Sorry it has been so long since I posted anything. The reason is fairly simple; I haven't really had anything worth posting about. I've not done a ton of shooting this summer, and what I have done hasn't had a whole heck of a lot that's worth sharing. In fact, I did start one blog post about dealing with failure, but the subject failed to move me (pun intended, but still true).
So, here's a couple that I am happy with.
I went to the Como Zoo almost two months ago in order to check out the butterfly exhibit there (I haven't processed the butterfly shots yet but I think some turned out pretty decent). While wandering around I noticed these flamingos resting off in the pond. I liked the way they became almost abstract shapes due to the way they were standing.
I also liked this orangutan. They have the most expressive faces (or poses).
Finally, here's the newest addition to my Dead Tree/Stump/Branches project. Besides the large arch formed by the tree, I found it quite interesting that the only bit still remaining was bark (and such a large piece, well over 10 feet).
