Clothes for Sale

I think this might be the first time in my travels that I have ever seen Amish put clothing on a rack for sale along the road. I should have bought some because I think I have a secret desire to become Amish but then again I would not look that good in a dress.


The Cleaning Crew

This was a real spur of the moment shot as I pulled up to a stop sign in small town Intercourse Pa,and saw these three Amish girls on some sort of cleaning excursion. I had enough time to roll my window down get three shots off and they were out of sight behind the bushes on the left. They are almost in perfect sync with their stride.

Shrouded in Mystery

Heavy fog envelopes the landscape and creates layers of depth.This is in a local park and while I was shooting here,joggers would suddenly appear out of the mist and just as quickly they would fade from sight. The sun made an appearance and was subdued by the heavy fog.

See the Possibilities

I took this image last night for two reasons.The first was to see what it might look like with luminaries here in the winter, and the second was to illustrate what you can do with a little imagination and effort.The top photo is what I envisioned here and the bottom is what it looked like when I first got there. As the light level drops, the colors change and the interplay of light and dark changes and becomes more balanced and there is a certain point where everything is as close as possible to perfect. I knew I wanted to light the trees to reflect in the water and was kind of surprised my tablet and remote worked this far from the camera when I was all the way over at the trees with my flash. I also used my tablet to operate the camera on live view to see exactly where to place the luminaries when I had only myself to rely on to place them before it got dark. A few luminaries on the left would have been nice but I did not have time to put any there. The land owner also was very helpful by hiding the cars at the farm on the right.
