron hunting and this one did not disappoint. The stare, the sudden movement, and the tasty morsel in the beak. Classic Green Heron, determined, poised and fast.

I came across this wooden house just off the downtown core of the city. From my perspective the place looked western and to best capture that I shot a portion of the side of the building where the trellis and windows were the highlights. A piece of the whole telling a larger story.

I was reading an article about landscape photography and making use of the foreground, specifically about anchoring your photo with three things. I thought it might be fun to take a series of photographs of three things. The next day in the park I saw what became this photographtwo lilies, the island bush and the reflections. It’s a start on the project.

Modern (Two Photographs)

I saw something like this in a magazine. I suspect they used a tilt-shift lens to make sure everything lined up ( special manual lens that allows you to change perspective in camera). But I doubt, from experience, that anything lines up these days. Perfect lines just don’t exist. Just as no two balconies mirror one another. It struck me as an interesting view on life.
