Day 2: Peach Tree Blooming

Spring is here and has been for a little while now. This is a peach tree in our neighbors back yard. Didn’t realize I had captured the butterfly and bee in the same frame until I pulled this image up for editing. Shot with Canon 7d mkii and Canon 400mm f/5.6L.

Day 1 Post #2 Marine Corps!

I have been meaning to share these photos on the blog for a little while now. I was fortunate enough to see the Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon and Drum and Bugle Corps perform last month here in NC. Here are a  few shots I took that came out pretty sweet if you ask me.

Challenging Myself

So in order to force myself to be more active with the blog and work on my photography skills I have created a challenge. I need to post a new image to the blog everyday. It can be of anyone or anything and will be categorized as random photography so it all of the posts will be compiled on that new page which is available through the menu at the top of the site. The random photography posts will also appear on the main page of the site but the new page and category was created so that they will be available in one location to be easily browsed through.

My plan is to write something very short about each photo in order to maintain the focus on the photo itself. This is mainly to force me to practice and improve my skills and also to provide more content for anyone reading the blog to look through. So without further delay here is Random Photography Day 1.

A simple shot of the moon captured the other day. Taken with my Canon 7D mkii and Tamron 70-300mm lens at 300mm with some editing in Adobe LR.

Mexican Birthday Feast

So Nancy made it back stateside in time for my birthday which happened to fall on Easter Sunday this year. She had a small get together for me that included Oshie, me, my brother Ethan and his dog, his roommate Scott and of course Nancy. So yeah it was small but we aren’t really party people ha-ha.

Anyway she knows how much I love Mexican food so we had a little Mexican cookout. She made her awesome salsa verde and guacamole, rice and beans while I grilled the carne asada. Of course there was Mexican beer and Oshie and his cousin Boston (my brother’s dog) were taking full advantage of the jolly atmosphere and getting their fill of the steak.

Nancy bought me some cool birthday gifts while she was in Norway(sorry I didn’t take pictures of them). The first was Norwegian Absinthe and the second gift was a beer Stein from Iceland she bought on their way back to the states. It is sweet and I guess I have to start a stein collection now.

Anyway I just want to get a post up as I have been slacking off again. With spring finally here I will have plenty of new pictures of Oshie and spring adventures to share. Cheers!

Oh and Oshie says hi!
