Sometimes I spend too much time looking at other people's pictures and not enough time taking pictures. This morning I was browsing around deviantart.com when I decided I should be out shooting instead of sitting at the computer. Thanks to MrsBox and Mantis17 for the inspiration. Hit the "Read More" for another one.
When I was a kid I used to look at water towers when we went on our family vacations and wish we could stop so I could take a picture of them. That was long before I ever considered taking photography seriously. Oddly, I've never revisited that and photographed any water towers. Until today. (Angola, IN)
I'm keeping the two pictures a day thing going another day. Click the photos to enlarge them and get the full effect. Also... I will be in Indiana for work the next couple days. I probably won't be posting until Wednesday or Thursday but I will keep taking the photos.
I took both of these photos with my Canon PowerShot S90. I can't believe how good point and shoot cameras have become. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a very powerful zoom but I guess that's a fair trade off on a camera that can do this kind of macro photography.
This is the kind of photo I have been into lately. No fancy lighting, no awkward pose, wear what you got on. In five or ten years this will be a nice record of who she was on June 7, 2011. I don't do a whole lot of writing on here, it's more about the photos, but I will say today's photo was inspired by Chase Jarvis and Clay Enos.
More Little League photos tonight. The pose on the left is my favorite baseball pose. It's easy to crop tight and the shirt logo is visible. Most kids go into the pose on the right and depending on their stance it may or may not look very good. This guy has a nice stance but some get there arms so high their shoulder blocks their chin and others turn so far that you can read the numbers on their back and can't see their hands.
