New theme is another camera setting. We are shooting at an F-stop of 4.0 all week. This is a common garden spider and the wonderful web she has woven.

Ever try to lap up water like a dog but fail miserably and wonder just how the hell they do it? Well, it looks like this, curling the bottom of their tongue to make a scoop maybe???

I decided to try my hand a water droplet photography today. I spent the better part of the morning researching the area, setting up the shot and fooling around with various camera settings. I ended up using various lights, water colours, milk, and a multitude of camera settings. I took about 200 photos, and I found a hard time picking a favourite, so I decided to post a bunch of them.

I had a really fun time setting this all up, every droplet produces something different, and it was fun to play around with it all.

Jeff was nominated for the ice bucket challenge recently and decided to perform the task today. I was fortunate enough to be there with my camera and snap a few pictures. Jeff had the perfect pour over his head for me to capture this photo, really happy with how this turned out.

St. John’s Harbour is a dandy sheltered body of water, with just one narrow entry point and high hills on all sides protecting somewhat from the weather. It’s too bad we’ve destroyed it. How long would it take nature to reclaim the water?

Not totally happy with this drop, but the lighting on the ripples is kinda cool.

Was trying to think of fountains in town today, and the only one that came to mind was Bowring Park. Wet ol day again, but it didn’t stop a bridal party from taking some pictures in the background.

There’s been no end to the rain, drizzle, and fog since the Regretta. Fogust has been a miserable old month, here’s a rushed photo of the drizzle, and rain from my patio with the doors open while some dude was smoking a j under the patio. I think the flash scared the shit out of him.

I went for a walk around Long Pond during lunch today and snagged this picture just by the Fluvarium.

Pillars sticking out of water by Harbourside Park. This was a 10 and a half minute exposure, melting the water into a milky haze.

The theme this week is water so I headed out to Topsail Beach in hopes of a magnificent sunset. We didn’t get the painting we were hoping for, but here’s the sun setting over the western shores of Conception Bay.

Melissa and I spent the whole weekend (kinda) blueberry picking. We got out Saturday on the East Coast Trail picking a few, but today in CBS we hit the mother load. Here’s a crop of the top of the bucket. Big, plump, juicy, deliciousness.
Bigg-E was in his glee. From time to time we’d give him a couple, but when we weren’t giving him any he was trimming the bushes himself. He’s a berry picking machine.
