Lizard and Sunflowers

Retroblog: October 16, 2000. I went deep into the hard drive and recovered a series of photos from my first Nashville trip. It was a fun one! (Keep in mind point-and-shoot digital cameras technology in 2000.)

Retroblog: October 14, 2000. John Baldwin and I do some field work in New Madrid, Missouri.


I'll not elaborate why I'm digging through plumbing supplies...sigh.

The next day, I wrote in a little park by a ditch.

I published that blog. Out back the light was nice and I went out to photograph whatever was looking good. Sunflowers!

After photographing the Plumber Lizard, the DSC-H1 had an overnight stay outdoors and an adventure with the sprinklers. A brief scare all day, it sprang back to life (again) this evening. B e s t c a m e r a e v e r.

Old Photos

I have been having a good time creating new blogs from old photos. Some are geology, some are music. Occasionally my emergent 'photography' is present, too. These retroblogs have fewer images than more recent ones. It was fun to time travel and also to apply current image processing steps to finish up and present old images. I met with a web marketing consultant last month; I'm populating the 'meta internet' with content for my future marketing efforts. You may notice odd third-person usage. Below, I marked the text orange for my favorites.

I am looking forward to merging my blogs 2006 through 2008 into barronphotography, with larger images. Many epic travels and photographs therein!

All righty then, here's a few shots from yesterday.

That's it from me today!

Hermitage

At my window, watching the sun go, hoping the stars know, it's time to shine.
Daydreams, aloft on dark wings, soft as the sun streams at day's decline.

At My Window, Townes Van Zandt, 1987.

Later, while reading Ansel's The Camera, the moon began rising in the east.

The five year old Sony DSC-H1 has so much life left in it! Shot this on timer while knelt down to stabilize the quasi-tripod I have right now. There was another interesting attempt. Fun to rediscover low-light capability of the old camera!

Me on Sunday


Remember these?

Mazourka Peak

Sierras Eastside, this morning, from the end of the street.

Tonight was great! Headed up Mazourka Canyon.
