Summer Dahlia

Of the five dahlia I planted for D's wedding table flowers three have produced flowers.



Rain most of the day.

 I planted one extra and it looks like it will bloom soon. Didn't take a picture.



Lots of rain. Grey days. Cooler.

Embrace the Eclectic 6 - Metal, Wood a and Painting

Saturday, a day to myself. No meal preps, time to go the the Farmer's Market. Time to read, to try out different settings on my camera. Time.


DH picked up some metal/wood great junk this weekend.




Cloudy day. Lots of great texture for backgrounds. 




Setting on camera: 50 mm lens, Manual, cloud, ISO changing between 100 to 400, F5.6. What a treat to play around with settings and see different results.


The drill handle screws off - a place to store the bits.


Used a rusted galvanized oval bucket and a worn out table top as display bases. Slaw cutters and a green tin box for background plus house siding. 


Cornbread moulds - corn and perch.

Learning more all the time. 




Vintage cast metal well rusted iron rest.


A few weeks ago DH brought home this very large painting, a view from Queen Elizabeth Gardens towards the North Shore (Vancouver BC). 
Shot indoors, ISO 6400, F5.6, Manual.



Jon Giesbrecht Photopgraphy has a photo view somewhat similar to this painting, from Queen Elizabeth Park toward the North Shore (row 6, last picture).

Thanks for visiting.
