First Random Outing Of 2009

My husband and I got in the car over the holiday weekend and drove to the gas station, filled it up, picked a direction and just drove. We have not been able to afford to do this for a while, but decided the block party that was forming around our house for the second day in a row was getting a little out of hand, and I wanted to get out and shoot some sunsets. We drove around Cayuga Lake. I had a blast, and he took a much needed nap. Here are a few of the things I came back with.

First stop ... Taughannock Falls

This was taken along some side road along the lake

A wonderful sunset

I love just getting in the car and going. You never know what you will come back with until you upload it to the computer and take a good look at it. My next adventure is to Rochester this coming weekend. I hope I will come back with some good stuff. My cousin Erma is coming with me. We planned to check out Letchworth State Park, George Eastman House, Seneca Park Zoo, and some of the surrounding parks, waterfalls and whatever else we come across.

Threw An Opening

May's challenge should be fun it is called threw an opening ... Imagine the possibilities. I will be working a lot with that this month. I am feeling the need to be out in new places and seeing new things. I cannot wait to see what I come back with. Both of the images below were taken at Cornell Plantations.

Selective Focus

Last month we had a photo challenge within the online community I am part of and it was called Selective Focus. With this technique, we can choose one part of the image to be sharp and in focus, while the rest of the image is kept out of focus.

I very recently took my camera back out to start carrying around with me again until the colder weather comes back again. I do not hold up well in colder weather ... So I put my camera in the closet in a safe place and wait for the warmer days to come visit.

I have never really done anything with selective focus before, and I will continue to work with it as I learn. Here is my second attempt with working with what I perceive as Selective Focus.
