Seven in Seven

Where are we going? Life, the timeless, mysterious gift, is still evolving. What wonders, or terrors, does evolution hold in store for us in the next ten thousand years? In a million? In six million? Perhaps the answer lies in this old house in this old and misty valley…

Oblique Strategy: Use Fewer Notes

I am not a fan of internet memes, challenges, viral videos, cat images, or Rick Ashtley.

However, when I was invited to do the “Seven ‘Days, Seven Black and White Photos” on Facebook, I decided to do the thing.

Because I wanted to.

  1. I love day 5 but day 6 did it for me… Yo… That’s beautiful. Just one question… How? What camera did you use? Exposure? Ok, maybe more than just one… Haha. Great photos though Bill. Take away.. Because you wanted to. 👌

    • Thanks for the kind words. Day 6 is a shot of the moon over the Dallas skyline from the river bottoms, taken on one of my full moon rides. Nothing special – Nikon D3300, 55-200mm lens at 200mm on a bulb exposure. I didn’t have a tripod – the camera is braced on a stone cow sculpture, of all things. Messed with a bit in photoshop.

      I want to improve my night shooting – and put together a kit (tripod, remote release) that I can carry on my bicycle.

      • Haha… Improvising is the name of the game. But you messed up really good. I can tell what I’m looking at and the other elements in the shot don’t take away from the subject. I’d die to have such a beautiful shot of the moon. Unfortunately it’s not a good idea to ride around on a bike at night with an expensive camera and gear where I’m from… Hehe. Good idea on the kit though, that way you’re prepared for the next time. This is still an amazing start. 👍
